Join us for a single-day hike of scenic Monroe and Washington. Weather permitting, we will have fantastic views. Washington is the highest peak in the White Mountains at 6'288 feet. Both peaks will be over 4,000 feet for those who are looking to hike the 4,000 footers. This will be a loop hike and we will hike the Ammonoosuc and Jewell trails. This hike is not recommended for beginners as one of the sections is extremely steep and rough and can prove quite arduous to many hikers, particularly to those with limited trail-walking experience.
