A unique opportunity to stay at the Lakes of the Clouds Hut, near Mt. Washington. Come join the leaders on this fun hike on the presidential ridge. We'll start early on Saturday morning on the Crawford Path Trail, which is the oldest maintained footpath in the United States. We will hike up to Mt Pierce then across open ledges with magnificent views in all directions to Mt. Eisenhower, which again has excellent views, then on to Mt. Monroe, passing over Mt. Franklin on the way and ending at Lakes of the Clouds Hut for dinner. On Day 2 we will have breakfast and then head out again on the Crawford Path to Mt. Washington (1.6 miles) where we'll stop for views and snacks (bring your lunch money) and then head down Jewell Trail. Register at REGI link


Driving directions will be given to approved participants a week prior to the trip.
