This trip is part of the Boston Chapter Winter Hiking Program (WHP) and is only open to registered participants of that program. If you would like more information about the WHP, please email us at whp19@hb.amcboston.org or follow the link below.
Climb beautiful Mt. Pierce (4312 ft), a 6 mile roundtrip expedition to amazing views of the valley, Mt. Washington, Mt. Eisenhower, and northern Presidentials (weather permitting). The last tenth of a mile is above treeline. 2,400 ft of elevation gain. We will hike in two groups and if the weather is good, one of the sections will continue to Mt Eisenhower (extra 3 miles and 1200 ft of gain total all above treeline). If this extension is offered, one group will descend directly from Pierce as well. The extended hike requires that we move along and is an level 3 rather than a level 2 hike. It is a good training hike for the above treeline workshop.
