The 54th annual NH Presidential Range hike is a strenuous and wonderful 9-day hut-to-hut group hiking adventure amid some of the most spectacular peaks in the New Hampshire's rugged White Mountains! Depending on the daily hike options you choose, you will total between 42 and 81 miles, gain 14,000'-24,000' of elevation, and summit between 7 and 28 high peaks, 20 of which are on the official AMC 4000 footer list. Four AMC leaders and max 21 hikers. We hike in small groups averaging 5-7 people based on each day's chosen route options and paces. For more details, visit http://www.amcnhprh.org/.

Alex Nedzel

Alex enjoys hiking in all seasons. While best known for fast-paced single day, multi-peak mega-hikes and gnarly back country bushwhacks, he will enjoy sharing his love for the mountains just about anywhere, with hikers at all ability levels.

Elizabeth Ryan

Elizabeth Ryan is a four-season hiking and backpacking leader with the AMC's Boston Chapter as well as the coordinator for the chapter's Spring Hiking Program. She has completed the New Hampshire 4000 footers, hiked in the Baxter park area and explored some of the glaciated North-west peaks. Upcoming trips include hiking in the Scottish Highlands and Iceland.

Jonathan Niehof

Jon finished a round of the New England Hundred Highest just before heading off to the Southwest for four years. He's thrilled to be back in New England and working seriously on the winter 4000-footers. Other fun had in the meantime includes the Pikes Peak Marathon and a rim-to-rim-to-rim run of the Grand Canyon. Goal-oriented but interested in keeping things safe and fun.
