Mount Jefferson

Trip dates: Saturday, February 29, 2020 12:00 AM

Join us for a winter day hike to the majestic Mount Jefferson! This 10 mile hike will follow the Castle Trail, which leads us from the north to the summit of Mount Jefferson (5716 ft., NH48), named after the third president of the US. If weather permits, we will have wonderful views of the Presidential Range and the Great Gulf Wilderness. The elevation gain is 4200 ft. Participants should pack full gear for winter hiking above treeline, and have recent experience with hikes of similar length and elevation gain.

Casey Ajalat

Casey leads trips year around for the hiking/backpacking committee of the AMC Boston Chapter. He is heavily engaged in the H/B leadership and training programs such as Spring/Fall Leadership Training as well as our educational programs in the Spring and Winter Hiking Programs. Like other hikers that hike before sun up and after sun down and do 20+ miles, Casey likes to do the same only keep it under 10 miles :) He's experienced but not a speed daemon
