Join us for a 7-mile, round trip hike up Mount Monroe. Mount Monroe is a 5,372 ft mountain in the Presidential Range of the White Mountains and the 4th highest mountain on the official 4,000 footers list of New Hampshire. The summit of Mount Monroe offers spectacular 360-degree views that include Mount Washington and the rest of the Presidential Range.

Be prepared to hike almost 3,000 ft of elevation gain in around 6-7 hours and bring a backpack with water, extra layers, snacks, lunch, mask, hand sanitizer and sunscreen. This hike is open to the public so you do not have to be an AMC member to join. All participants must sign-up and communicate with the leader ahead of time. In order to adhere to AMC guidance, the total number of participants including leaders will be capped at 10. We will wear masks and abide by social/physical distancing for the duration of the event.

To address unforeseen challenges such as adverse weather, unacceptable trail conditions or excessive crowding, the planned trip destination, activity and/or meeting place and time may be modified. In that event, participants may elect to join in that activity or opt-out.
