Mount Eisenhower and Mount Pierce

Trip dates: Saturday, July 22, 2017 12:00 AM

Come join us on a 1-day summer loop hike of Mount Pierce and Mount Eisenhower. Enjoying 360 views , hiking to the summits of Mount Eisenhower and mount Pierce -Both are 4000-footers, offering fantastic views of the Presidential range weather permitting. The ridge line trail between the two peaks offers views for days!! Expect to start early, hiking a distance of 8.3 miles. There will be steady climbs and some bridge crossings, but all very worth it for what awaits you at the top! We will be car spotting, to avoid a 2.3 flat mile walk to our cars . This is a moderate hike, with 3150' elevation gain suited for hikers who are in good shape and enjoy good company.
