Overview

Bag Mt Madison via Madison Gulf Trail with a stop at Madison Hut (closed for season), descending by the Osgood trail (11.5 miles). This trip ascends Mt Madison via a seldom visited jewel of the White Mountains, the Madison Gulf Trail. This overgrown trail ascends via mossy boulders and quite forests visiting multiple cascades to the headwall of Madison Gulf, then ascends hand-over-hand up steep ledges and huge boulders to meet the Parapet trail. The Osgood Trail descends endless knobs on loose rocky ledges and is exposed to the full blast of the northern presidentials weather for an extensive period. You will need to be in excellent shape and have extensive hiking experience. Be prepared to pivot in the case of bad weather.
