Overview

Join us for a winter day hike to the summits of two of the most spectacular Presidential mountains in the Whites, Adams and Madison! We will take Valley Way to the Madison Hut from where we will hike across to the summit of Mt. Adams (5,774'). Upon returning to Madison Hut, we will then summit Mt. Madison (5,367') before descending via Valley Way back to the trailhead. This is a burly out-and-back 10.4-mile hike which, if the weather cooperates, will provide us with fantastic views from both summits. We plan to move at a moderate pace, but unpredictable weather and winter conditions on the exposed summits will make this a strenuous hike. Significant prior winter hiking experience on above treeline summits is therefore required, as is full winter gear (winter boots, snowshoes, crampons, ice axe, and full face and eye protection). If trail conditions are not conducive to a safe or enjoyable trip, we will reroute to alternative peaks.

Carl is an avid hiker who enjoys, mostly, day hikes in the Whites. He has completed the New England 100 Highest Peaks, two circuits of the New Hampshire 4,000 Footers and over 40 of the New Hampshire 4,000 Footers in Winter. Please read the trip description carefully, if it says 'Peak Bagger' or 'experienced hiker', the trip is goal oriented and will not be suitable for beginners. Otherwise, we'll be out for enjoyment and the chance to take in whatever life on the trail has to offer.
