Overview

Join us for ~11.5 miles RT in the Northern Presidential Range where we will explore waterfalls, the Madison Hut, and attempt to summit Adams and Madison: the second and fifth tallest mountains in New England. Our first night will be spent at the Moose Brook State Park in Gorham. In the morning, we will begin our ascent towards Madison visiting several waterfalls and the Madison Hut along the way. The second night will be spent at a backcountry campsite. On the final morning, we will have the option of summiting Adams before returning to the trailhead. This will be a moderate to strenuous hike at a slow to moderate pace. Recent, relevant experience in the White Mountains or similar terrain is required. Group size is limited to four. Preference will be given to attendees of the Explore Your Inner Backpacker seminar. Register by Sunday, July 30. Cost is $12 for campsite fees. Please plan to provide all of your own gear and food. Forecast of lightning or sustained rain will cancel.
