Registration is required for this activity.

(best time to call: 9am - 5pm, Monday - Saturday)


The 4000 Footer series is designed for active, fit participants interested in summiting some 4000+ foot peaks in the White Mountains. Participants may be after the 48 peaks or just interested in some moderately challenging hiking in the White Mountains with a group. The program will commence Saturday morning with a welcome session where you will meet and greet other group members and guides and go over the day's route. Our professional guides will cover what to expect during the hike including terrain, trail conditions and weather, hiking safety, a recommended gear list, leave no trace, and more. Additionally, during the hike, guides will point out interesting flora/fauna along the way. The group will attempt to hike at least one 4000 footer, but actual hiking destinations may vary based on weather and trail conditions. This attempt of Mt. Jefferson, via the Caps Ridge Trail is a challenging 4000 footer hike, made slighter easier by the high elevation start. The Caps Ridge trail climbs over steep, rocky terrain for 2.5 miles, gaining 2700 feet in elevation. Round trip 5.0 miles, 5-7 hours. There is no guarantee participants will reach the summit. AMC Guides will set a turn around time, summiting will be based on the ability of the group, trail conditions and the weather.
