Overview

Join us on this hut to hut adventure as we explore a challenging yet stunning environment. Beginning with dinner and a comfortable night's lodging at AMC Highland Center we gear up for our backcountry adventure. We embark on our hike up the Gale River Trail to Galehead Hut. The next day we traverse the eastern edge of the Pemigewasset Wilderness to Zealand Falls Hut giving us ample opportunity to explore the ridge in full summer glory. From Zealand Falls, we continue over the Willey Range stopping for a quick resupply at the Highland Center on our way to Mizpah Spring Hut. From Mizpah Spring, the group continues north on the world-renowned Presidential Range onto Lakes of the Clouds and Madison Spring Huts both perched above treeline. Depending on the energy of the group and mountain weather there are many opportunities to summit the higher peaks each day. This trip involves challenging terrain including steep rocky ascents, uneven footing and exposed terrain above treeline. Weather can change quickly and become quite cold and windy. Participants should be excellent hiking shape, have proper hiking boots and clothing and be prepared for a summer adventure!
