Join us on this hut-to-hut adventure across the southern Presidential Range of the White Mountains. Backcountry lodging and hearty meals are provided at AMC's Lakes of the Clouds and Mizpah Spring Huts. We hike from the Ammonoosuc Ravine Trailhead to Lakes of the Clouds Hut along the steep and challenging Ammonoosuc Ravine. The next day, we traverse the southern Presidential Range to Mizpah Spring Hut, giving us ample opportunity to explore the ridge and listen for white throated sparrows along the way. We will examine and discuss alpine adaptations and compare alpine plant communities.This trip involves moderate/difficult hiking on steep, rocky terrain. Weather can change quickly and become quite cold and windy above treeline. Participants should be in good hiking shape, have proper hiking boots and clothing, and be prepared for a summer alpine adventure!
