Overview

Come join us to hike Mt. Jefferson, New Hampshire's third tallest mountain. If the weather cooperates we will have amazing 360 degree views including Mount Washington to the south. We will climb Mt. Jefferson via an out and back on Caps Ridge Trail. The total mileage will be 5 miles and the elevation gain will be 2,760 feet. Even though we will be taking the easiest route to the summit, the trail is steep, rough, and involves scrambles over ledges. This hike is not a good choice for beginners, hikers who feel uncomfortable on rock slabs, or anyone with a fear of heights. Note this hike is part of the Young Members Couch to 4k Program https://regi.amcboston.org/event/2360 which is a series of hikes intended to introduce participants to the basic skills and knowledge required for safe and fun outdoor experiences. Priority will be given to the program participants. Non-program participants will only be approved if there is spot available.
