Overview

Time to meet some of our early presidents! With this challenging out-and-back hike in the northern Presidential Range we are aiming to reach the summits of both Mt. Madison (5,367 feet) and Mt. Adams (5,793 feet). From the trailhead of Valley Way, we will follow the gradual ascent to Madison Spring Hut, and from there ascend Mt. Madison via Gulfside Trail. We will then double back and head up to Adams via Airline Trail, then return to Valley Way and follow our original route back to the trailhead. This route will be about 9.7 miles with about 5,000 feet of elevation. Because of the rough terrain and high elevation, please consider your overall fitness level and hiking experience before signing up for this hike. Because of the location, this hike is subject to change depending on weather conditions.
