Join AMC Outdoor Guides on an attempt to summit New England's highest peak, Mount Washington. At 6,288' the "rock pile" should be on everyone's bucket list. Often underestimated due to its low elevation for a summit above treeline, and its relatively short mileage. This challenging hike may be difficult for some to accomplish in one day, so we will take advantage of Lakes of the Clouds Hut and spend the night, hiking back down the next day. This trip involves difficult hiking on steep, rocky terrain. Weather can change quickly and become quite cold and windy above treeline. Participants should be good hiking shape, have proper hiking boots and clothing and be prepared for an alpine adventure! There is no guarantee the group will reach the summit. AMC Guides will decide if a summit attempt can be made based on weather and other safety conditions.
