Join AMC Outdoor Guides on an attempt to summit New England's highest peak, Mount Washington. At 6,288' the "rock pile" towers over the surrounding peaks and should be on everyone's bucket list. A challenging and spectacular peak, Mt. Washington is often notorious for its extreme weather, including the highest surface wind speed ever recorded by a human, 231pmh! At 4.2 miles one way, (8.5-9 miles depending on trails taken down the mountain) this will be an exciting and challenging hike. This trip involves 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 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. Hikers should be prepared to hike up and down the mountain. COVID-19 Response AMC's COVID response priorities are safety, transparency, and mission. We continue to follow the science and recommendations from CDC. This includes a vaccination requirement for all participants in this program. Exemptions: AMC understands that medical or religious exemptions must be considered.
