Overview

Join us on this hut-to-hut adventure across the southern Presidential Range of the White Mountains. We'll meet at the AMC Highland Center Lodge to meet the group, your AMC Outdoor Guides and review the itinerary and gear needs for our adventure. After a good night sleep and a hearty breakfast our hiking will begin. 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. All meals are provided from dinner on the first night to lunch on the last day, one night at AMC Highland Center Lodge and two nights in AMC's Backcountry Huts. This trip is rated as vigorous, see below for more detail on AMC's trip ratings. Program Highlights Hiking in world-renowned terrain, including possible summit attempts of Mt.
