Overview

This trip is primarily a training hike for those participating in the AMC Presidential Range Hike (PRH), but others are welcome, space permitting. Hike three 4,000 footers in the White Maintains! We'll climb Carter Dome Mountain (4,832), South Carter Mountain (4,430) and Middle Carter Mountain (4,610) in a loop covering about 13.1 miles and 4,484 feet of elevation gain. These mountains sit in the Carter-Moriah Range, which runs along the northeastern side of Pinkham Notch. Our pace will be moderate but steady, and we expect to finish in about 9 hours. The main goal is training over rugged White Mountain terrain with plenty of climbing, but we certainly will pause to enjoy the view if the day permits. We'll also visit Mt Hight if the weather and group energy cooperates. Participants are required to bring a mask to wear during any emergency or similar situation that requires people to be within close proximity for an extended period of time. The planned trip destination, activity and/or meeting place and time may be modified to address unforeseen challenges such as adverse weather, unacceptable trail conditions or excessive crowding. In that event, participants may elect to join in that activity or opt out.

Leader




I love to hike and backpack, and lead all kinds of trips from beginner, to extra-long day hikes like a single day presi traverse, to multi-day backpacks and bushwhacks. I even lead trips overseas for the Adventure travel committee. It's all good! I've hiked the 100 Highest peaks in NE in winter, and hope to someday hike a long trail like the PCT or the AT.
