Annual Presidential traverse

Hiking/Backpacking Date: Sat June 30, 2018

Join us for a hyper-scenic single-day odyssey over the challenging terrain of NH's iconic Presidential Range! We will hike in two teams. A southbound team will follow the classic route from the Appalachia trailhead in Randolph, NH to the Crawford Path trailhead in Bretton Woods. The route includes 10 peaks (Madison, Adams, Jefferson, Clay, Washington, Monroe, South Monroe, Franklin, Eisenhower, Pierce), 7 of which are official 4000 footers. Stats: 20 miles and 8600 feet of cumulative elevation gain at a moderate pace (1.5+ mph). For an additional 2 miles and 400 feet of elevation gain, there will be the option of including Mt. Jackson, an 8th official 4000 footer.

Concurrently, a northbound team will hike from the AT crossing south of Crawford Notch, up to Appalachia. This route includes 12 peaks (those named above in reverse order, plus Mt. Webster), 8 of which are official 4000 footers. Stats: 24 miles and 9300 feet of cumulative elevation gain at a fast pace (2+ mph). Paths will cross and car keys will change hands on Mt. Washington.

Because of a very early start and late finish, we will offer group lodging options for the nights before and after.

Due to the hike's size and complexity, TEAMWORK in the form of mutual respect and support, positive attitude, flexibility and bonding is especially key. We also need to be similarly considerate of hut croo, Mt. Washington Visitor Center staff, and other hikers we encounter. As the last example on our timeline of being there for each other, we have a strong tradition of not heading home after the hike until all of us have safely gotten back to our cars, re-grouped and debriefed, possibly as late as 11 pm. If these considerations will not work for you, please do not register.

PROFILE DATA: If you're registering for this trip, please make sure that your profile here in REGI (especially the Experience and Exercise sections) is up to date (click "My Profile" above), with special emphasis and detail on the most recent 3 months. Please also include your hiking/exercise plans for the weeks leading into the Traverse. Without this information, we will not be able to determine the degree to which the trip matches your capabilities and needs and will therefore not be able to approve your registration.
