Lodge to Hut: Mount Washington Hike and Overnight June 7,8 & 9

amcPINKHAM NOTCH NH – Join an AMC Outdoor Guide 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 it’s 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.

With an experienced AMC Outdoor Guide you’ll hike at a moderate pace to Lakes of the Clouds via the Ammonoosuc Ravine trail. We’ll stop at the hut for a rest and lunch. With lighter packs we’ll continue up the 1.5 miles to the summit of Mount Washington. We’ll explore the summit, take pictures on the “rock pile” and hike back down to the hut for the night. After a well-deserved dinner and evening program we’ll take to our bunks for the night. Continue reading Lodge to Hut: Mount Washington Hike and Overnight June 7,8 & 9
