PINKHAM 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

PINKHAM NOTCH NH – The Tuckerman Inferno adventure race started in 2000 as the annual fundraiser for the Friends of Tuckerman Ravine. The race pays homage to the original American Inferno ski races of the 1930’s. While the classic American Infernos were top to bottom ski races only, the current Tuckerman Inferno now includes running, kayaking, biking, hiking and skiing to create a pentathlon event that is one of the most challenging adventure races in the country. Individuals and relay teams of up to five people compete to see who will be the fastest to cover an approximately 36 mile course that starts in the Mount Washington Valley and finishes in Tuckerman Ravine. Individual champions are crowned Tuckerman and Tuckerwoman and there are terrific prizes for all categories of competitors.
