Summit two of the Presidentials: Monroe and Washington! We will hike the Ammonoosuc Ravine Trail up to Monroe, then take the Crawford Path up Washington, finally descending along the Cog Rail. This itinerary is contingent on safe weather conditions, we will make adjustments if the forecast changes.

Participants need to be comfortable hiking with crampons and ice axes, and with layers appropriate for extended time above treeline.

8 miles round trip distance, 4200 ft elevation gain
