Prerequisites
Physical condition for a trip of this length and elevation gain.

Join us on a day-trip to two mountains in the Presidential Range -- Mt. Eisenhower and Mt. Pierce! The hike will be about 8.2mi with 3000’ of elevation gain, and features 360-degree views of Mt. Washington and the Southern Presidentials, as well as an above-treeline ridge hike and a waterfall! We will also have the option to tack on a visit to AMC’s Mizpah Spring Hut: see this route.

The plan will be to leave early on Saturday morning. We'll hike at a comfortable pace. We might decide to hike on Sunday instead, depending on the weather.

Pre-trip meeting on zoom: Thursday June 9 at 8pm.
