Three peaks in the middle of the presidential Range including the highest Peak in all of New England in an epic day hike. This is a great climb over two peaks to get to the highest point in New England. You will ascend Edmand's Path to the intersection with the Crawford Path over the Southern Presidential Ridge. On the way up you will have sweeping views to the north and may even see the train on the Cog Railway steaming up the mountain. Once on the ridge you'll jog over to get to the summit of Eisenhower at 4,761 feet and then continue on over Monroe at 5,385' past a very cool alpine lake and AMC hut to your final destination, Mt. Washington at 6,288 feet! Because Mt. Washington has a scenic highway to the top you have several options. You can arrange for friends/family to pick you up at the top and drive you down saving your knees. On the other hand, if you are out to include these mountains in your peak bagging lists and want to join any of the climbing clubs and check these off you need to hike yourself back down for the climb to be considered legit.

We found this on the difficult side? Going up was way easier on knees and feet than going down. Bc the trail is literally rocks I HIGHLY suggest walking poles that help tremendously on way down!! We plan on purchasing them before our next hike Mt Adams! The summit is awesome...360 degree view

Planned to drive Mt Clinton Rd. to get to Edmands Path, but as of June 8th, the road is still closed. Had to do Crawford Path to Mt. Pierce instead.
