Winter view from Mount PierceHike up the two southernmost peaks of the Presidential Range - Pierce and Jackson, with Webster thrown in as a bonus! This is a great, 9+ mile loop hike that will take us up Mt. Webster and along the mountain's cliffs on the way up, then head over the partially bare summit of Mt. Jackson, past the AMC Mizpah Hut and then to the top of semi-wooded Mt. Pierce. We'll return via the southern end of the Crawford Path back down to Crawford Notch. We will meet at the Highland Center Friday evening to get to know each other, share supper together, and go over gear. The gear room is stocked with anything you don't have - except microspikes! You'll need to bring your own! The next morning we will head out as a group and hit the peaks.
