Trip Overview

Fall in Colorado sure is beautiful, but have you ever wondered what all the hype is about fall in the Northeast? Now is your chance to find out! Come enjoy a week of hut-to-hut hiking in New Hampshire's White Mountains during peak fall foliage season. This seven day, six night trip will consist of daytime hiking along the famed Appalachian Trail (AT), completing parts of the Franconia Ridge and the Presidential Traverse, often noted as two of the most beautiful and rugged sections on the entire AT.
New England Fall Foliage

On the final day, we will summit Mt. Washington, New Hampshire's state highpoint (and home to some of the worst weather ever recorded - but don't worry, I've been promised a bluebird day).

Lodging will be bunkhouse style with sumptuous dinners and breakfasts, so we'll be carrying only daypacks with our lunches, snacks, and clothing.

The huts are spaced 6-8 miles apart and elevation gains will range from 2,000 to 3,000 feet per day. The Mt. Washington summit day will be longer. Along the way, we'll enjoy hiking both through and above New Hampshire's variegated Fall colors.
