Pinkham Notch Camp
  Poor            Great



 
The AT crosses NH 16 at Pinkham Notch 8 miles north of Jackson and 12 miles south of Gorham. Parking is available but vandalism and theft have been reported. 2/25/2006 1
There are many parking places here, but this is a very popular hub for hiking and it may be difficult to find a place. Since this is on state or AMC owned land, a White Mountain National Forest parking permit is not required. The northbound trail to Section 2, here following the Lost Pond Trail, crosses NH 16. The southbound trail to Section 3 follows the Tuckerman Ravine Trail for about 250 feet from the AMC Visitor Center, then goes north on what is called the Old Jackson Road. Note that in this area trail north and south and compass north and south are reversed. 7/17/06 Ample parking but see comments

Mt. Washington Auto Road
  Poor            Great



 
See Mile 13.4 below for directions to the Mt. Washington Auto Road. There is a parking area just past the 2 mile marker where the AT crosses the Auto Road. This can be seen on the satellite view of the attached map. This is a convenient but expensive access to the AT. Currently it costs $20 for a car and driver to use the Mt. Washington Auto Road. According to their website, overnight parking is permitted at the summit if you notify them. I assume the same is true for this parking area. From the parking area the northbound trail goes south towards Pinkham Notch on the Old Jackson Road, while the southbound trail goes north on the Madison Gulf Trail. The green arrow on the attached map points to Lowe's Bald Spot. the Madison gulf Trail passes just to the west of this. 3/19/08 8-10 1

Junction Great Gulf/ Madison Gulf Trails
  Poor            Great



 
Parking for the Great Gulf Trail is on the west side of NH 16. This is about 1.5 miles north of the Mt. Washington Auto Road and about 6.5 miles south of Gorham. It is 1.5 miles south of the junction of NH 16 and Pinkham B (Dolly Copp Road) near Dolly Copp Campground. There is a large parking lot here. A White Mountain National Forest parking permit (or equivalent) is required. The Great Gulf Trail crosses the Peabody River on a suspension bridge and in 0.3 miles reaches the junction with the Great Gulf Link Trail. Go left here. The route mostly follows an old road, climbing gradually. The Osgood Trail (See Mile 4.8) goes right 1.8 miles from the parking lot. At 2.7 miles and 950 feet of elevation gain, the AT is reached at the intersection with the Osgood Cutoff Trail. The southbound AT follows the Osgood Cutoff. The northbound AT continues straight ahead on the Great Gulf Trail. The Madison Gulf Trail comes in from the right (north) and the two trails coincide till the West Branch of the Peabody River is crossed on a bridge. The northbound AT follows the Madison Gulf Trail towards Pinkham Notch. Remember that trail north and south and compass north and south are reversed in this area. Total distance to this last intersection is 2.8 miles with about 1000 feet elevation gain. 7/17/06 Ample parking 1

I have recently read that people can park at the Dolly Copp Campground even if they are not camping there, but a White Mountain National Forest parking permit (or equivalent) is required. Entrance to the campground is on Dolly Copp Road a few tenths of a mile wst of NH 16. There is a large sign for the campground at the highway intersection. The Great Gulf Link Trail starts at the south end of the main camp road . which is a dead end. The parking area is on the left. The trail mostly follows an old road to the junction with the Great Gulf Trail. Left will lead to the Great Gulf parking area. Straight ahead leads to the Great Gulf trails (See above). 7/18/06 6-8

The AT makes a huge U turn in the Northern Presidentials. The southbound AT from Pinkham Notch runs north as far as Mt. Madison and Madison Hut, then turns south. Because of this there are several trails that can be accessed from this intersection which meet the AT on the crest of the Presidential ridge. See Miles 7.8, 10.0, 10.4, 11.4, and 13.1. 7/18/06

See Mile 4.1 for directions to the Great Gulf Parking area. Follow the Great Gulf Trail 1.8 miles from the parking area. Here go right on the Osgood Trail. In 0.8 miles this meets the AT. Osgood Campsite is to the right at this intersection. The Osgood Trail continues straight ahead and from here on is the route of the southbound AT. The northbound AT goes left (west) as the Osgood Cutoff Trail. 7/23/06

Osgood Junction
  Poor            Great



 
The Daniel Webster-Scout Trail meets the AT at this junction. I have not taken this trail but have scouted the trailhead. The trail head is in the Dolly Copp Campground 0.9 miles south of the camground entrance. There is a small parking area on the left 0.1 miles further down the campground road. The trailhead is across from the "Riverside" froup of campsites. See Mile 4.8 for more information on the campground. Following information from the AMC "White Mountain Guide" (27th ed.)The Daniel Webster-Scout Trail climbs 3600 feet in 3.5 miles to meet the Osgood Trail (AT). The southbound AT goes right, the northbound goes left. The summit of Mt Madison is 0.6 miles to the right. 7/23/06 4-6

Summit Mt. Madison
  Poor            Great



 
The Watson Path provides an alternate route to the summit of Mt. Madison from the Appalachia Parking area on US 2. See mile 7.8 for details about this parking area. I have never taken the Watson Path so information is from the AMC White Mountain Guide, 27th ed. Be sure to read the rather intimidating discussion of this trail befrore attempting it. Follow the Valley Way 2.4 miles (1900 feet elevation gain) to the junction with the Watson Path. Go left on the Watson Path. Via this route it is another 1.7 miles and 2200 feet elevation gain to meet the Osgood Trail (AT) at the summit of Mt. Madison. 7/24/06

Madison Spring Hut
  Poor            Great




There is an extensive trail system on the north side of the Presidential Range which allows a large number of ways to reach Madison Hut. Only some will be given here. See the AMC White Mountan Guide currently in its 27th edition. I have been on only two of these, so will rely on the guide for much of the information about the others. 7/17/06

The most direct access to the hut from a road is from the Appalachia Parking area. This is on the south side of US 2 about 5 miles west of the more northern of the two intersections of US 2 and NH 16. See attached map. The parking area is indicated by the marker. The Valley Way trail is the easiest and most direct route to the hut from Appalachia. It climbs 3550 feet in 3.8 miles, breaking out into the open only a few hyndred feet before the hut. The southbound AT goes right as the Gulfside Trail. The northbound AT continues straight ahead for a short distance then goes to the left (east) just before the hut. This section is known as the Osgood Trail. 7/17/06 20-25 1
dlcul @ conncoll.edu
Another route from the Appalachia parking area to the hut is via the Airline Trail and the Airline Cutoff. This breaks out above tree line much earlier than the Valley Way so is the more scenic if the weather is good. Heading to the hut, the Airline Trail goes right from the Valley Way trail a few hundred feet south of the parking area. It climbs 3500 feet in 3.5 miles to the junction with the Airline Cutoff which goes left and continues more or less on contour another 0.3 miles to the hut. 7/17/06
dlcul @ conncoll.edu
See Mile 4.1 for directions to the south junction of the Madison Gulf and Great Gulf Trails. This point may be accessed either from the Great Gulf Parking Area or from Pinkham Notch. Another route to Madison Hut is via the Madison Gulf, Parapet and Star Lake Trails. Before taking this route, read the long paragraph of warnings about the difficulty of the upper part of the Madison Gulf Trail in the AMC White Mountain Guide. From the junction at mile 4.1, go north on the combined Madison Gulf and Great Gulf Trails. The Madison Gulf Trail goes left in a short distance. From here on it is a blue-blazed route and not part of the AT. From the Mile 4.1 junction, it climbs 2500 feet in 2.7 miles (850 feet of that in the last 0.7 miles) to reach the Parapet Trail. Go left on this 0.2 miles to the Star Lake Trail. Go right (north) on the Star Lake Trail 0.1 miles to the hut. 7/18/06
dlcul @ conncoll.edu
See Mile 4.1 for directions to the south junction of the Madison Gulf and Great Gulf Trails. This point may be accessed either from the Great Gulf Parking Area or from Pinkham Notch. At the Mile 4.1 intersection, go west on the Great Gulf Trail. After 1.7 miles and 800 feet of elevation gain, go right on the Six Husbands Trail. in another 0.5 miles (250 feet elevation gain), go right on the Buttress Trail. This climbs 1600 feet in 1.9 miles to meet the Star Lake Trail. Follow this trail 0.3 miles north to the hut. Total length from the Mile 4.1 intersection is 3.4 miles. It is a reportedly a longer but easier route than the Madison Gulf Trail. 7/18/06

See mile 7.8 for directions to the Appalchia Parking lot and a description of the Airline Trail as far as the Airline Cutoff. Past the junction with the Airline Cutoff, the Airline Trail continues to climb 350 feet in 0.2 miles to reach the Gulfside Trail (AT). Northbound is left, southbound is right. The Airline continues straight ahead another 0.6 miles and 750 feet of elevation gain to the summit of Mt. Adams. 7/17/06 20-25

Several trails intersect the AT, here called the Gulfside Trail, at this junction. I will only describe access via Lowes Path. Information from AMC White Mountain Guide 27th ed. The trail head is on the south side of US 2 100 yards west of Lowes store. Cars may be parked at the store for a small fee. Lowes Path climbs 4150 feet in 4.4 miles to meet the AT in the saddle between Mt. Adams and Mt. Sam Adams. Southbound is to the right, northbound is to the left. From the junction Lowes Path continues another 0.3 miles, climbing 300 feet over rocks to the summit of Mt. Adams. Ample parking at store

See Mile 4.1 for directions to the south junction of the Madison Gulf and Great Gulf Trails. This point may be accessed either from the Great Gulf Parking Area or from Pinkham Notch. I have never taken this trail. Information from the AMC White Mountain Guide, 27th ed. Follow the Great Gulf and then Six Husbands Trail. At 1.7 miles from the junction of the Great Gulf and Six Husbands Trail, the Edmans Col Cutoff goes right. Footing on this trail is reportedly very rough and rocky. It descends about 100 feet in 0.5 miles to Edmans Col.

Mt. Jefferson Loop (North End)
  Poor            Great



 
See Mile 10.4 for information about parking at the Caps Ridge Trailhead. I have not been to this trailhead since the parking permit system was established, but since it is on National Forest land, I suspect a White Mountain National Forest parking permit (or equivalent) is required. This is a slightly different route than described for mile 10.4. Take the Caps Ridge Trail to the junction with the Mt. Jefferson Loop, and go left (north). The AT is 0.3 miles further (350 foot descent). The junction is shortly before the northbound AT steeply descends to Edmands Col. 7/24/06 10-15

See Mile 4.1 for directions to the south junction of the Madison Gulf and Great Gulf Trails. This point may be accessed either from the Great Gulf Parking Area or from Pinkham Notch. I have never taken this trail. Information from the AMC White Mountain Guide, 27th ed.
At the Mile 4.1 intersection, go west on the Great Gulf Trail. After 1.7 miles and 800 feet of elevation gain, go right on the Six Husbands Trail. This trail described in the White Mountain Guide as steep and very rough but wild and beautiful. climbs 2250 feet in 2.0 miles to meet the Gulfside Trail (AT) on the east side of Mt. Jefferson. Southbound is left, northbound is right. The Sphinx Trail continues to climb to near the summit of Mt. Jefferson. 7/18/06

dlcul @ conncoll.edu
The Six Husbands Trail also provides access to the AT as part of a route from the West Side, albeit one which goes very near the summit of Mt. Jefferson. Most of this route involves the Caps Ridge Trail. The trail head is on Mt. Jefferson Road. From the intersection of the Cog Railway Base Road and US 302 in Fabyan (see mile 16.8) follow the former about 4.5 miles to an intersection. At this intersection the Mt. Clinton Road goes south, the Jefferson Notch Road goes north. Follow the latter road, which is a good gravel road, 3.4 miles to the high point. The parking area is on the right (east) side of the road. At 3000 feet, this is the highest trail head on a public through road in the White Mountains. The Caps Ridge Trail climbs 2000 feet in 2.1 miles to the Cornice Trail then climbs another 700 feet in 0.4 miles, passing very near the summit of Mt. Jefferson and then reaching the Mt. Jefferson Loop Trail. Go left (north) on this 0.1 miles, then go right (east) on the 6 Husbands Trail descending about 300 feet to meet the Gulfside (AT). Southbound is right, northbound is left. Note: The Jefferson Notch Parking area is shown on the satellite view of the attached map. I have not been to this trailhead in a number of years, but I suspect a WMNF parking permit or equivalent is required. 3/19/08 1

See Mile 10.4 for directions to the Caps Ridge Trail parking area. White Mountain National Forest parking permit (or equivalent) probably required. This is a slightly different route than described for mile 10.4. Take the Caps Ridge Trail to the junction with the Mt. Jefferson Loop, and go right (south). The AT is 0.4 miles further (600 foot descent). The junction is on the relatively flat area at the base of Mt. Jefferson known as Monticello Lawn. 7/24/06 10-15

See Mile 10.4 for directions to the Caps Ridge Trail parking area. White Mountain National Forest paarking permit ( or equivalent) probably required. This provides an alternative access via the Caps Ridge Trail that does not involve summiting Mt. Jefferson. Follow the Caps Ridge Trail 2.1 miles to the junction with the Cornice Trail (2000 feet elevation gain). Go right on the Cornice Trail, climbing another 300 feet in 0.5 miles to meet the Gulfside Trail (AT) on Monticello Lawn. 7/24/06 10-15

At the Mile 4.1 intersection, go west on the Great Gulf Trail. After 2.8 miles and 1350 feet of elevation gain, go right on the Sphinx Trail. This trail described in the White Mountain Guide as steep and very rough but wild and beautiful (i.e. a tough trail) climbs 1350 feet in 1.1 miles to meet the Gulfside Trail (AT) just north of the low point in Sphinx Col between Mt. Jefferson and Mt. Clay. Southbound is left, northbound is right. 7/18/06

The trail head for this trail is at the same place as the Amonoosuc Ravine Trail (See Mile 14.8). Access is also possible from the Cog Railway Base Station but the same warning as for the Ammonoosuc Ravine Trail about a possible fee may apply here. This trail starts across the road from the USFS parking lot. The old trail to the Base Station goes right at 1.0 miles. (It is 0.4 miles to the Base Station). The Jewell Trail climbs 2950 feet in 3.7 miles to meet the Gulfside Trail (AT). Southbound to Mt. Washington is to the right, northobund to Madison Hut is to the left. 7/17/06 15-20

See Mile 4.1 for directions to the south junction of the Madison Gulf and Great Gulf Trails. This point may be accessed either from the Great Gulf Parking Area or from Pinkham Notch. I have never taken the Great Gulf Trail further than the Mile 4.1 junction. Information from the AMC White Mountain Guide, 27th ed. At the Mile 4.1 intersection, go west on the Great Gulf Trail. This goes 4.7 miles and climbs 3650 feet. The last section up the headwall is reportedly very steep, climbing 1600 feet in 0.8 miles, much of this over fragments of rock. It meets the Gulfside Trail (AT) near the Cog Railway. Via the southbound AT (which goes left), it is 0.4 miles to the summit of Mt. Washington. 7/18/06

Mt. Washington Summit
  Poor            Great



 
Obviously the easiest access is by car or by cog railway. The Mount Washington Auto Road (toll) leaves NH 16 about 8 miles south of Gorham. It is about 8 miles to the summit. You can drive yourself or the operators of the toll road have vans which they use to drive people to the summit. To reach the base station for the Cog Railway follow US 302 about 4.5 miles east from its junction with US 3 in Twin Mountain. The well-signed road to the Base Station goes left in the small community of Fabyan. Follow this road about 6 miles to its end at the base station. Reservations are strongly recommended for the cog railway. Ample parking both at the summit and at the bases of the Auto Road. Parking might be possible at the Cog Railway base station itself, although the White Mountain Guide warns an admission fee may be charged. Overnight parking is not allowed. Overnight parking is at the USFS lot a half mile west of the base station (See Mile 14.8). The attached map shows the summit area. 7/29/08 1

There are several routes to the summit from Pinkham Notch and the east side of the Presidential Range, but I will only mention the classic one, the Tuckerman Ravine Trail. I have not done this trail so information is mostly from the AMC White Mountain Guide, 27th ed. See mile 0.0 for information on parking at Pinkham Notch. The Tuckerman Ravine Trail starts just west of the Pinkham Notch Visitor Center. It climbs 4250 feet in 4.2 miles to the summit. 7/18/06

Access from the west is via the Ammonoosuc Ravine Trail. The trailhead is at a USFS parking lot on the Base Road to the Cog Railway Depot. (See Mile 13.4 for directions to the Base Station.) The parking lot is 1.1 miles east of the junction with Mt. Clinton Road and about a half mile from the Base Station. A White Mountain National Forest parking permit (or equivalent) is required. Access to the trail from the Cog Railway Base Station is possible. This was the old trailhead. However be aware of the following statement from the AMC White Mountain Guide, 27th ed. Hikers who wish to visit or park at the Base Station itself should expect to pay an admission fee. The USFS parking lot can be seen on the satellite view of the attached map. From there the Ammonoosuc Ravine Trail climbs 2500 feet in 3.1 miles to the hut, with 1500 feet of that climb occuring in the last mile. The junction with the old trail to the Base Station is 1 mile from the parking lot. The Base Station is 0.3 miles to the left. 7/17/06 20-25 1

There are many options to reach the hut from Pinkham Notch and the east side, but the most direct is via the Tuckerman Ravine Trail and the Tuckerman Crossover. See Mile 0.0 for information about Pinkham Notch. See Mile 13.4 for information about the Tuckerman Ravine Trail. Tuckerman Junction is reached at 3.6 miles from Pinkham Notch (3350 feet elevation gain). Follow the Tuckerman Crossover 0.8 miles across open terrain. It climbs about 100 feet then descends about 350 feet to meet the Gulfside Trail (AT) at Mile 14.6 near the Upper Lake of the Clouds. Go left on the southbound AT 0.2 miles to reach the hut. 7/23/06

Edmands Path
  Poor            Great



 
I have not hiked this trail but have scouted the trailhead so information is from the AMC White Mountain Guide, 27th ed. There is a parking lot at the trailhead which is on the east side of Mt. Clinton Road, 2.3 miles north of the intersection with US 302. This intersection is about 8 miles southwest of the intersection of US 302 and US 3 in Twin Mountain. It is about a quarter mile further to the AMC facilities at Crawford Notch. Since the parking area, which is on the east side of Mt. Clinton Road, is on National Forest land, a White Mountain National Forest parking permit (or its equivalent) is required. The parking area can be seen on the satellite view of the attached map. This trail was laid out by J. R. Edmands many years ago. He made great efforts to construct a graded trail with comfortable grades. Much of that still remains. The trail climbs 2750 feet in 3.3 miles to reach the Crawford Path (AT) in the col between Mt. Franklin and Mt. Eisenhower. 7/17/06 12-15 1

Junction Webster Cliffs/ Crawford Path
  Poor            Great




The traditional trailhead for the Crawford Path is across from the AMC facilities at Crawford Notch on US 302. This still exists. Thee is a parking lot for the New Highland Center. While I suspect that this is primarily for visitors to the facility, I saw no signs prohibiting its use for trail parking, even overnight. However the official parking lot for the Crawford Path is on Mt. Clinton Road, a short distance north of the intersection with US 302. This intersection is about 8 miles southwest of the intersection of US 302 and US 3 in Twin Mountain. It is about a quarter mile further to the AMC facilities. . Since this parking area is on National Forest land, a White Mountain National Forest parking permit (or its equivalent) is required. The parking lot can be seen to the west of Mt. Clinton Road in ht upper left part of the satellite view of the attached map. This photo was probably taken the Highland Center was under construction. Parking is now at the north edge of the big open area in the view. The marker indicates the approximate location of the traditional Crawford Path trailhead on US 302. A new spur trail called the Crawford Connector leads 0.4 miles from the parking lot on Mt. Clinton Road to the actual Crawford Path. At the trail intersection, to the right it is 0.2 miles to US 302. To the left, the Crawford Path climbs 2350 feet in 3.1 miles to meet the AT. The southbound AT goes right as the Webster Cliffs Trail reaching the summit of Mt. Pierce in 0.1 miles. From here north to the summit of Mt. Washington, the Crawford Path is part of the AT. 7/23/06 10-15 at Mt. Clinton lot, ample at HighlandCenter 1

Parking for the Webster-Jackson Trail is at the AMC facilities at Crawford Notch on US 302. (See Mile 18.7) I also saw a parking pull over just across from the actual trailhead. The Webster-Jackson Trail starts on the east side of US 302 0.1 mile south of Crawford Deport (the AMC information facility). The route divides at 1.4 miles from US 302. The left branch is the Mount Jackson Branch which continues to meet the AT (here the Webster Cliffs Trail) at the summit of Mt. Jackson.

The intersection noted above is about a mile south of the Willey House Site, now a gift shop/snack shop. There is roadside parking for several cars here, but far better parking is located at the Willey Station Site (not to be confused with the Willey House Site). To reach this parking area follow the road on the west side of the intersection to its end in about 0.3 miles. This is the route of the southbound AT (to Section 4). Walk back down the road to US 302. The northbound AT (to Section 3) crosses the highway here. This section of the AT is known as the Webster Cliffs Trail. 7/17/06 4-5 roadside on US 302. Ample in lot. 1
