Mount Washington: Routes to the Summit Map (White Mountains NF, New Hampshire)
A special Backpacker Magazine topo map printed on waterproof, tearproof paper. Includes topographic map data from the USGS and detailed trip information
Rising to 6,288 feet, the White’s mother massif is rightly popular, thanks to unmatched alpine terrain. Though you could drive or train it to the top, don’t. Instead, earn your “I Climbed Mt. Washington” bumper sticker and grab some (relative) solitude on the way up. On the eastern side, opt for the stiff, 4.1-mile Lion Head Trail, which follows the Tuckerman Ravine Trail 2.3 miles before shooting 2,463 feet up a rocky path. You still get nonstop views of the headwall’s steep glacial cirque, but dodge the traffic. Want waterfalls? Head to the mountain’s western slope for the nine-mile round-trip via cascade-filled Ammonoosuc Ravine, which passes Gem Pool and the 600-foot tumble formed by Monroe Brook. Overnighters: Bunk at the AMC’s Lakes of the Clouds Hut. Map includes turn-by-turn hiking directions and in-depth trip planning essentials to help you experience this BACKPACKER PRO adventure.
