Unobstructed views of the Presidential Peaks from Mount Jackson’s barren summit! This will be a loop hike over Mount Webster and Jackson with rock scrambles along the way. We will also visit Bugle Cliff along the way. The hike has several spots that require both hands and feet in order to climb up big rocks. The ridge walk from Webster to Jackson gains about 350 feet of elevation spread over 1.4 miles.
ROUTE: Webster Jackson trail, Webster Cliff trail and back onto Webster Jackson trail.
STATS: Approx. 6.5 miles; Elevation gain: 2550 feet
We will be hiking in winter conditions at a moderate pace with time to enjoy the scenery. There will be ice and snow. Light tracking devices are mandatory and we may need snowshoes if there was a recent snowstorm. Light traction can be either Kahtoola MicroSpikes or Hillsounds Crampons that can purchased from your local outdoor outfitter such as REI or EMS; or online. If you don’t own a pair of snowshoes, you can always rent them from your local outdoor gear shop.
Please have the appropriate gear/clothing to hike this time of year and the appropriate amount of layers to keep your core body warm. We recommend WINTER hiking boots, MicroSpikes, wool hat, gloves, hand warmers, rain/wind gear, warm layers, HEADLAMP and NO COTTON. Carry at least 2 liters of water, lunch and snacks.
Event Coordinators: Mike Boisvert and Jon Normand
