About the Hike:
This hike brings you to Mount Pierce and Mount Eisenhower – both summits are 4000-footers. They offer fantastic views, and are part of the Presidential Range. The ridge walk between the two peaks is spectacular.
The trail to Mount Pierce and Mount Eisenhower gains over 3,000 feet of elevation in about 5 miles.
We'll begin on the Crawford Connector Trail for 0.4 miles crossing over the Gibbs Brook foot bridge to the Crawford Path (part of the AT). We'll take a side venture to view Gibbs Falls (about 40 yards off the path). At the MIzpah Cutoff will bear right and stay on the Crawford Path. As we approach Mt. Pierce will take the Webster Cliff Trail for 0.1 mile to reach the summit of Mt. Pierce. We will then rejoin the Crawford Path on our way to Eisenhower. After approximately 1.2 miles we will take the Eisenhower Loop for 0,4 miles to the summit of Eisenhower.
Hike Type: out and back
Estimated Elevation Gain: 3000
