Summary

  • This is about a 9 mile round trip hike using the Ammonoosuc Ravine Trail (Ammo trail) with an elevation gain of about 4000 feet..  The trail is generally level for the first 2 miles at which time you arrive at the Gem Pool. The trail then becomes very steep to Lake of The Clouds Hut.  The summit of Mt. Washington is less than 1.5 miles from the Hut.  We will have lunch at the Hut or on the summit depending on weather conditions.  We will descend via the Jewell Trail.  If the weather is too windy, we will not hike beyond the Hut.  (Please note this hike wiil be on Sunday.)
  • This trail is usually packed so all we'll probably need is traction, i.e., Micro Spikes/ Crampons. Bring hand warmers for your gloves. Wear winter-insulated boots on your feet, warm socks, dress in layers [no cotton], gloves [mittens are best], warm hat and headlamp/flashlight. Some guys like to have a scarf/neck gaiter to keep their neck warm, gaiters for their boots to keep snow off their boots, ski poles and small thermos for something hot to drink. Bring water, lunch and snacks.  A trail conditions/weather update will be sent out a few days before the hike.
  • After the hike, hikers are invited to my house in Sugar Hill, NH for a apres-hike get-together.  Call for directions.
  • Hikers are welcome to stay over at my house near Franconia Notch, NH for the weekend.

Directions To Trailhead Parking Lot

We will meet at the National Forest Hiker parking lot (Trailhead for Ammo trail) or can carpool from my house near Franconia, NH.  Please email me if you need more specific directions.
