Summary

Spectacular scenery and steep, rugged climbing with a few difficult scrambles! We will hike up and back on the Webster Cliff Trail [Appalachian Trail] to reach the summit of Mt. Webster [3,901']. Magnificent views from the Webster Cliff Trail and excellent views from the summit of Mt. Webster. It's 6.3 miles round trip, 2,700' elevation gain and AMC booktime is 5 hours ~ 7 hours estimated for our group.

Don't forget to bring wind/rain shell, water, lunch, snacks, bug repellent, suncreen, etc. along with whatever you typically have for a hiking excursion. We’ll have lunch on at the summit. We will see wildflowers in bloom!

Being July 4th weekend, we'll hand out US flags to stick out of our packs to display our patriotic spirit! 

After The Hike: Everyone is welcome back at our house in Waterville Valley for a swim in the Mad River, socialize around the deck and enjoy a BBQ! It's BYOB and it costs $10 per person.

Lodging Option: Bunk beds are available at our house near Waterville Valley, NH for Friday and Saturday night for $25 per night with proof of vaccination; plus $10 for Saturday BBQ. Coffee/bagels each morning and linen/blankets/towels are provided. Limited to four so email us ASAP to reserve a bunk!

Directions To Trailhead Parking Lot

Take I-93 North to exit 35, take US 3 north, make a right onto US 302 [traffic light], drive past Mt. Washington Hotel, AMC Highland Center and Depot Station and shortly thereafter park on the right [the trailhead is across the street]. We are driving a blue Toyota Tacoma. 

Unless the weather changes for the better, we are changing our approach using the Webster-Jackson Trail that provides more protection than our original route. The trailhead is past the AMC Highland Center and Depot Station off Route 302 on the right. We will be driving a blue Toyota Tacoma Truck.
