    Thank you for the info, it is very much appreciated! I read in the White Mountain Guide book that this was a fairly rough trail. It also said it was easy to lose the trail in the areas where it...

    Okay, so just when I thought all of my questions had been answered, I have one more. I hope someone can provide some sound advice.

    I already got a GPX file from someone else's Traverse and plotted it out on CalTopo. CalTopo is a great tool and I was able to do a Terrain Stats graph which showed all the peaks and the total...

    Thanks. I just recalculated the mileage from Valley Way to Nauman and it's 13.3 miles, give or take a few tenths. A long day, I'm sure, with the rough terrain, but getting approximately 1/3 of the...

    Ok. Yes, I remember quite vividly our first and second days on the Pemi loop. Constant up the first day, lots of rocks and an average of 1mph. The second day from Guyout campsite to Galehead Hut...

    Wow! Ok. Well, this is exactly why I was hoping to get some solid information from some local experts. Even books like the White Mountains Guide can't provide this type of information.

    We...

    Thanks. This is good info to know because my buddy and I are coming from Michigan and are not well-acquainted with the fine details of specific trails in the Whites.

    Maybe the better option is to...

    And yes, I plan to avoid trails on the east side that head down into the The Great Gulf. I've read that those trails are steep and rugged and don't lead to anything very quickly. Although, I do...

    Thanks Slo-go'en. Our plan is to get the shuttle on Monday morning, hike up to Madison and start heading south. We have the option of Crag Camp, Gray Knob or The Perch along the way. But depending...

    Thanks for all the info, Peakbagger! I figured I would get a short response from two or three people, but this was like drinking from a firehose. Lots of great info.

    I realized that some people...
  12. Presi Traverse & AMC Highland Parking

    My buddy and I will be doing the Presidential Traverse this August. We are leaving the vehicle at the southern end and taking the AMC shuttle to the Appalachia trailhead.

    My buddy and I are going to hike the Presidential Traverse (Madison to Jackson) in mid-August. We are driving together from Michigan so we'll only have one vehicle. We will need transportation from...

    Thank you for the info. We now have some serious things to contemplate. It seems we have many fewer options than when we attempted the Pemi loop several years ago.

    Thanks for the info. I definitely did know any of that. It looks like we may need to rethink how we plan to do this. Although, this is exactly why I asked the question.

    Ok, so if we don't take our hammocks, then I am guessing there are camping areas for tents? There has to be camp areas because people do this stretch in two or three days which means there is at...

    My buddy and I are going to do a 2-day, 1-night (hopefully) or maybe a 3-day, 2-night (second option) Presidential Traverse in mid-July this year. I am specifically looking for some info on the...
