I hiked the Presidential Range often in the early 80''s before moving to Virginia. I missed the beauty and cooler temps of this region, so I brought my Boy Scouts here to experience what I missed seeing for so long. The Great Gulf Trail will give you a decent hike with breath-taking views of the mountains around you and the gurgling sound of the river as it flows over waterfalls and rapids. There is plenty of water around, but filter or boil it first to be safe. There is just enough ruggedness to make the trail interesting too! If you wish for more excitement, just take one of the side trails like the Sphinx or the Six Husbands, that will lead you to the top of the ridge near Mount Jefferson and on to the AT. The Six Husbands boasts vertical climbs on anchored ladders as well as a few caves to explore and feel like Indiana Jones!
