Mount Washington Professional Review and Guide

"Named in honor of a man who was “first in peace, first in war, and first in the hearts of his countrymen,” Mount Washington’s 6288-foot summit is appropriately first on the list of the highest peaks in New England. Ascended by Darby Field in 1642, 147 years before George was inaugurated as the nation’s president, today the mountain is a popular destination for hikers, auto road drivers, and cog railway riders. Covered by buildings and weather-tracking devices, the oft-swarmed summit can be chaotic; however, the challenging journey to the top of New Hampshire is also awash in raw natural scenery and limitless beauty. While some hikers before you have died from ill-preparedness and nasty storms, choose this hike with care for a glorious day in the White Mountains."
