Hiking the White Mountains

Hiking the White Mountains

A steady climb to the top of a prominent 4,000-footer on a historic trail. Path on a high alpine shoulder of Mount Eisenhower. In the early 1800s, when the Presidential Range was first explored, there were more peaks than American presidents. Mount Eisenhower was unnamed for many years,
then it was known as Mount Pleasant, Mount Prospect, Pleasant Dome, and Dome Mountain, depending on the mapmaker.

It did not get its current name until 1972, three years after Dwight D. Eisenhower died.If your goal is to reach the summit of Mount Eisenhower, the historic Edmands Path (blue blazes) is the preferred route. Originally a bridle path, it is considered one of the most well-constructed trails in the White Mountains, climbing at a relatively even pitch despite the rugged terrain to accommodate horses, though today it is
strictly a footpath.
