View Full Version : Input for first time hike in May

03-08-2010, 11:27 PM
A friend and I are looking to hike the Presidential Range in late May. We've decided to challenge ourselves on the east coast mountains as most of our hiking has been through the provincial parks in Ontario, Canada. This would be our first trip bagging some peaks above our 500 footers. :D

We're planning to be in the area for 4 days with probably 3 planned for hiking. Basically I'm looking for any suggestions to help us plan a challenging trip but also taking into account the respect required for this range. So any inside tips to prepare and plan would be greatly appreciated. (Gear, routes, must sees, must dos etc...)
