Hello everyone,

In late 2009, I'm planning a winter hike of the White Mountains using the Appalachian Trail. This will be my first time on the AT in the area, but I am used to winter camping down in Virginia. My route will basically be from Glencliff to Gorham. I have a few questions that I would like answered.

1)Does the trail actually cross the summit of Mount Washington? Or does it simply pass near the base? The topo maps that I have are confusing on that.

2)I've been reading the Chauvin Guides page on the Presidential Traverse. Are there any other resources that you all recommend?
