My friends and i are hoping to complete the presidential traverse, in our case Mt. Madison to Mt. Pierce (about 20 miles), this summer. we hope to complete this hike in one day, starting at 4:30 and ending at around sundown. we have all hiked Mt. Washington before but we dont do much hiking on a regular basis, however we are cross-country runners and in great shape and seniors in high school, all of us are 18. i am just wondering if it is possible for us to do this hike in one day. Also, any suggestions that anyone with a little more experience has to offer about this hike would be great.
