This year, a few days prior to STP '12 we're thinking of a 3day-2night N/S hike over the Whites staying at Madison and Lakes huts. One party member @ 70 yrs. young is having a knee replaced in two weeks. If his Dr. says ok, he'll join us. I'm not familiar with any of the trails coming from the north. I never refer to any trails in the Whites as easy, but I'm looking for suggestions for a good trail to get us to Madison hut. Any info would be appreciated. Thanks, G.G.G.
