Madison and Adams via King Ravine - Advanced

Needs a location

Details

Join me on a hike to two four-thousand footers in the Presidential Range. We will ascend by way of King ravine and The Subway. It is one of the most scenic trails in the Whites and definitely one of my favorites.
We will summit Adams first then over by the Madison hut and mt. Madison. We will come back down the Air Line trail. Mileage is 11.18 and there will be 5,403 feet of elevation gain.

We start as a group, hike as a group, and finish as a group. Our pace will be that of the slowest hiker. This trip isn't for you if you are faster than the group and don't want to stay with us, if you want to head off on your own, or if you are slower than the group and expect us to constantly wait for you.

Guests are not permitted - all participants must be members of the Random Group of Hikers.
Dogs are not permitted on this hike
