Hike the Traverse
The high-flying transect of the Presidential Range should be on every hiker’s short list. Much of the 24-mile (39-kilometer) route cruises above timberline in the tundra zone, tagging 11 peaks along the way, including Mount Washington. On clear days, expect views that can stretch from the Atlantic Ocean into Canada."
