Mt. Eisenhower
Greenleaf Hut and Franconia Ridge.jpg
A hiker approaching Mt. Eisenhower from Mt. Pierce, March 2011.
Drive 75 miles
Hike 9 miles
Difficulty Strenuous

Mt. Eisenhower is a mountain in the southern Presidential Range, often hiked in combination with Mt. Pierce and Mt. Jackson. The summit provides outstanding views of Mt. Adams and Mt. Washington, as well as the surrounding White Mountains. It makes an excellent winter hike, as it has outstanding views and above-treeline scenery, yet has minimal danger of falling down a ravine and doesn't require an ice axe.

Driving Directions

Take 91 North from Hanover, get onto 93 South near St. Johnsbury. Take exit 40 and get on 302-E. The trailhead will be on your left after about 19 miles (there's a large parking lot with a sign indicating that you're near the Crawford Path). The AMC Highland Center is on the right just past the trailhead and provides a good place to turn around if you miss the trailhead.
