Troop 175 Again Conquers the Presidential Traverse

Hiking the Presidential Traverse Trail, in New Hampshire’s White Mountain National Forest, is a bucket list item for many hikers.  It consists of the highest peaks of the White Mountains (with the summit of Washington being the highest peak) named after various former presidents and prominent public figures from the 18th and 19th century. It’s a 19-mile trek that including 13 mountains.

The scouts and adult leaders of Simsbury’s Troop 175 and 1175 do this hike in a single day, starting at 3am and finishing in the early evening.
