    Madison Summit Team has been communicating via email & in person since many of us work together. We’ve narrowed down the route options but will likely not make a final decision until a few days prior. When we do I’ll post that route choice.

    Pretty sure it will be an early start ? 6am since most routes are 4+ hours book time & our group is mixed in hiking experience. We’ll want to have plenty of time to get up there without a forced march. Plus we’re hoping to get our flags up early & go on walkabout to Adams

    Most likely we will choose one of these routes:

    1.The Pine Link Trail, which ascends Mt. Madison from the highest point of the Pinkham B (Dolly Copp) Rd.

    2.Daniel Webster-Scout Trail, which begins on the main campground road, 0.9 mi. south of the Dolly Copp Campground entrance on the Pinkham B (Dolly
    Copp) Rd., on the left in another 0.1 mi.

    Both are about 4 miles, +4000 ft of elevation gain, 4 hours book time.

    We will meet @6am, divide up gear, and head out no later than 6:30am.

    We hope to be up top by 1030 or 11am; It’s our hope to have our flag up flying within 30 minutes, hold our brief ceremony immediately, then head out to Adams for lunch!

    If anybody else is planning to join us please give us a shout or txt.
