Ascent of Mount Jefferson in 1967
|Ascent Type:||Successful Summit Attained|
| Location:||USA-New Hampshire|
| Elevation:||5712 ft / 1741 m|
Ascent Trip ReportGrabbed this peak after second day hiking into the back side of Washington when I was a kid. Mid-day of day 2 (3 day hike) we reached a suitable campsite somewhere just passed intersect of Great Gulf Trail and Six Husbands Trail. After securing camp, we doubled back down Great Gulf Trail to Six Husbands Trail and hiked up Jefferson and back.
Postscript: my childhood hiking log (my first AMC Guide book)"disappeared" while at college. As a result, I've elected to default all my childhood hikes with a date of "1967".
