About this trip

Join us as we hike the 3 Southern Presidential mountains of the White Mountains. We will hit three 4K ft peaks, practice yoga each day, and stay in one of AMC's 100 year old full service huts!

Nestled in a col between two 4,000-foot peaks, Mizpah Spring Hut is just a short distance from the fabled Crawford Path. Visit this lovely spot in the boreal forest, and explore the southern peaks of the Presidential Range. An easy 2.6 miles from the trailhead, Mizpah Spring Hut welcomes all in the summer and fall. 

No tent or camping equipment necessary. The huts offer hikers of all levels a fantastic entry point into backcountry travel. No camping experience required! Bunk bed accommodations allow you to leave your bulky sleeping bag at home. Enjoy in-season home-cooked breakfast and dinner, cold running water and composting or waterless toilets.


We will be hiking an out and back loop. The first day we will summit one peak and stay overnight in Mizpah Spring Hut. The next day we will wake up eat breakfast and summit the remaining two peaks as we complete the loop that will bring us back to our accent down to the parking lot.

Before You Go

This is moderately strenuous retreat that will test your limits while bringing you back in touch with nature. Please be prepared to hike on steep and rocky terrain while carrying a bag with snacks and layers that can weigh between 10-20 pounds. While we encourage hiking novices to sign up, we recommend that you be in good athletic shape and capable of continuous activity for at least four hours at a time. The yoga will be gentle and empowering. No need to hike a yoga mat into the mountains, but I do recommend bringing a towel. This retreat is on rain or shine, so bring your raincoat and pack quick dry (non cotton) materials. 

Gear List:
40+liter Backpack ( I have two for rent)
1.5+ liter containers for water ( hydration pack or water bottles)
Warm Layers ( No Cotton)
Rain Gear
Hiking Boots/Trail Runners ( No sneakers)
Nourishing trail snacks
Head Lamp/ Flash Light

We had an awesome time! Laura and Joel were fantastic guides. I'm new to hiking, but the pace and structure of the trip was perfect! Thanks again! Krissy
Laura and Joel were wonderful trip-leaders. The accommodations at the hut were nice, and the hikes were challenging with beautiful views. I would recommend a Backcountry Yoga trip to anyone.
