Mount Jefferson, Adams, and Madison Trail is a 10.2 mile out and back trail located near Randolph, New Hampshire that features a great forest setting. The trail is rated as difficult and primarily used for hiking and nature trips. Dogs are also able to use this trail but must be kept on leash. Three massive Presidential Range peaks in one epic climb. This is the shortest and easiest way to climb all 3 major Northern Presidential Peaks in a day. The Caps Ridge Trail up Mt. Jefferson is steep, and requires a few scrambles over ledges on the way up that have some exposure so it is not for the feint of heart. This 2.5 mile trail will put you up onto the top of Jefferson and onto the ridge which you will follow above treeline all the way to Madison and Back. This entire route is above treeline so make sure the weather is good before continuing. You'll reach Mt. Jefferson (5,715'), Mt. Adams (5,798'), and Mt. Madison 5,363'). You will have the option of jogging over to the top of Mt. Quincy Adams if you'd like too as well as the opportunity to check out a famous AMC hut nestled between the peaks.
