Highlights

  • This New Hampshire 4000 footer lies in the southern section of the Presidential Range and is fittingly named after President Dwight Eisenhower. Its original name was Mount Pleasant.
  • The Appalachian Trail (via Crawford Path) crosses near the summit of Eisenhower; a summit loop trail heads to the top.
  • Mt. Eisenhower's summit provides 360° views of the rest of the Presidentials and many other 4000ers in the White Mountains.
  • Often combined with the other Presidential Range 4000-foot peaks in a one-day Presidential Traverse (aka Presi Traverse)
"Southern Presi loop with Roger...Up to Eisenhower....underestimated the amount of fresh snow...we decided to try a trail new to us and then headed across pierce and to jackson. We had to break trail up to Eisenhower and from the hut to Jackson. A gorgeous day with warmer temps and just a little wind." - shay-shay, Apr 11, 2018
"For Doug's NH48W finish. Had to do some trail breaking after Pierce. Wind was brutal on top of Eisenhower. We couldn't stay. Had to get out of there. We opted to not hike Pierce." - newenglandwarrior, Mar 18, 2018
"After Pierce, I went up and did Eisenhower. It was chilly and I was socked in. Didn't stay to long. There were pockets of ice I had to deal with when coming down the summit cone. Saw 3 other people on the summit that came in from the other side. " - newenglandwarrior, Oct 27, 2017
"We took Edmands Path from Mt Clinton Road. It was a warm and sunny day and the trail was very pretty. Met quite a few people on the trail both on the way up and on the way back down. It was my 2 3/4 time doing this one, but was Nora's first summit. The views were great and the weather was perfect. Breezy and cool at the top." - DoggiePaws, Aug 1, 2017
"Crawford Path to Mizpah Hut back on the Crawford Path to Mount Pierce. Then onto to Eisenhower. Descent down Edmands Path Trail to Mt. Clinton Road. Additional 2.3 miles walk down road back to my car parked on Rte. 302. Great day, very clear views. Total round trip loop around 11 miles." - dmcosker, Jul 30, 2017
