  • No doubt a large percentage of climbers assume that Mt. Jackson is named for President Andrew Jackson, lying so close to the Presidential Range. However, it is actually named for Charles Thomas Jackson, a New Hampshire geologist in the 19th century.
"My friend, Nora, my Golden, Kali and I left the car on 302 below the lake @ 9:13am and headed up the road to Crawford Path. It was very humid, and even though it was not hot, we were soon sweating like mad. It took us until 11:35 to reach the junction of the Mizpah Cutoff, which was 1.9 mi. We kept going on Crawford to the top of Pierce, which was another 1.2 mi. We stopped just below the summit and took some pictures, and talked to people, then we summited at about 1:00pm and had lunch. At 1:20, we left Mt. Pierce and hiked down the .9 mi to Mizpah Spring Hut, arriving at 2:00. We refilled" - Hufflepuff, Sep 16, 2018
"What a awesome day! Hiked up the Webster Cliff trail to Mount Webster. The views from the Cliff trail were awesome, feels like a high peak ridge walk! Then hiked over to Mount Jackson and enjoyed views of Mount Washington and the rest of the range," - blackwolf_03278, Jun 10, 2018
"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
"Spent the night at the Mizpah Spring Hut after doing Mount Pierce the day before. Followed the Webster Cliff Trail across Mount Jackson to Mount Webster and then down the Webster Cliff Trail all the way to 302." - Hufflepuff, Sep 16, 2017
"Overall, an enjoyable hike up. But after encountering a couple of "death scrambles" near the top, and eating lunch in the middle of a cloud, we opted to down via Mt. Webster. So glad we did! Webster was clear and warm with a glorious view." - gooner, May 27, 2017
