Seek the Peak Hike-a-thon


Jul 20, 2018 to Jul 21, 2018
04:00 PM until 07:30 PM


Seek the Peak welcomes hikers of all ages and abilities to Mount Washington and its neighboring peaks and places of interest in the beautiful White Mountains of New Hampshire.

We invite you to participate and to Seek YOUR Peak... While many hikers will choose the challenge of summiting Mount Washington, others will opt for alternative mountain treks. Some may just want to support the Observatory as "virtual hikers," or simply join for the weekend festivities.

Come explore the White Mountain trails, and join us in the festivities including:

  • Friday, July 20
    • Kick-Off Party and Registration at the Weather Discovery Center in North Conway
    • Observatory Weather Station tours on the summit of Mount Washington (both days)
  • Saturday, July 21
    • Synnott Mountain Guides top rope sessions at Square Ledge for all ability levels (10:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m.)
    • An Expo featuring premier sponsors Eastern Mountain Sports, The Weather Ch and The Mount Washington Auto Road with several other vendors showcasing and giving away prizes at base of the Auto Road (2:00-5:00 p.m.)
    • The famous After Party including a massive gear giveaway, & dinner (5:00 p.m.-7:30 p.m.)
    • All while supporting the non-profit Mount Washington Observatory with pledges which in turn will earn you prizes!

Ultimately the weekend is an incredible gathering of like-minded outdoor enthusiasts who have come together to Seek their Peaks in support of Mount Washington Observatory.

Registrants are asked to raise a minimum of $200 as part of their participation; in turn they are awarded with fabulous prizes and more! Be one of the first 500 to raise $200 and earn an Eastern Mountain Sports STP backpack and STP T-shirt.
