Guineafowl Adventure Company is guiding a 2-Day / 1-Night Pemi Loop where we will stay in AMC-managed Galehead Hut at night, and hike the entirety of the Pemi Loop over the course of two days!

​The Pemi Loop is known as one of the most beautiful and rigorous hikes in the country, with miles of breathtaking above-treeline ridge hiking, unforgettable views of the White Mountain National Forest and of course the satisfying achievement of summiting ten of New Hampshire’s famous 4,000-footers all in a single adventure!

​This trek is for experienced hikers who want to push their limits and challenge themselves to some serious distance and elevation gain! We have structured the hike so that our first day is our longest, and the distance and difficulty ramps down for the second day, offering more time to relax and explore some spur trails as well in the second day of our journey!

Tentative initerary

Day 1 (10/5/23) : Lincoln Woods to Galehead Hut

Start your day at the famous Lincoln Woods trailhead and cross the suspension bridge over the Pemigewasset River – and you are on your way! This first day spans 16 miles of terrain, where you will summit Mt. Flume, Mt. Liberty, Little Haystack Mountain, Mt. Lincoln, Mt. Lafayette and Mt. Garfield! This is an incredible day of above-treeline hiking as over 3 miles of your time is spent on Franconia Ridge where you’ll enjoy 360 degree views of the entire White Mountain National Forest! Spend the night at the AMC Managed Galehead Hut and get the well-deserved hot dinner, fresh baked dessert and blissful sleep your body will be craving!

Day 2 (10/6/23): Galehead Hut to Lincoln Woods

Today’s hike can span anywhere from 13 to 17 miles depending on how many extra mountains you want to explore! We will leave the AMC Galehead Hut right after breakfast after topping off our hydration and finishing our coffee. From Galehead Hut, there is an optional out-and-back to summit Galehead Mountain, and then it’s on to the toughest climb of the Pemi Loop, the climb up to South Twin Mountain! After summting South Twin, there is an optional 2.6 mile out-and-back to North Twin as well! The final above treeline leg of day 2 ascends Mount Guyot and then makes our way over to one of the best views in the entire White Mountain National Forest – the magnificent view off of Bondcliff! After enjoying Bondcliff, the vast majority of the remaining distance is gradually downhill and flat as we descend below treeline for our last time and cross meandering streams and ultimately follow the old train trusses back to Lincoln Woods. The downhill hiking will be relaxing and the pace on the flat terrain out to Lincoln Woods can be taken as quickly or slowly as your body wants after two intense days of above treeline exploring!
