Hike Mt. Cardigan - Moderate

We'll be hiking to the rocky summit of Mt. Cardigan which offers amazing 360 degree views. Starting at the AMC’s Cardigan Lodge, hike west up the Holt/Manning Trails. Take the Holt Trail to “Grand Junction” above the wooden bridge, then take the Holt-Clark Cutoff Trail through the Cathedral Forest (now mostly blown-down) to the Clark Trail. Follow the Clark Trail to the open summit. There is a firetower at the top of Mt. Cardigan. To complete the loop, we'll take the Mowglis Trail down off the main summit and north across the semi-open ridge to the peak of Firescrew. Descend and return via the (sometimes steep) Manning Trail. Total trail distance is about 5 ½ miles.

Difficulty: Moderate

Total Elevation: 3,155 ft

Total Mileage: Little over 5.5 miles

Total Time: Approx. 4.5 hours depending on pace and amount of breaks.

What to Bring:
