In its 24th year, the purpose of Mount Washington Observatory’s Seek the Peak is to raise funds that sustain our forecasting, research, and educational programs. You’re invited! 

  • Fundraise: Register as an individual or part of a team. Share your personal fundraising page with friends, family, and colleagues asking for support of your hike and the Observatory’s work. You make it possible for us to provide hikers with weather forecasts in the White Mountains. 
  • Hike: Whether you participate as a team or individual, plan to summit Mount Washington, hike other White Mountain vistas, or seek your own peak near home, rallying your supporters to donate in honor of your hiking challenge makes you a part of Seek the Peak.   
  • Celebrate: After your hike, gather with fellow participants and MWOBS supporters at our Après Hike Expo on Saturday, July 20 from 4:00-7:00 PM at Great Glen Trails. Enjoy live music, family-style dinner with Hart’s Turkey Farm, beer garden, and epic gear raffle. See the full schedule.

Again this year, you can join hikers of similar ability level with the Hike and Make Friends option. Select this option when you register. Our events team will ensure complete communication so all know when and where to meet.


This option groups up to four participants of similar ability level to complete a hike of their choosing. For this option, you’ll need to hike on July 20 and meet at the registration area at Pinkham Notch Visitor Center at the designated registration time. By selecting “Hike and Make Friends,” participants agree to share their email address with up to three other participants to coordinate a hiking route beforehand. Participants may choose to do any hike and are advised to chat with a trail steward, MWOBS volunteer, or AMC staff member upon arrival at Pinkham Notch to assess trail conditions and review their selected route.

Hiking is better, together!  

All Hike and Make Friends participants should check in at the MWOBS Seek the Peak registration area at Pinkham Notch on July 20 at the following times: 

Gentle Breeze hikers: 7:00 a.m.

Near Gale hikers: 7:15 a.m.

Hurricane Force Hikers: 7:30 a.m.
