Friends of Tuckerman Ravine seeks to preserve and protect the historic
recreational uses of Tuckerman Ravine and Mount Washington NH working in partnership with the US Forest Service.

 

        


Accomplishments

Our most recent major accomplishment (with many thanks to former Congressman Jeb Bradley)  is the foot bridge that allows hikers to park in over-flow lots along N.H. Route 16 and reach the Pinkham Notch "Joe Dodge" AMC lodge and trailheads without walking (or parking) on the highway.

Other Major Accomplishments include:

  • Thanks to an appeal to Senator John Sununu, federal funds were allocated for new radios and a telephone link between Hermit Lake Shelter and Pinkham Notch providing continued reliable avalanche forecasting and rescue communication!

  • Thanks to another appeal, this time to Senator Judd Gregg, funding was secured to drill a well that provides year round potable water at Hermit Lake.

  • Thanks to a $5000 gift from the Nelson Gildersleeve Memorial Fund, Tuckerman First Aid caches were replenished with essential supplies and equipment.

  • Thanks to our volunteers a maintenance program for the Sherburne and Gulf of the Slides Ski Trails has been implemented.
