104 miles with 34,000 feet of climbing on the Appalachian Trail between Route 2 in Gorham and Route 25 in Wentworth.

The route is epic. It includes the Moriah, Carter, Wildcat traverse that rolls into a traverse across the Presidential Range, the Pemi, and across Franconia Ridge with a Kinsman Traverse, over Moosilauke and a 1.5 mile section of trail to Route 25. The route takes you through some of the most beautiful and rugged terrain in the White Mountains. It showcases 4 classic traverses and summits 14 4000 footers. You will travel through aesthetically beautiful forests and incredible ridges.  It is a pure test of endurance, physical and mental.  The Appalachian Trail is full of history and it will take you through the toughest section in New Hampshire.  With 34,000 feet of climbing and the rugged terrain it may be one of the most difficult 100 mile adventures in the United States.

Before anyone posts it, no directional variation is needed for this route. Start and finish are basically the same elevation. Going NOBO you get alot of runnable terrain while fresh and then get hammered by northern Presis and Wilcat, Carter, Moriah traverse. Opposite for SOBO. I think SOBO is fastest.
