Annual Trail Sign Auction
Every year AMC’s White Mountain Trail Crew replaces weathered or out-of-date trail signs with new ones. The old signs are collector’s items, having guided thousands of visitors for many years along celebrated paths throughout the Whites.
Pine Link (Painted)
The Pine Link Trail to Mount Madison is a favorite of day hikers and folks attempting a traverse of the famed Presidental Range. This painted trail sign is the perfect decoration for anyone with a special place in their heart for the high peaks of the White Mountains.
22 x 11 x 1.5 – Previously posted above tree line on Mt Madison at the junction with Watson Path
Pine Link 2 (No Paint)
From above the treeline to above your fireplace! The Pine Link Trail is a direct route to Mount Madison, one of the famed Presidential Peaks. This trail sign stood near the summit, where it endured some of the toughest weather conditions in the northeast. One of two Pine Link trail signs up for auction, this one features a “no paint” look.
