    Any fellow inmates have a good route or portions of routes I could string together to get to Mt Washington from Philadelphia?

    I'd prefer to find as much off-road as possible.

    Thanks!

    I would go through the Adirondacks, and cross into Vermont on one of the 4 ferries or two bridges across Lake Champlain,
    I don't get to Vermont or New Hamphires often enough to have a preference, but any road with "Gap" in it is worth looking at.

    This would get you to Vermont with a much dirt as possible,

    This looks like exactly what I want!
    Can't view on my phone, how do I see the mileage for the route?

    You can see mileage if you go to "download track" track button and download the corresponding kml file with the _1.kml prefix and look at it in Google earth's elevation profile, for example the UDCATDAK1000 is 1276 miles http://www.advcatskills.org/Maps/Tracks/AdvTours/UDCatDak1000_1.kml

    the FromPhilly leg is something like 106 miles.
