Mountains in the Presidential Range are named for U.S. presidents, with the tallest mountain (Mt. Washington) named for the first president, the second tallest (Mt. Adams) for the second president, and so on. However due to a surveying error, Mt. Monroe, named after the fifth President, James Monroe, is actually 22 feet (6.7 m) taller than Mt. Madison.
There are many hiking trails on Mount Madison. A stretch of the Appalachian Trail traverses just below its summit on the Osgood Trail. The Madison Spring Hut, maintained by the Appalachian Mountain Club, is nestled between Mount Madison and Mount Adams and provides rustic lodging in the summer. Reservations generally need to be made far in advance.
Mount Madison is the northernmost mountain in the Presidential Range. Like most of the mountains of the Presidential Range, the summit of Mount Madison is above treeline. Due to high winds and low temperatures, hypothermia is a danger even in the summer.
