Only a couple hour hike in from the Pinkham Notch Visitors center with great falls along the way if you're not too busy looking at your feet. I see more people miss the Crystal Cascade only 10 minutes up the trail that its rather comical....More

Stunning views Talk about going in over our heads. Awesome trail, but getting to the summit of Mt Washington this way, for beginners, not in the greatest shape, not advisable. I have nothing negative to say about this trail. There are more rocks, than bare...More

This was our first visit to the White Mountains of New Hampshire. Taking the Tuckerman's ravine trail was our preference because of it's relatively short distance, great vistas and a bit of a challenge. It took us 4 hrs 45 min to get to the...More

This is the shortest ascent of Mt. Washington from its eastern flanks. On good weather days, the trail becomes a parade of hikers going up and down, so be prepared to pause as people pass you. I went with a small group bound for the...More

We were exploring the area around Rt. 16 in NH for some hiking trails and came across Pinkham Notch where Tuckerman’s Ravine is located. The area was having some wild weather at the time – in the upper 40s in early June and super windy,...More

The Tuckerman's Ravine trail is a tough, short hike. We climbed this to the Hermit Lake shelters where we camped for the night. Hauling a 40 lb backpack makes it that much tougher, but I noticed several backpackers outpacing me by a good margin. The...More
