Description

Pretty much the whole way up this trail you can see Mt. Washington, which is spectacular on a clear day. You pass by a couple beautiful waterfalls and hike along a crystal clear stream most of the way. If you take this trail, you might as well do Mt. Monroe at the same time because you have to go pretty much right by it.

Overall, its a longer, tricky hike but very deserving of the effort when you reach the top. With views as far as you can see, take in partial views of the Presidential Range, as well as the Mt. Washington hotel.

Flora & Fauna

Not many animals, a few chipmunks here and there, but that's about it.

Descend from Mt Washington's summit on this trail. The trail was well maintained. The sights were spectacular. The trail was steep. It took me long… 2.8mi
