Fun trail with great views on the way to the summit of Mt Washington
It was beautiful and the views were great . You have to make sure you descend early as it gets dark quickly under the brush before reaching the bottom . I would do it again .
Hiked up tuckermans and took this back down along with David's trail. The area where it intersects with tuckermans is extremely steep and rocky. Wouldn't recommend it for dogs. We took our German Shepard who is very active and fit and we had to pick her up at some points going down. Otherwise it has spectacular views and is a great hike!
Me and my friend did boott spur up and down on May 12th. It took a solid ten hours up and down with stoping for breaks to eat. There is some ice going up but can be avoided walking the tree line. I would recommend having crampons still. It was a beautiful day at the summit almost 50 degrees. The lodge was closed and the train was getting repaired so there was barley anyone at the summit. Just take your time have plenty of food and water and enjoy!
A challenging day hike with spectacular views of Tuckermans Ravine, Wildcat and Mt Washington.

We hiked up the Glen Boulder trail and found a spot to camp near a spring on day 1 after about 4 hours of hiking. Set up camp on the snow and got up early on day 2 to head to the peak of washington. We never made it close, and had to turn down the boots spur trail after 2 more hours of intense weather, including gusts of wind up to 80mph. THis was mid May. I look forward to taking a more direct route to the top on a day trip. Would not camp here again, or go at this time of year, at least on the boots spur/ glen boulder trail, as we were trudging through 2+ feet of snow in spots, and forced to slide down certain spots due to ice. This trip would be fine with better weather, better timing, and more experience!
Descended on this trail from the summit side of Tucks after crossing the headwall. Amazing views, picturesque terrain. Was glad we decided to down this way after missing the Huntington Ravine trail and electing to ascend via the Lions Head, turned out to be.a fantastic loop.
Love it! Good old-timey hiking: seldom used, rough terrain, close foliage, occasional stunning views... The path less traveled.
