Love hiking in the fall. Great place to hike and spend a few hours.
did this one in 2014, well indicated and ama hut to visit, what a beautiful day !
Gorgeous views with tons of trail options and a nice hut.
It's a butt buster going up! Great workout, nice reward at the end. Well traveled so you can safely hike alone.
Very pleasant climb with a tranquil lake at the end. Includes a camp house you can spend the night
Amazing hike. Tough climb up but definitely worth it for the views.
Correction- AMC hut :-)
Clear trail, great cardio, peaceful and no more than an hour up to gorgeous views! I took a left at the top to stop by the AT hut & pics along the way..if i had more time I would have loved to do some of the passed side trails.
Moderate trail with a serene reward at the end. Been hiking the White's for 35 years - one of my favorites. Great views of the surrounding peaks, a great swim in the lake, and the hut staff are always amazing!!
I loved this hike. I was at the trailhead at 9.25am on sunday 8/21. It was very less crowded. I hiked alone. As other mentioned, this hike was moderate because of the rocks. You need sturdy shoes. The lake was amazing. The AMC hut was cozy and you can get a nice coffee there after the hike.
