Classic glacial bowl, sweeping 2000 foot cliffs, skiers Trail has a very consistent steady rise and is nice and wide. This is a highly traveled trail year round. Thousands of skiers descend on the ravine each spring to catch the last of the snow and to party. Mount Washington can be a dangerous place simply because the weather can change in a minute and the heights are so accessible. Over 125 people have died on Mount Washington because they have not been properly prepared or not properly cautious. There is a list at the cabin describing each name, date and cause of death. Some people hike up with their sleds and slide down the ski trail. The trail follows a brook and water is available if you have a filter. There is a lovely waterfall near the start of the trail. There is a cabin and outhouse at the top. They are not heated.

Loved the on 8/19. Beautiful weather until the last 1/2 mile. Clouds filtered in and out once at the summit. First 3 miles are moderate to hard. The last mile is difficult and strenuous. This has to be the most populated trail up MW, but worth it!

Took me about 5 and a half hours to go up Washington and back down. When you get to about the two mile mark you got some great views of the mountain and some waterfalls. Only downside is I wasn't able to take pictures at the top. The summit was unforgiving, about 60 mph winds on and off rain and zero visibility. Have to go again on a clear day.

Did Tuckerman to the top on 8/21/16, beautiful views and waterfalls! Last mile visibility was bad and really windy at the top! Took us 4 hrs with our 5 3/4, 9 and 10 year olds with us who have done some hikes to prepare for this, loved it but last 1/2 mile for hard for them. Ended up taking a shuttle down bc of the winds (50-60mph!)

Best hike of my life. Incredible views up. Summit was very cold, windy and foggy but such an accomplishment. We took lion head trail down and the skies cleared and the views were magnificent.

If you're hiking Mt. Washington, definitely take tukerman ravine. This trail offered some of the best views in the white mountains. Hiker beware, the weather changes dramatically on Mt. Washington, so come prepared for anything!

Took Tuckermans to Huntington Ravine trail to the summit and back down Tuckermans all the way. I agree with previous reviews, that last mile up looks awful. If you like scrambling (almost rock climbing, really) then take Huntington up. A little shine gets wiped away when you're near the summit and you hear cars and trains though.

Incredible!!! I took Tuckerman's Ravine up and back in about 6 hours round trip. The reviewer who said the last mile is the hardest was right, it's brutal but worth every step! The views here are amazing...waterfalls, streams, wildflowers. It's one of the dreamiest hikes I've ever been on

Challenging yet beautiful trail. The last mile or so was the most difficult part.

This is a beautiful, well travelled trail. Once you get above the tree line - beware! Very challenging boulder ascent to the peak. It seems to go on and on! Descend this are VERY slowly.

Amazing! Took Tuckermans trail to lion head to the summit of mt. Washington. We had our 6yr old and 8yr old who did it with us. Took us 3hrs and 45mins to get to the summit! Rocky but amazing views. Bring a warmer layer for the top!
