An excellent trail with stunning views once the trees are cleared. Snow and ice made the trek more challenging then usual.

Boott Spur up, transit to Hermit Lake and Tuckerman Trail down. The Boott Spur is a great trail up, less travelled and good hiking. Definitely a moderate difficulty trail. Once above the alpine be prepared (ie clothing and food) for the wind. The transit down to Hermit Lake is steep and large rocks. You'll be clambering down and definitely rated as hard. We did it with day packs. That all said, some great views of Tuckerman, Wildcat, and the surroundings.

We did this trail after looking for an alternative to Tuckerman's Ravine and Lion's Head trails which we've done many times before and 3 times already this year. So happy to try this trail! Not crowded, excellent trail conditions, great overlooks and many ways to connect to other trails. Highly recommend!

What a nice trail -- well maintained, nicely paced, good rhythm. Tops out to open alpine fields. one of my all-time favorites.

Hiked up Huntington Ravine and down Boott Spurr. The descent was by no means easy at all. Very steep in many sections and about a mile or so longer than descending Tuckermans or Lions Head. That being said, the views are absolutely amazing and a good portion of this descent is above the tree line allowing full view of the summit and tuckermans ravine. Aslo, if you’re looking to escape the Disney Land environment on Tucks then Boott Spurr will put a smile on your face. While descending on a busy Saturday at around 3pm, we crossed paths with about 10 hikers. Very peaceful and quiet once you get down below the ravine headwall as this blocks the noise from the summit which can carry pretty far. 10 miles/7.5 hours. Probably could’ve shaved off about 30 minutes if it wasn’t for the extraordinary views this trail offers.

My map and hike is actually Huntington Ravine. Sorry for the confusion.

After ascending via Tuckerman Pass for Seek the Peak, my hiking partner & I decided to descend on Boot Spur. We weren’t disappointed. Using the Tuckerman Crossover & Davis Path (just follow the signs & the cairns) we settled onto Boot Spur. The trail is fairly well marked. There are a few marshy patches in the last stretch but planks kept us out of the muck. On the day we hiked bugs were not an issue at all. Wet boulders among the trees caused us the most trouble, as we lost our footing several times. Just go slower and exercise caution on them. This is a great trail.

Did this solo a few years ago - meant to avoid the crowds on Tuckerman but ended up completely alone and a bit scared. Great hike but not the best in the Whites.

Very challenging, but incredibly rewarding ascent up Mt Washington. Went up with a group of in good shape, mid 30s friends, and we were all pushing ourselves to finish. First hour is below tree line and immediately grueling. Levels off a bit at tree line and then gets steep and rocky. Last leg of the hike is punishing, but you’re rewarded with some of the best 360 views on the mountain.

I don't know what to say here....we summit-ed via Tuckerman's and descended via Crawford, Davis, Camel and Boott Spur. I hated it. I absolutely hated Boott Spur. My knees were KILLING me and I don't have knee issues and am an experienced hiker. I was honestly brought to tears by the end. It is a VERY long and steep trail, which forces you to do some butt sliding.....but mostly just bigs steps down, over and over. Maybe it's time to get some knee braces :/

New England hiking at its best. This is a long approach to the summit of Mt. Washington. It offers excellent 360 degree views. The trail along the ridge is of course rocky. It took 4 hours to reach the summit. Conditions were ideal. If you have the time and prefer less trail traffic, this is the path to explore.

Very challenging for a couple that are in shape but only occasionally hike. Rocks and boulders the entire way. Took us 5 hrs up (left from the trail head at 9) and 4 hrs down on Tuckerman’s. Took breaks/pictures often and kept a slower pace. Awesome accomplishment, amazing views but we’re still feeling it a couple days later.

Great views, off the beaten path (low traffic compared to Tuckerman' Trail) , a relatively strenuous yet spectacular hike.

My girlfriend and I (33/m and 32/f) hiked this trail today -- Pinkham Notch to Boott Spurr to Davis up to Mt. Washington. We descended via Tuckerman to Lion Head to Tuckerman. The ascent (via this page's trail) was fine. The views are decent. Amongst the best in New England I guess, but it's no Patagonia or Norway, etc. The only reason I gave it a 4 star instead of 5 is because it's mostly just a ton of walking on rocks. It's not an enjoyable hike like what you'd see in non-White Mountain trails. So, that's a partially unfair rating, but partially fair. So, in the grand scheme of hiking, it's not nearly as enjoy as most good trails, because 100% of it involves stepping from big rock to rock (I'd give it a 2 or 3 star rating). However, all of White Mountains is like this, essentially, so given it's a White Mountain trail, it's a great one (I'd give it a 5 star rating). Hard on the knees, due to rocks. Total time up for us: 3 hrs 29 min. Total time down (via Tuckerman / Lion's Head / Tuckerman): 3 hrs.

Views were breathtaking - worth the difficult hike. It took us 5 hours to reach the summit on this trail in late October. We are average level hikers who took many stops for pictures. **Leave early, bring warm layers, prepare for wind speed changes, terrain changes, and pack a flashlight if it gets dark before you finish. Hiking boots are a must bc of terrain** The top of the summit has a cafeteria and restrooms. Many non-hiker visitors here. Also there’s a train that takes you down (to only one side of the mountain where not all parking lots are).

We went from Pinkham Notch to Boott Spur Trail, continued on past the summit onto Davis Path to Crawford Path to Mount Washington, then went down Tuckerman's. 9.2 miles total. It was great to avoid the crowds on Tuckerman's and Boott Spur was amazing - what views! You're completely above treeline for most of it and then after the summit have a nice flat stretch on Davis for a while before Crawford's Path. From there you can see the lines of people trying to get up Lion's Head. All in all highly recommend taking Crawford's because it allows you to travel up Washington's backside, avoiding the unsightly views of an auto road, parking lot and trolley.

great trail, challenging at times. used the boot spur link to get over yo tuckermans. had to use all 4 limbs some. but way better views faster than youd get on another trail and less people.

A beautiful and exciting trail with many challenges. Recommend taking this up to Lakes of the Clouds and then over to Mt. Washington peak and taking Tuckerman Ravine trail down. Had to use all 4 limbs a few times!

Went up through tuckerman ravine and lion's head trails, summited boott spur on the way down and followed boott spur trail ti pinkham notch. This trail is still wet on the last 1.5 miles. A bit more technical way down but worth it.

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!
