Nelson Crag Trail ist ein 6.4 Meilen langer, moderat besuchter Hin- und Rückweg in der Nähe von Gorham, New Hampshire. Er führt durch schönen Wald, vorbei an herrlichen Aussichtspunkten und es gibt schöne Wildblumen und oftmals Wildtiere zu sehen. Aufgrund der Steigung und Distanz ist die Strecke als schwierig einzustufen. Hier kann hervorragend gewandert und ein Ausflug in die Natur unternommen werden. Hunde sind erlaubt, müssen allerdings an der Leine gehalten werden.

The trail is iconic for a reason. It is challenging and the views are breathtaking. We went up Tuckerman ravine and came down the Nelson Craig Trail for a total of 9.8 miles. My advice is to be experienced or be in shape and with someone that is experienced, stay well hydrated and pack for emergencies as the weather changes quickly.

Started at the hairpin turn on the dirt section, where the N.C. trail touches the road. Great hike. Difficulty is extreme in some sections, just a step down from Class 5 rock climbing.

We used the Auto Road to start at the Huntington Ravine trail at 5700 ft, which connects immediately with the Nelson Crag trail. As others have already commented, the top section of this trail is almost entirely loose rocks, so the going was slow and a fair amount of time was spent trying to decide exactly the best route through the rocks. However, it was in the 60s with no wind and 100 mile visibility, so who cares if it was much slower than a usual hike -- it was well worth it for the views! Although I don't use trekking poles for my "normal" hikes, I was very glad I had them for this one. The summit was somewhat busy, but not too crowded considering the near perfect weather. And ice cold drinks at the top are a bonus. It was also a unique experience to cross the cog railroad tracks on foot, avoiding the trains which were arriving and leaving from the summit. We saw just a couple of people on the trail. There are parking lots on both sides of the road at the starting location, and most people stay just a short time and then leave, so parking was easy. This hike was just about 600 vertical feet and just under a mile each way, doable in an afternoon, even with a very slow pace.

I used the Mount Washington Auto road toll road (website), parked, and hiked the upper part of Nelson Crag trail, from the trailhead where it first meets the toll road (4800'). For parking, in addition to the two pullouts just above and below, there was a rocky flat right in front of the trailhead sign that was a perfect SUV parking pad. The hike was 3.9 miles with 1,627' elevation gain. It was a perfect, warm-to-hot, near-windless day throughout, with a great forecast. But, it was still comforting to know I had a shell, down vest, wool hat, and gloves in the backpack! Visibility was poor at 11 miles, I was told due to smoke from Canadian forest fires that had been swept up in the jet stream. The first part is steep and requires some scrambling. After that it's a rocky hike the rest of the way. There was literally ONE step on the whole trail that was dusty dirt, with someone's bootprint in the middle of it. It was significantly more work than a longer, taller hike I'd done two days prior, due to all of the rock-hopping. I was thinking it would definitely be... unpleasant... to be stuck in wind and clouds on this trail, trying to pick my way back down with time running out late in the day. So, yeah, not for inexperienced hikers. The three other hikers I saw on the trail all had trekking poles. At times I was enveloped in a stubborn cloud of non-biting flies, but eventually I managed to ignore them and enjoy a snack sitting on a ledge. There were so few mosquitos I skipped the DEET and got just a couple bites as souvenirs. It was fun to do a climb in parallel with all the car, train and shuttle riders, and then meet up with heavily laden backpackers from other trails at the top. A good vibe even though the top is quite "developed." The views and the alpine flora were terrific!

Took this trail down after hiking Tuckerman Ravin Trail to the top of Washington and across the Alpine Gardens. We thought it would be a nice quiet low traveled route and we were right. It was a beautiful day and views were endless. Some real steep narrow sections that challenge you. Well worth the time 10.5 miles

I completed this trail in part of a loop last fall. Started at Pinkham Notch...Took Lionshead trail up Mt.Washington and down Nelson Craig-->Old Jackson Road-->Pinkham Notch. Really enjoyed the challenge of the granite scrabble...A little steep at parts, but also some nice open meandering sections...Really beautiful route in foliage season (& good weather!)
