Valley Way Trail ist ein 7.7 Meilen langer, moderat besuchter Hin- und Rückweg in der Nähe von Berlin, 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. Die Route ist am besten von März bis Oktober zugänglich. Hunde sind erlaubt, müssen allerdings an der Leine gehalten werden.

Lower section is a bit icy but good snow above 3000'. Stepped off the trail to let a descending hiker go by a little below Madison Hut and sank in above my knee. Probably 2 feet of snow. Above treeline conditions are very variable from bare ground to ice to snow. Microspikes the whole way bottom to top. A little icey dicey on the summit cone especially on descent, but we took our time and did fine. Could definitely use a fresh dump of snow!

Went up to the hut with loose snow on the trail - please wear snowshoes to help pack it down if you can. From the hut we broke Star Lake trail up to Adams summit which was hard. After getting back to the hut via Airline/GG, we descended Valley Way. Awesome trail that is well travelled, even in winter.

Exhausting but beautiful with backpacking gear after a fresh snowfall

Took this trail both up and down Mount Madison - first time on the mountain and this was perfect. Not too steep, beautiful views, pup loved it. It’s a beautiful, stone staircase right up into the sky :)

Pretty cloudy. And no views even if it wasn’t. Not as step as a previous post suggested. Only last 0.4 was steep.

Took this trail down from the Madison Spring Hut. It was raining. The trail was muddy and the rockets were wet but this was a fun hike. Best way down from the Madison Spring Hut.

This is a very beautiful but difficult rocky trail leading up towards Madison Hut. Everyone in our group was way overpacked (35-40 lb backpacks) which made it extremely agonizing. We made it though & continued to Mt Madison, Mt Adams, and finally to Lakes of the Clouds Hut.

This trail is a pretty typical NH mountain trail, though probably on the rockier, steep side. It climbs 3800 feet in 3.8 miles, which is a pretty hefty elevation gain over a relatively short trail. The trail took us 3.5 hours, hiking moderately and taking breaks when needed. The trail is completely below treeline. Just when you think you can't go on any more, you see the Madison Spring Hut peeking out through the trees and realize that you've made it. It gets 3 stars for me because it's simply a way to get somewhere. On its own, it has very little to recommend its use over any other trail. You're using it to get to Madison Hut or Mount Madison. There are no significant viewpoints and nothing else really interesting about this trail. We did not descend this trail, but suggest that it's quite steep going up and might be a rather painful trail to descend. We also ascended on a rather hot, humid day - it was fairly buggy and did not cool down until after we'd reached treeline and the hut.

Challenging. Plenty of water on the trail. Weather was good today7/27/2019. Tons of people, summits a zoo until you pass Mt Washington.

Three Stars because it was a safer but way lamer way down than the Airline Trail I took up the day before during blue-sky weather. I left the hut in the morning after summiting Madison in clouds/wind/rain. Valley Way was just plain ol' boring compared to Airline. And seemed longer than the 3.8 miles it's billed at. When I hit the sign that said 2.4 mi to Appalachia parking...man what a bummer. Oh and if you hike up here, you're used to black-fly-season and mud-season... but apparently there's a slug-season on this trail. Careful when you reach out for that tree-trunk to catch yourself...SQUASH!

Very rocky, uphill, no switchbacks. I feel this was slightly slower going - although I am from PA with very little elevation. But lots of fun. Before approaching hut area, tented in Valley Way tentsite first day, right below Mt. Madison. So despite torrential downpours all night, stayed dry with nice flat, smooth rockless sites. Easy ready made bear bag area with 2 hang lines made it easy and quick to hang food. A spring for water although refills are available at Madison Hut a mile up the trail.

This trail is no joke and not for beginners. It is the easiest way up to Madison Spring Hut and mount Madison, but that doesn't mean it's easy. The first 2.4 miles were easy but the last 1.4 were incredibly difficult. Do not get excited when you see the sign declaring only 1.4 miles to go; it took us 3 hours from this sign to reach the hut. Wish we had better views as we were cloud socked. Do not attempt this hike if the weather is bad, or if you aren't in shape. This trail is almost entirely below tree line, but is super slippery in the rain. 9 miles in 13ish hours.

Took this trail down from Madison Spring Hut after tackling Jefferson, Adams, and Madison. Trail is below treeline for just about the entire hike, and provides some good shade/relief from the sun. The only downside is that the bugs were quite bad. There was some running water on the trail and a few patches of mud, but otherwise, it was dry. No snow. Saw a few dogs along the way enjoying the trail. The few streams along the route were easy to jump across or rock hop. No significant blowdowns.

my husband and I set out to do the Valley Way trail, not being overly familiar with that area when it comes to hiking. We have spent a significant amount of time hiking in Maine and lakes region of NH. When we came to the sign for Madison or Hawkers we chose Madison as the presidential range is on our hiking bucket list. This was our biggeat hike we have ever done so we learned a lot about being on a trail with multiple terrains. The trail is well marked and groomed, it crosses over beauty Brooks (Brooke Brook being one of them) the cool breeze from melting snow gave us a lovely cool down breeze right before you begin the hardest part of the hike. The hardest part of the hike consist of boulders stacked on boulders, my legs are pretty little so the last 1.5 miles was pretty much hand over foot for me, my husband who has very long legs was able to clear most of the gaps by simply stepping up. This is a trial to be covered up on and covered in sun screen, there is zero coverage as you summit this beautiful peak. The top is rocky with a pin marking the top of Madison. We we're blessed with zero cloud coverage so it was views as far as the eyes could see with beautiful Mt Washington right there. We took the trail to the Mt Madison Hut down to the RT 2 parking lot, it was steeper going down but had many more fresh water Brooks which came in handy when I wanted to splash my face with cool water !

Went up the valley way planning to hike Mt Madison, instead decided to tackle Mt Adams. Mt Adams is a serious mountain for New England but if you’re prepared it’s a great time.
