Great short hike with pretty decent views at the top on a clear day. Trail was well packed; used spikes, didn’t need snowshoes.

My first snowshoe hike! It wasn’t as hard as I thought. The closed I’m snowy evergreens made it feel like Lion, Witch, Wardrobe. When I arrived at the top...boom! Amazing view. Made it to top but phone died.

Thanks to all the snow shoers, we were able to make it just with microspikes! Gorgeous hike, beautiful view at the top. Plus our dog loved it ❤️

Pretty cold and had to hike in from the road because Ravine Lodge is closed. We used micro spikes until we switched to snowshoes at the trailhead. Great hike. Too cold to hang out at the summit though.. It was truly stunning.

This trail was beautiful! Nice short hike in the cold and we used sleds to ride down. Trails were nicely packed and the weather cleared up when we got to the top. Would definitely do this again :)

Really enjoyed this hike as an intro to snow hiking in the white mountain. Micro spikes were absolutely necessary. Be prepared with extra layers and freezing temps. Amazing views and fun trail. Looking forward to this hike in warmer temps.

Beautiful hike during winter! The views from the top are phenomenal; some of the best we've seen on the east coast. With several feet of snow, we sledded back down which was incredibly fun. Nice short hike.

did this trail in the fall after a little rain and it was definitely difficult without spikes. trail wasn’t marked well. only continued up to take clarke back down.

Great day today to snowshoe this loop. Did it clockwise. Snowshoes were a must have after the falls. Only one set of snowshoes in front of us so lots of trail breaking. Beautiful views over the top at the look out and coming down. No wind until coming down made it nice. Lots of fun butt sliding and laughing on the steep sections. Ice on the cliffs were huge. Not recommended for beginners.

Snowshoes required!!

One of my fav hikes in the Whites.
I was even lucky to see a moose on the top.
The view from the top is stunning. You should be able to see the presi’s if it’s a clear day.

Great winter hike for hikers of all abilities. However this mountain requires traction (microspikes, Trail crampons) in winter months; without traction, the slopes near the summit would be treacherous (quite a bit of ice). With traction, the whole loop is enjoyable, easy-to-moderate, and can be completed in 2-2.5 hours. Enjoy!

This is a great hike. Lots of others hiking and enjoying the scenery from the top. A few strenuous sections, but overall a pretty consistent challenge.

Easy short hike, pretty in winter time! Be careful with parking though if you drive a smaller car, our car got stuck as did another group’s !

Did this trail in peak fall foliage season and loved it, though no matter how you dice it there will be lots of others with you and I prefer a more solitary hike. Still beautiful views on top !

Great quick hike for a fantastic view. Parking lot is a sheet of ice and trail was slushy. Great hike for beginners or for a pre or post work day.

overall awesome hike with a really cool railroad stretching over a bridge, and stunning rock walls. I gave it 3 stars because there’s only one peak where a clear view is visible, and most of the hike is under the trees. Hiked this on 12/31, snowshoes were not needed but microspikes are a must. In the winter this was a rather difficult and dangerous hike.

Great hike!! Trails are hard packed with ice, traction is a must!. My hillsounds made easy work of the ledges. Some mixed conditions (ice and rock) going up Welch. I did run into a group that turned around because they couldn’t get purchase safely with their traction (yax and katahoulas).
The saddle in between the 2 is packed nicely. Beautiful views!! Will be hiking this again.

I have always LOVED this hike! Great views.

Super gorgeous but extremely popular. It's a quick walk from the parking lot with stairs the whole way. Still, it was gorgeous to see and I got some great pictures of the kids!

The falls were lovely and my son had so much fun sliding on the rocks and getting wet. The problem was rhe popularity of the site. It was insane how many people were coming and going!!

I hiked the trail yesterday. I thought the snow'd made it easy to hike. Definitely worth it, let alone the spectacular view at the summit.

Fun trail great to do with family and friends. Can’t beat the view.

I have hiked this trail during the summer months and this trail in the winter is so smooth and the snow leads to an ease of hiking (no loose rocks to fuse about).
The trail still has plenty of snow on it. Microspikes and Poles worked best today, but I did see hikers with snowshoes (some in hand) and plain hiking boots.
There were some downed tree but easy to navigate around.

Beautiful views at the end of this fairly easy hike. A large portion of the trail though is a sheet of ice. Be sure to wear microspikes and be prepared to slide a bit.

Great hike for those looking for a shorter outing in the Whites. The trail was mostly moderately graded with a few steep sections here and there. The snow was packed out well when we went, so only microspikes and poles were needed. Great views at the top for the effort. It took about 1:10 up and 40 minutes down.
