Great hike with two 4,000 footers in Eisenhower and Jackson. The time walking along the ridge mostly above tree line offers great views. It definitely felt busier the closer we got to Eisenhower but was never too bad.

Used spikes the hole trip and had no difficulty. The deepest part of the gorge is closed off but there are cute covered bridges that make the trip worth seeing. Trail was easily navigated

Gorgeous hike but definitely need traction especially near the bluff.

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 ❤️

Easily the best effort-to-payoff experience we've had. We went during winter so we didn't have to pay and there were not a lot of other people around. The park is not maintained during the winter, so the snow on the paths isn't shoveled and there are no rangers patrolling. Be careful on the wooden paths as these can get very slippery.

Snowshoes required!!

Up and Back via Crawford Path measured 9.4 in the winter, on my GPS.

The trail was in super good condition for hiking, almost like a snow-packed sidewalk. Its a long gradual, moderate incline. Approaching views get better, then you hit Pierce. The world gets small, everything looks amazing, and its time to drop into the alpine trees for 1.1 miles and zig-zag up the side of Eisenhower.

View from Eisenhower are fantastic. They will energize you for the inevitable climb down. This is one of my favorite hikes.

really nice 37°day, brought a lot with us preparing for quite a hike. it was really fun and nice to get out. definatley going back, the top is just beautiful.

I've been herw many times. Gorgeous things to see. Lots of people and heavily maintained.

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 main falls were good but the REAL treat came with the small groups of falls that we found when we followed the river up. What a great day!!

I brought 2- 8 year old boys on this hike on the 1st day of summer vacation. It was a lot of work for them but well worth it. What a great day!!

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.

Great short family hike with amazing views and water attractions on the route. Best value hike in the white mountains.

I wouldn’t quite call this a hike, but it is quite simply one of my favorite places in the state of Connecticut, if not my favorite place. You feel completely removed, and might run into a few people at most. This is a fantastic place for cross country skiing and snowshoeing as well. Dogs are totally not allowed, but we bring Henley anyway, because she loves it.

Great hike! A little dicey this time of year without good footwear bc of all the ice on the ground. But all in all it was quick and easy with great views.

Parked in the cannon parking lot and hiked the loop counterclockwise. The way up to the viewpoint was not nearly as icey as the way down.

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.

The road to the trailhead was closed and so required an additional climb to get to the trailhead. The trail is in good shape and the snow is well packed although there are some icy areas and at one point we had to do some rock hopping over a shallow stream. We didn’t see anybody else on the trail. The waterfall is gorgeous and icy this time of year. Highly recommended quick hike.

Water crossings are not frozen. Be prepared. Otherwise fantastic hike.

The Crawford path from the lot to the top of Pierce is an steady moderate grade with little variation. There isn't much along the way but we did see a sign for a waterfall (we did go as we were trying to make good time to have time to summit Washington.) From the top of Pierce to Eisenhower you dip back below tree line for a bit and have a chance to fuel up and change gear if necessary. The ascent up Eisenhower is gradual and wasn't technical. However, it's important to note we did this December 16th so it was completely snow covered. Crampons were necessary. We had planned on summiting Washington but by the time we made it to Franklin th winds were sustained in the 60mph range with some strong gusts. We were forced to turn back. The path to cut around Eisenhower was drifted over and not usable so we went back over Eisenhower and back the way we came. Overall the hike was great. The views are unreal. If you can get to the top of Pierce for sunrise you are in for a real treat.

I've done this loop twice now, and it is so enjoyable. Very pretty all the way around as well! Today we didn't see another person until we got back to the parking lot. Peaceful. I'll be back again!

Great short hike for the view! Takes about an hour or less to get to the summit. The snow was packed and very easy to walk on, no need for snow shoes or spikes. Our dog loved running freely and as always, all the hikers we met were super nice :)

So much to see, and explore. Definitely an amazing crystal clear pond, lots of little streams, and some really cool geological features. Great for kids. I can't wait to go back in the summer.

What a fun little hike in the White Mountains! At the top, it’s pretty windy, but the view is gorgeous and there are a bunch of spots you can look out at. On the way up, there’s a small waterfall which was really pretty to see. No need for hiking boots if it’s not muddy. Perfectly fine in sneakers! If you’re looking for a good hike with a gorgeous view in the White Mountains, this is the place to be!

We’ve explored a lot of New Hampshire these last few years, but I have to say, today was probably my absolute favorite hike. I love winter hiking even more than spring, summer or fall. What I took in with my senses today I will cherish forever. BTW...super short hike with multiple viewing spots. Bald mountain summit was a bit scary, but Artist Bluff a piece of cake. Tyler didn’t make it all the way up. But, with a lot of determination I did!! Yay!! (We both have tremendous fear of heights).
