I would have been quite happy with 500' elevation gain, which isn't so easy to find, so when my AT summary said 600' I was pleasantly surprised! It took 4.5 miles. Perfect place to get some hill runs in.

Walk on this everyday...love it!

I did this hike on July 28th with my wife, daughter (3 years old) and 2 dogs. Pretty muddy due to rain the previous night, but the trails are marked well and an amazing view at the top! The scramble at the top is worth the work! overall a great hike!!

As others have noted, this is actually a 5.2 mile round-trip, not 4.4. It's a small difference, but worth correcting.

Regardless of the distance, it's a very good trail. It's fairly short but decently steep and technical. It was a warm and humid day today, but the trail is largely very shaded, so it wasn't overly hot, despite temperatures in the high 70s or low 80s. Perhaps the thing most worth noting is the top of the trail, which does indeed have quite a scramble. It's very do-able, just something to be aware of. Once you get up, there are tremendous 360 degree views, which are well worth the effort.

Be sure not to miss the waterfall just off the Webster-Jackson split, 1.2 miles in. We found it on the way back, and it was a great way to cool off near the end of the hike. The water was more than a little frigid, but it's a pretty little and a lovely little pool. It's definitely worth the detour.

Rocky Woods is a wonderful, quiet spot to enjoy nature - and that on the edge of a heavily settled area. I’ve explored these trails many, many times and always find it restorative.

Very rocky and lots of roots. The view at the top is well worth the climb though!

Nice trail! Mt. Clinton Rd is still closed though. I parked off the road not far from the road closure sign and walked from there. Not sure if that is allowed though. The bridge over the Abenaki Brook was dislodged and moved. It was hard to cross brook without getting feet soaked.

Trail was okay... there is a lot of paved road, but the smaller trails off the main road are nice. Also some cool Geocache spots if you’re into that!

It was cool to see all the bunkers but the bugs were literally out of control. I would recommend going when some bugs have died for the season...

My Eisenhower was terrific. However Mt Clinton road and parking area is still closed. Adds round trip of 5 additional flat miles The summit was misty and high 60’s. Edmands trail was in good shape, a little wet, and one of three footbridges was unusable. Lots of wildflowers.

This hike has it all, including class IV scrambling near the top to finish off the hike before the spectacular views of Crawford Notch, Mt. Pierce and Mt. Washington at the top. Did this hike with my wife, 3 kids (11, 8, 6) and dog.

A little confusing at first, but had a great time exploring with our dog. Being so close to where we live in Newton, we’ll definitely be back!

Great place for an easy, moderate, or small-tougher hikes. Easy to get to from 128, and lots of parking at the park enterance off Totten pond road. Don't forget to pick up the very useful trail map at the park entrance. Trail heads are well marked but the rest of the trail isn't. We did a lot of the easier trails on the Western side of the park and a short difficult trail which was a series of steps cut into stone but which was still enjoyable. Large parts of the park is accessible by car. There are plenty of picnic tables and shelters through out the park. We also saw restrooms deep in the park. A gem of a place so close to the city!

Views of the city are nice. Lots of uphill and downhill sections at varying levels of difficulty make for a great workout spot. However, the trails lack markings and general order.

Incredibly difficult hike for this out of shape 41 year old, but well worth it.

A good set of trails. Glad I found these, I really liked these woods. They have a nice mix of hemlock and deciduous trees with lots of birds out and about, great place to enjoy the sights and sounds of nature. The part of the trail that goes around the pond is currently very overgrown, you can avoid this by following the red blazed instead of the blue. I would also recommend turning this into a loop hike if you’re looking for something longer.

I was unable to do this trail because I didn’t understand the parking.... there is not a designated parking area, you just park in front of peoples houses. Not really a marked trail opening. With no other cars around, I felt weird just parking and walking down a random trail. I would like to find where people are parking to experience the trail.

From the perspective of a flatlander Bostonian who hasn't done much hiking, this is NOT a moderate level trail. I've hiked Monadnock, of which every trail is rated hard by this app, and this route makes those look like Boston's tiny Blue Hills in comparison. I would definitely rate this trail as hard if I could. The experience, though, was awesome. The app says it's a 4.4 mile route, but it's really 5.2 miles, 2.6 each way. It's a challenging and very rocky hike, but the views are absolutely amazing. The wind at the summit is refreshing, along with a couple of fast and frigid streams running along the path. This hike is a rock-filled grind, but it's worth it in my opinion. Again, the views from the top are breathtaking. Also, bring some trail mix and take out some peanuts or raisins at the summit to feed its resident Gray Jays, which will land on your hand and take the food. For me, that was the most memorable part of this hike.

My husband and I hiked this on our honeymoon the Summer of 2017 and really enjoyed it. Well marked trail and beautiful views. Toward summit there’s a few pretty steep parts that made me a little nervous but we managed just fine. It was my first 4000 footer and now I’m forever hooked on climbing bigger mountains - the reward on summit is well worth the climb! Happy trails!

As of today, Mt. Clinton Rd. was still closed, adding 2.6 miles total to the hike (1.3 each way). The work done by J. Rayner Edmands on this trail in 1909 is still very much in evidence. This is a very family-friendly way to get up to Crawford Path and the Mt. Eisenhower Loop. There are a couple minor rock scrambles before you get above treeline, but nothing even small children can't handle. Currently, there is no snow or ice left, and the trail has had a lot of work recently, so there are no obstructions.

The beavers were out today, first I've ever seen the whole family together. The Mom and Pop and the two little ones were foraging on lily pads. They were fun to watch, they were right in front of me munching on the pads. The little guys whimpered a bit too, I've never heard that before (sounded like a baby, somewhat). I've been running in here for 20 years or so and this is only the 2nd time I've seen the beavers out, the last time 3 years ago. It's clear they're here you just don't see them much. Soooo coooool.

this was my first 4,000 footer! very well marked and well maintained trail. I packed spikes and winter attire but all the snow/ice was melted and it was warm with a breeze at the top! the view from the summit was worth every effort. be warned that there is a steep rocky scramble to get to the summit that may be hard for small children and pets. (our medium sized pup had no problem but she is very nimble) I think this was the perfect 4K to start our journey! the grey jays will land on your hand!

*edit - the entire journey is 5.2 miles, 2.6 each way - not 4.4 like it says above*

absoultely have never been but i love the pictures

did this with my sister a year back and loved it. one of my first 4k and the grey Jay's at the top made it all the more enjoyable! (the ate the m&m's out of my trail mix! oops! hahah they know what they like I guess ha!!)
my first big rock slab and looking back I would do so it again. overall a easy hike with a amazing view. it's a small 4k xo beginner peeps would enjoy this!

The two towers are the highlights but it's still worth getting lost trying to go around the lake (skyline)

Did this as part of a loop including Ammonoosuc Ravine trail->Monroe Loop->Crawford Path->Edmands Path. We ascended Ammonoosuc and descended via Edmands Path. Probably about 10 miles.

BEWARE - If you do the above loop and park at Ammonoosuc Ravine trailhead, know that Mt Clinton Rd is closed even in late May. Plan accordingly. We had to walk 2.3 miles back up to Ammonoosuc trailhead where we parked - not that big of a deal but after a long day you will want to be prepared for that.

Edmands has a couple of very nice flat sections especially as you are at treeline close to Crawford Path intersection. Didn't see any other hikers (because Mt Clinton Rd was closed). Lot's of snow near the top still on the trails. There looks like what I would call tornado ruins, or possibly a downburst, that flattened a huge section of the trees about midway on the path. The path has been cleared but it's very interesting to see.

Came here for a quick hike and some Yoga. Not the best slice of nature because you're so close to the road. You can here all the cars, but great wildlife. Saw a snake and some beautiful birds!
