    Matt Lizotte reviewed Tuckerman Ravine Trail to Mount Washington

    5 months ago

    7/7/18 left from Pinkham Notch at 7am. The weather was cloudy with rain forecasted so the parking lot was fairly empty. Took Tuckermans Ravine trail but there is a detour from the south end of the parking lot you have to take due a closure at the start of the trail. The detour is a steep ascent out of the gates which gets the heart rate up quick. Rocky ascent up to the lake shelter took about 1.5 hours and then the fun began. We stayed on Tuckermans from there as it is less exposed than Lions head and the weather wasnt looking promising. We almost turned around but we had the right gear so pushed through. From the lake shelter until about .5 miles to go we got poured on and visibility was low. Wind picked up towards the top. Last .5 miles was a mental test. Wind was 50-60mph and visibility was nil. We went from Cairn to Cairn. As you got to a cairn you could barely make out the next one. We moved like this through the wind and and foggy mist until the summit. It took 2:47 moving time according to the app. We decided it wasnt safe to descend so we took the shuttle down. This was a mental accomplishment and Luckily we were prepared with pants, OR Helium 2 rain jackets and multiple layers and a dry bag to keep everything dry. I would not recommend this hike if the forecast is anything but “clear”. We read the next day 2 diff groups of hikers had to be rescued that day due to not being prepared. We saw one of the groups earlier in the day.
