    This loop earns a five start review because it packs nearly everything you might be looking for in a long, one day hike. Views are simply and utterly spectacular from the ridge on high as you meander and ascend next to extraordinary views of the Franconia Notch region and surrounding NH peaks. The rigorous climb is no easy hike and there are spots where you will be testing your cardio capacity for extended periods of time. If you start on the Falling Waters Trail (my recommendation), you will get wondrous views of waterfalls and wooded areas leading to the larger climb to the top. The descent on the Bridal Path is visually stunning and will beg you to stop to take it in and take some quick shots with your camera or phone. Well worth the efforts and an efficient way to snag some 4K peaks if you're of the peakbagging set.

    The steep, dirt ridden and relatively view-less climb (other than an opening part of the way up) keeps this from being a 4 star climb for me, but the views once near the top are quite breathtaking and worth the hike. The ascent is virtually all up with less than ideal footing which gives way to more rocky sections about halfway up. Probably not a 4K footer I would do again given these views could be taken in on another more rewarding mountain. I will say, however, on no other mountain have I had a beer on tap available or a ride down if you decide to forgo the descent altogether. Get your one way ticket in advance--there's no shame in cruising down after that climb!

    This is no slouch in the elevation department (4800 and change) and the middle third of this trail is very steep and rocky, something to be mindful of if you embark after a rainy period since much of it will be slippery. That said, the going is tough for awhile with very little in the way of "interim" views. But the summit is a site to behold and one of the most interesting of the Whites. With its loping ascension for the last mile or so and its wildgrass blowing in the wind, one feels as if he in a remote plain of Ireland rather than a NH 4K footer. If you can do it, hit the South Peak (2/10 of a mile long and just before the start of the descent on the main trail--it's a hidden gem.
