    This was my first 4k and it's a heckuva way to start! There was a fair amount of snow on the ground when we hiked it and it was a relatively warm day, so it got a little slippery as the day progressed. Decided to abort when we got to the rock scrambling above the tree line. We'd done rock scrambling before (but not in the Whites) without problem but that first big scramble left you feeling like one slip and you're tumbling on down the mountain. That combined with high wind and slippery snow, which also led to uncertain footing, led us to reluctantly abort.

    The hike was beautiful and manageable, with amazing views, up until the scramble above the tree line, which is not for the faint of heart or on a wet day. Found out later this trail is rated as one of the 25 or so most difficult trails in the Whites. What a way to start! We went big AND went home - a little disappointed but a lot wiser!

    Tough, tough climb. It's a manageable/moderate trail until the last little climb to Bald Knob, which is a tough, technical climb. That part of the trail is highly eroded, so there are lots of roots and rocks in addition to a relatively steep ascent. The most difficult part, by far, is the ascent from Bald Knob to the summit. Like noted in another review, it's almost straight up, few switchbacks. Not all of that ascent is difficult, though - some of it is crazy easy. But the hard parts are very steep and technical. It didn't help that it was in the low to mid 90s when we hiked it! Not a lot of breeze up there! But the accomplishment of making it to the summit (which, btw, had lots of pretty wild flowers on the trail) and the views from Bald Knob, combined with the lack of crowds compared to the Table Rock trail, made it worthwhile. Bring plenty of water and be prepared for a workout! My Strava clocked it at 8 miles exactly, from the office to the summit and back. Took us about 6 hours, but that's with lengthy stops at Bald Knob for snacks and the view.

    This is one of my favorite hikes in the area. It's a relatively easy trail (it's uphill, but nothing too steep or technical) with a great reward at the end. One note - when you get to what you think is the end - the grand vista that looks south, you're not at the pinnacle of the mountain yet. Keep going to your right (east) and you'll wind your way to the actual pinnacle of the mountain where you get an almost 360 degree view (obstructed only to the east by a tree). Sunset/dusk views are incredible. Well worth the hike and effort.

    Scott Moore reviewed Raven Cliff Falls Loop Trail

    This is a great workout with some really pretty views and rest spots. We've hiked it clockwise and counterclockwise, and I'd highly suggest doing it clockwise and getting Dismal Trail out of the way first and doing it downhill. This leaves you with a very tough, technical climb up Naturaland, but you're still toward the beginning of your hike. If you go counterclockwise you're hitting the long climb up Dismal last.

    I suggest hitting the overlook first, then backtracking to Dismal and Naturaland. The Cathedral is beautiful and cool and a nice resting spot, but of course, the main reward is getting to the bridge over Raven Cliff Falls. Further up the trail, after you cross the bridge, there are some great little spots where you can get to other parts of the waterfall - well worth seeing. The hike back from the waterfall clockwise is long but not difficult or very technical at all. Take plenty of water, allow for around 5 hours, and enjoy!
