Great trail. It's still pretty snowy on top. in some places waist deep or higher. unfortunately I turned around before hitting the sumit due to snow.

Summited Mt Pierce via the crawford path. Slow steady climb not to difficult i would personally rate it moderate. Followed a river initially with small pools and waterfalls. Very green and mossy for most of the way up. Stunning views of southern and northern presidential's along with Mount Washington! Worth the hike!!

We did this hike to see what the Presidential trial is all about. Not too difficult steady climb up to the Mizpah AMC hut where you can get snack (bring cash), instant coffee and refill water. Staff was cleaning down the place to close for the season. From the hut, a short stretch of steep climb to Mt Pierce where we got clear view of Mt Washington. On the way down we met a guy working on water diversion maintenance on the trail. Overall a great hike on an unusually warm fall day.

I really enjoyed this trail..everyone was so friendly and there was a cabin at the top of the mountain to rest, eat and also have bathrooms. This took my boyfriend and I 4 1/2 hrs I am sore! It was a little tough but I feel accomplished :)

Hiked into Mizpah Springs Hut via Crawford Connector Trailhead on 8/5/2017. The weather was overcast with light rain as we departed the trailhead before 9 AM and the canopy provided a good deal of protection from the rain which was falling. The trail is well marked and maintained and we made the hut in about 2.5 hours. By lunch time, the weather deteriorated so we hunkered down for a couple hours before going out from the hut to Mount Jackson. Read on!

Highway to the whites! Hiked about five years ago in July. Definitely harder then we thought but our seven year old did it!

I solo hiked to the aresthusa fall and looped back around the Frankenstein cliffs. It's easy to lose the trail going down the Frankenstein cliff trail. It was a challenging but very rewarding hike!! It seems to be a popular trail so you will certainly run into other hikers.

Great trail. Good physical challenge with lots of climbing. Definitely need to have some climbing/scrambling skills to summit, so probably not really for beginners. Great views from the summit.

I would give this a higher grade if it wasn't so wet. It felt like we were hiking a river bed with lots of running water and slippery rocks. And MUD! Nice Gibbs Falls though!

This is a beautiful area with great trails. They have alot to offer as in terrane, views, and wildlife. I did find that the trail markers were not the most informative or reliable for other hikers. When I went, there was a fair amount of fellow hikers on these trails and a common theme with all was that they didnt realize how hard the trail was or how long it really took to complete. I feel that if the park placed a little bit more info along the trailheads and parking lots, the average/amature hiker would be more informed. But other than that, its Beautiful!
