Got there at sunrise and forecast said it was going to be sunny today (9/14/20) and it wasn’t. It started raining pretty good right when I started the trail but I’ve hiked in the rain before with no problem. The trail is absolutely beautiful, lots of ominous looking trees and a fun trail to navigate. And the incline was never more than you could handle, it was fairly gradual enough to let you go at a good pace. So I knew the weather was horrible but I was having fun ...... until I ran across a sign at the end of the tree line stating “worst weather in America, many have died here, even in the summer. If weather is bad turn around.” I’ve never seen a sign like that on any other mountain and I think it kinda messed with my head. I was not going to turn around, but I went slow and steady and felt confident, until I hit the base of the summit. The winds were 85mph (which I’ve never experienced before) and my hands were so cold (even with gloves on) I couldn’t unzip my backpack to put on my winter coat. All I could do was hide behind the pillar of rocks for a bit wishing I never went up. The summit was pretty miserable and I left as quickly as I could, but it still gets 5 because I could tell if the weather was friendly, that summit would be incredible. This is a good 4k beginner mountain in my opinion, lots of tight spots though which are fun, but I wouldn’t want to be dodging people on this trail. Go early.

HikingGreat!

Hiked on Sept 9. Beautiful but hazy, 80+ degrees, hardly a cloud in the sky, light breeze. Maybe 24 others on trail. It was great to get to the alpine zone for the first time in 30 years. Gorgeous views of Mt Wash. and other Presidentials. Not a hard climb, about 6 hours climb time. I took the loop trail as shown on AllTrails map. There are a few places where the trail is down to ledge and it's slippery (dust, not water) on the way down. Trail in great shape otherwise. Only bugs I saw were a few grasshoppers, and water crossings were a breeze. BTW, if you lost the outer sole of your boot near the bottom of the trail, I have it!

trail was great, normally it would be nothing too challenging on a good clear day. Pretty flat coming in the a fairly steady incline to the treeline. "Scariest" part would probably be the rock scramble just before the trail split before heading to the summit just out of the treeline. Normally it would be just overcoming your fear of heights but today was windy, wet, some sleet, and a little wild weather. While I was comfortable a couple others in our party were not and decided to turn around and wait at the treeline due to poor weather conditions. Know your limits and when to call it quits and live to hike another day. Nothing wrong with tapping out. My buddy Dan and I scurried to the top, took a vid,and came back down quickly. Path was easy to follow, a little tight squeeze in areas for allowing passing hikers to move on but overall the trail wasn't too busy (probably due to bad weather). I have knee issues on steep or rocky descending trails but this one didn't bother me that bad.

HikingGreat!

Fantastic hike! Our family of moderately experienced hikers had no issues, there were a couple of slippery spots up towards the top. Definitely bring layers for once you get up to the alpine zone, the traverse is windy as advertised.

Edmands path moderate difficulty, mainly because its constant up (ie no switchbacks). Few rock climbing areas near top but not too bad. Both Eisenhower and Monroe initially fogged in, but then...voila...clouds cleared and sun came out. Amazing views all around. Great hike. Crawford path between summits is amazing (when you can see where you are going, ie no fog!:)

Fun hike! Loved walking on Eisenhower Loop in the alpine zone. Was cloudy at the top so the view wasn't great, but was nice to see part of the Presidential Traverse!

HikingGreat!Rocky

This is my all time favorite hike! It starts off fairly level and once you start the ascent it is a pretty consistent grade the remainder of the hike. My only complaint is that this hike ruined all future hikes for me. The views from the top were absolutely incredible. There are few places you will see such an amazing 360 degree view. I will definitely be going back and hope to add another peak next time.

Ah. Maze. Ing. Definitely one of my favorite hikes. Beautiful trail, lots of moss and vegetation along the way which made the trail really interesting. Nice work out and so so gorgeous once above tree line. Next time will add Mt. Monroe loop!

My recording shows 10 miles but that's because I hiked up a mile and a half and had to return the same when my hiking friend had a leg issue and needed to head off trail. So that added 3 miles to my total. But this is a nice quick access to Ike and the Presidentials, only 2.5 hours up (probably a little quicker if I hadn't already hiked 3 miles). I've done this several times before, the last was 2 months ago when there was still 3' of snow on the trail. Trail is typically wet in the mid section but definitely doable. Summit was cool and socked in with clouds and fog but a nice change from the summer heat we've been having.

One of my favorite 4,000 footers. It’s so beautiful even before you get to the summit. 360° views. I would absolutely choose this route as opposed to going up to pierce and then over to Eisenhower. I personally thought this trail was on the moderate side as opposed to being rated as hard.
