Very nice hike. Trail is a bit confusing and under marked. Stayed our first night about a 1/2 mile up on left AFTER the suspension bridge. 2nd night we stayed at the #3 Dry River Hut. 3rd day we followed dry river up to lake in the clouds and took Crawford path, then took Eisenhower down to another campsite on the Dry River trail.

A little over 20 miles. Bring a map and altimeter.

Excellent views. We were underdressed for the weather on the summit. It was incredibly windy, but definitely worth it.

This is a beautiful hike. We completed it on a let summer day in September 2013. It took us 4 hours and 35 min. With about 20 min. at the peak. It was a moderate hike but started easy with a flat trail with few obstacles, crossing three small bridges. Then you travel on forest trails with some elevation, and wet rocks to maneuver. About a mile from the top is a pretty little waterfall that crosses the trail and a little past there you start to see beautiful views. The last half mile has kerns that keep you on the path to the peak. You can see both Mt. Washington Hotel and Mt. Washington from Eisenhower peak.
