An excellent hike if you want to see lots of mount Washington without spending much time in the trees. The views are spectacular, the terrain is rugged. Mt. Washington has some of the worst recorded weather on the planet. It can change very quickly so be prepared. Tuckerman's ravine is always impressive. If you are scared of heights then do not attempt to drive up the auto road. It is narrow.

I did the auto road in September so my father could enjoy the view. It was as expected cold and extremely windy but to be that high was great. Since it's a visitor's center don't expect to be all mountains and views. Also LOTS of people.
