Very fun trail and amazing views. Gets pretty darn steep and can be quite slippery. Summit climb gets pretty rocky and fun. Incredible change in climates from base to summit. Goes from rain forest to tundra

A great trail with gorgeous views! Definitely a challenge (my sister didn't love it as much as I did) because some parts require scrambling up sheer rock. You'll need to to use both hands to climb certain parts. I recommend strong knees for this trail. It follows the river all the way up to the Lake of the Clouds hut where you can use the bathroom and refill water before continuing to the summit.

I did this guided hike late in the winter. The views were almost nonexistent, except for a brief instant the clouds broke and we could see the summit as we were just entering the alpine zone. It's a completely different world when the wind gets howling and the visibility is about 10 yards. It has the feel of a much larger mountain due to the notoriously bad weather in the Whites. Crampons were a must, along with trekking poles. We had ice axes but did not need them on this particular day.

Got on the trail around 7:30. A little wet and slippery but not too bad. Easy start with a steep incline in the middle. Once you get past the Lakes in the Clouds hut it becomes just a fun trek to the summit over rock rubble. Got to the top in 2.5 hours. Cold and windy at the top, glad I brought a sweatshirt. Great views along the way and at the summit.

Great scenic trail. a little steep in spots but certainly doable for anyone in good shape. could be tricky if wet, but not too bad. Actually did up to lotc hut then over to mount monroe then over Franklin , up Eisenhower then back down Edmands. hitchhiked back to car. a great hike and highly recommended if u already did Washington as a standalone.

Great trail. Nice and easy walk the first mile or so then up and up! Beautiful cascades and water falls all the way up till lakes of the clouds. One of my favorite hikes now.

6.9? From the USFS parking lot it is 9miles round trip. 3.1 to AMC cabin, and another 1.4 to the summit of Mount Washington. otherwise, great hike.

Hiked this last year (2016) in early June. One of the best hikes I've ever been on. Lots of beautiful waterfalls and scenic overlooks.
