When I went with a friend it was raining hard and there was a lot of fog, but it was still incredibly fun. The view from the top was stunning especially with the fog around the mountains. I highly recommend this hike, rain or shine.

You know you found a great hike when each group arriving at the top and first sees the view exclaims "holy shit!". It was slippery today because of the rain yesterday so we took our time. Great workout, beautiful view & perfect day!

this is one of those hikes you want to keep secret but you can't because it's so fantastic. always try to turn people on to it. great views.

it was beautiful, the hike was a little steep and wet because it had just rained but the view was so worth it.

ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! For a Saturday around 11 am, it was not too crowded (think we were smart to go the weekend before memorial day weekend) I feel like this is a hidden gem within the White Mountains. The hike itself is quite easy, steadily incline the whole way. Mostly a rock path. Cool waterfall early on. Not much to look at on way up, but once you reach the top.... BREATHTAKING. We spent an hour just sitting at the top. Truly spectacular.
