A great hike when time is limited. The views from both peaks are impressive, encompassing Mt. Washington, the southern Presidential Range peaks, and Crawford's Notch. The climb is steep in places and strewn with granite but it is in New Hampshire after all. There is a pleasant waterfall with an enticing pool of water at it's base along the Webster Trail.

Still socked in with snow knee-deep and even thigh-deep in places between Jackson and the Crawford path if you decide to traverse in that direction. It made for a great 9-mile loop to go up the Crawford path, take a right at the junction before the shelter and then traverse over to the Jackson-Webster trail. Impressive views from Jackson, and a technical and muddy descent. The top of the trail descending from the summit seems to fall right off a cliff, I had to look around for it a little bit. Gorgeous climb. WEAR BOOTS.

Ran into a lot of snow and ice, despite 50+ degree temps., so it ended up being a long day. My lack of training over the winter didn’t help the cause either, but well worth the effort. Great views up top.

I didn't do the traditional loop on this trail. We hiked to Mount Jackson then to Pierce. From Pierce we decided to go to Eisenhower. We recorded it. It was a decent amount of miles. The trails were well maintained. Difficult in some parts but manageable. We did take more frequent breaks because of the almost 11 miles, we wanted to preserve ourselves. Would definitely hike Eisenhower again, hopefully there wont be field trips of kids taking up a good portion of the summit. Hot and humid day barely any breeze even on Eisenhower which was very odd.
