Description

This is a great backpacking overnight with incredible camping along the Dry River by Dry River Falls and Isolation Brook. Some crowds but worthwhile views along the Southern Presidentials. Very few people and even better views along the Montalban and Bemis ridge, especially at Isolation, Stairs, and Crawford.

I actually haven't hiked this trail.this weekend I took the Crawford Path up to Mt. Washington, and my fiancé was going to meet me at the intersection of davis path and isolation trail after breaking off from be at the Mitzfah Hut, taking the Dry River Cutoff to the tent site. unfortunately The Dry River Cutoff was impassable due to a microburst taking out the trail a few years ago. and it turning into a total marshland. when she backtracked to the Hut, the employee advised her to not try and bushwhack through it because it was too dangerous. Just a fair warning.

Strenuous but worthwhile. Includes wilderness solitude and a variety of amazing summit views.
