Great hike last week. The waterfall was very full. Beautiful to see early spring. The trail was a little muddy but easy.

I found another lincoln woods trail , longest 2.8 of relentless hiking ( monorail, my toes are going to fall off , not marked well

Trail was busy, and a few mud spots, but the trail is completely clear of ice, so no need for microspikes. Wildflowers at 2400 ft were a nice bonus, no bugs to speak of, very few hikers wearing masks, but everyone doing their best to social distance. We did the loop clockwise, and were happy we had brought trekking poles for the last 1000 feet down to the river: steep, wet leaves, loose soil, and tired legs are a good recipe for taking a fall.

Cool waterfall. Quick hike

Just Mt Crawford for us today! Highly recommended grind! Steep! But once you hit the multiple rock face openings/false summits... it’s worth it!

pleasant hike with some cool highlights : the train bridge near the parking lot, the view from frankenstain cliff (the only scenic point on the entire trail that is otherwise shaded by forest), brim and arethusa falls. if you are doing the loop counter cw then bear in mind the ascent is VERY steep in some parts - not suitable for young children, the elderly and some dogs. I recommend taking the short detours to both waterfalls (powerful and impressive) but not to falcon cliff (similar view as Frankenstein but more obstructed)

Hiked all 3 peaks on Friday. Nice and dry up to Crawford, and then stretches of fairly deep snow up to Resolution and Stairs. Snowshoes highly recommended, but be prepared to take them on, off, on, off, repeat, repeat, repeat. I'd probably wait a few weeks for the snow to clear. Great hike.

Tough going on Saturday, just above Mount Crawford trail turned to snow. Post holed all the way to summit ledge. Some dicey brook crossings with water running under the snow pack. Would recommend waiting for snow to melt down unless you bring snowshoes. Still 2-3 feet of snow in places.

May 2020- hike out to the falls was quick and worth it! The hike to the summit was very steep with multiple feet of snow about a mile in. Must have crampons or spikes. Very steep towards the top, we ended up sliding down parts of it on the snow. There were also very little trail markers, although footprints helped lead the way. Would recommend bringing snow pants and a rope to help you get down!

Great hike. Ripley falls was roaring with the recent melt. As we continued on spikes were needed to complete second half of hike up to the Willey summit. Vertical inclines were covered in snow/ice making for a challenging hike down with large melt towards the lower half creating very wet and muddy conditions. Despite the challenges this was a great hike with minimal, but decent outlooks. The ladders were almost 100% thawed out but still had some areas that required additional cautions to be taken. Overall a good time in the whites as always!

Hike it yesterday w/ friends. 6 hour round trip including Ripley Falls. Micro spikes a must and poles if you have them. Very steep, with ice for the final 1,000 ft vertical. Especially above the stairs. Need to careful this time of year as snow pack is prone for post holing into the stream underneath.

The trail was heavily trafficked today. It was muddy all through the way and icy at the end of the trail, but not that bad. The scenic view of Arethusa was totally worth the steep hike! (May be grab some tea and snacks when you go and enjoy the view)

The view of the artheusa falls was spectacular but the place was heavily trafficked. It was muddy almost half of the way, a but icy towards the Artheusa falls though, almost slipped a couple of times. We didn’t climb up to the frankienstein cliff because The trail to the falls itself is an hour or so and it started to get more crowded as the day went by. Overall the hike was challenging but scenic, steep to straight trail, small brooks to cross, and the woods. Loved it! 5 stars when we reach the frankenstein cliff.
