Decent hike, however, the views on the summit aren’t that great. I have heard that there are other viewpoints near the top.

Well Marked Trail, Took Red Trail up & down there are views that peek out to you as you wind up this beautiful trail. Fire Tower at the top offers great views with a map of each range north south east & west. Used micro-spikes for traction.

gets the heart pumping! the snow was nice and packed down for most of the way until you near the top - definitely recommend crampons! it was steeper in the beginning and throughout the middle but levels off towards the top. doable for any level hiker if you take breaks! our puppy did great! well marked! beautiful view - would love to hike again in the warmer weather.

Good hike, definitely has some very tough points at times but great views once you reach the top!

Awesome views once your at the top of A Peak but its a tough hike heading up to D Peak that can take alot out of you.

It’s a very unique hike, and easy as well but there are NO summit views which is a real bummer but its a good easy hike!

Fairly easy hike with some pretty cool views of Mt. Washington!

Not as tough as I thought it would be and the views are more amazing when you hike it rather then drive up it i feel because you have that sense of accomplishment to go along with it!

This hike some of the coolest views once you about half way up and again once your at the top, but the trail near the bottom is kind of crappy and washed out so be careful with that but overall really good hike!

I didn’t start this one to early afternoon so i knew i had to move if i didn’t want this to be a full night decent, but when i go to the top it was one of the most amazing sunsets i’ve ever seen, definitely worth the wait if you don’t mind hiking down in the dark!

Great hike! I got rained on hard out of no where on my way to the summit of lincoln, then as I’m coming down from lafayette I watched another storm pour on the same spot I was at earlier but miss me, it was so awesome to see and be that close to a storm but not get hit!

Great hike if you are looking for easy one with great views.

Nice walk in the woods. Trail marked well. Not much in the way of views but peaceful with babbling brook and rushing river. Winding path with some rolling terrain, challenging enough to be a workout when cutting the trail with snowshoes.

Fantastic trail, especially for those just starting out.

Another great day. Worth the hike to the Panorama Pub.

You really want to wear crampons at the very least, but I actually would have done this in snowshoes. Loved it

Great trail! mostly flat, offers a few great views of the lake just a small walk off the trail. Great for the dogs and any level of hiker. Trails are decently marked, but I refered to the app a few times to make sure I was on the right path. From the parking lot walk to the right, go left at the road, walk 20 feet, turn left at the trail gate, everything is easy to see. Fun trail, took 3 hours taking our sweet time.

Was a nice easy trek. It was very beautiful.

Nice hike, interesting boulders at the beginning, great views of Willard Pond and beyond from two overlooks.

Excellent hike with some great views, however, the trail was far more technical and challenging than I expected. I would highly recommend snowshoes and hiking poles. I snowshoed clockwise and the first half was moderate so I would recommend doing in and out on that side if you want an easier hike plus it follows along a brook which is nice. If your up for the challenge than the whole loop is excellent, just make sure your prepared.

Pretty steep, although fairly short. The views are great, especially from Bald Mountain. Artist’s Bluff might be unsettling to those with a fear of heights.

Moderate for most of it, then steep and rocky at the very end. However, it is very short, and the views are great, especially considering the effort required.

Moderate hike with cool boulders and great views.

Took left at the fork and did Avalon and Fields first and then swung around and did Tom. The A-Z trail leading down from Tom is tricky in that the trail is covered by snow drift and it being next to a steep slope doesn't help - watch your footing. Else it's super fun and a easy 6 hour hike. No views worth talking about - it was snowing. Snowshoes only, microspikes kept ice balling up making them useless.

Also be ready to shed layers - I changed into just a base layer and a raincoat (snowing) because the trail is steep on the way up and you WILL sweat and get wet from the inside if you don't take care. Pit zips on jackets sure help.

Go up Avalon and Fields because these are more steep and then go down the A-Z trail (very small stretches of steep trails). For those inclined to get down on your butt and slide, this is going to be super fun since it presents plenty of opportunities to do so. Let the kid in you out and slide down - you won't regret it. :)

Pretty icy. A beautiful hike. After moving from AZ this was quite a change for me. Trust in the God of Crampons (lol) and keep going. It was 30mph winds on the peak and quite cold. Make sure you watch your footing when you hit the rocks near the summit. Those are slippery, else this was a straightforward hike and it's impossible to stray off path.

Beautiful Easy Winter Snowshoeing, with Stunning view from the top. Parking in the winter time a little tricky, but managed to just parked on the side of the road, then walk over to the gate, walk pass the gate, and head towards the trail. Follow the route up, until you see blue sign on the ground that says "trail". Follow the trail up. The trees would be marked with paint for direction. At the top, there is a stone bench. Beautiful for a break and taking in the Stunning view.

Great snow shoeing, hard to follow trail near the top

I just recently hiked this trail in the wintertime and there were (surprisingly) fair conditions at the summit. Washington is known for being home of the world's worst weather so it's extremely important that you constantly check the weather before attempting this climb in the winter. Also, proper gear is crucial!! Be sure to check out Eastern Mountain Sport's Mount Washington winter hiking gear list online so that you know what to bring. Extra layers are a must. Be safe out there!

Hiked this trail today with my wife and 3 year old daughter. My wife and I are experienced and helped our daughters a little of course but it was an easy hike that leads to a beautiful view point of my favorite area of the white mountains (Crawford Notch). The snow pack made it more beautiful and fun for all of us!
