What a crazy hike! Very steep and made interesting with the steep rock slabs which fortunately were dry. The whole trail was dry, no creek etc. There were a few mud spots towards the top but no issues crossing. The summit peak is small and did start to get over crowded as everyone wanted to eat their lunch. But I got my pictures and snacks in before heading back. There is a random car at the beginning of the trail. Another really hot and humid day with minimal to zero breeze.

Parking disclaimer - We were the 1st ones that pulled up to the trail head which is in a neighborhood. Sign clearly states no parking but no other sign to say "park here" so we ended up parking on Mill street and crossed the suspension bridge. When we left we saw a bunch of people had chosen to park in grass area near a few houses and then along the road near the suspension bridge. It would have been nice to see a sign "hikers park here" etc. I was nervous to get towed by angry homeowner so I went with the parking lot near the soccer park.

Very tough for someone like me who is just starting out and is afraid of heights. This was my 6th hike for the year. I hiked up but came down in shuttle. Beautiful views along the way which I wish I could have enjoyed as my goal was to reach the top and to reach it safely.

this was amazing beautiful waterfall . it a must must see.so worth it

Amazing trail. Highly recommended, as the views are incredible on the headwall. There is just enough exposure and light scrambling while ascending the ravine, followed by a physically demanding (approximate) mile of a boulder field to the summit.

Loved this hike! We started on the Tuckerman Ravine trail and ended up splitting off onto Lion Head trail for the better views, although steeper and harder. I recommend going up Lion Head versus the latter due to intense boulder climbing! When the clouds parted way, the views were amazing! Definitely bring multiple layers as it was 30 degrees F and windy at the top!

This was a beautiful hike that we did. We hiked up via the Boott Spur and made our way down to Mount Isolation. We ended up doing a traverse out through the Rocky Branch Trail. Overall this was a good hike with good views.
