This trail was amazing, my cousin Adam and I got to feed the grey jays at the top. The view was incredible and breathtaking. A perfect place for a picnic, we sat up there with some other awesome hikers for 45 minutes enjoying the view, the birds and each other’s company. The hike was moderate I’d say. I feel it was easy for such an intense view at the top. Definitely a 360 view, you can see the range, Mt. Washington and the Mt. Washington Inn. I didn’t want to leave. It was definitely icy and snow covered through out the hike, but manageable with spikes on. We didn’t end up crossing over to Mt. Westford because of the snow coming. Enjoy, definitely a must do!!

Did just Mt Pearce and part way to Eisenhower. Winter for sure. 80mph at top. Fun day wit Steve, Tom, Tom, Becky Chris and Ruth.

Hiked this weekend. Don’t forget your spikes! Pretty icy close to the top. 4 hours round trip, was a good work out and worth the trip the Sky was clear at the summit and the views were fantastic.

We took Edmands Path up and it is by far one of my favorite trails. The waterfall is currently very icy and along the trail in general has spots of ice. Microspikes are highly recommended. Eisenhower is beautiful. I loved it very much. Pierce was nice as well. We then ventured over to Jackson and summited there. If you do this there are some blow downs along the way from Pierce to Jackson but can be maneuvered around.

Good hike. Can get confusing over by Mt. Webster. Make sure you don't go down the cliff trail if you don't mean to! Late Oct we had sun and 50 degree weather at bottom, snow and WIND at summit of Jackson but thankfully cleared up by Webster. A tough hike after rain! Bring good boots. My Apple Watch says just under 7 miles (but we wandered quite a bit), and over 1200 calories burned! Quite the cardio workout.

Amazing views from both peaks, steps and slippery at parts. Gray Jays at summits super friendly! The traverse between peaks was moderate with a scramble to get up to Jackson regardless of what side you come from. Less crowded than other trails in the region and a really cool forest setting.

Our leaf peeping adventure was almost foiled by the seemingly persistent cloud resting at the summit, but around 1300 it cleared out and the views from the summit were stunning. We made it up to the summit in about 2 hours going the direct route, and then took about 3 hours coming down to negotiate the moist large rocks. There is, in fact, a cool waterfall on the second leg.

Beautiful!!!!

Did this loop on 10/11/19. About as beautiful day as you could hope for. Trail was mostly dry with not a lot of mud. It is a difficult trail with all the rock scrambling, but that's also the fun part. The Webster summit is not technically on this loop - slightly off trail. The scramble up to Jackson was very intimidating for a 40ish couple from SC - not a lot of hand or foot holds - but we did it and enjoyed it. Likewise, the scramble down from the Jackson summit was intimidating as well. It's a long 7 miles and some change, but very rewarding, challenging, and some great views and scenic water crossings.

I enjoyed this trail a lot! There was some steep sections and would recommend some hiking poles . Foliage was on point!

10.8.19 we started up around 9:15 am, reached the top at 12:30 pm. Blue blaze disappears at the halfway point and reappears at the rock scramble. Hike took longer than expected. The second half of the trail was extremely wet, like walking in a brook. Views were outstanding from the peak, cold winds up there, Canadian Jays wanted our snacks, we headed backdown at 1pm arriving at base by 3 pm. Rocky-Rooty hike, leaves down, water running everywhere... brooks are high, we crossed at least 4. Be careful until snow flies and packs in to smooth the trail for some great winter hiking.
