Took my girl and my dog out here after a friend told me I should check it out. So glad I did. You basically hike the ridge all the way to squaw valley and it has amazing 360 degree views. Challenging but well worth it

Completed July 2017. Took Tuckerman’s Ravine to Lion Head Trail and onward to summit Mt. Washington. Breathtaking views. Hard trail, cloudy at the summit, with clouds breaking slightly.

This shows up under Oregon hikes even tho it’s not in Oregon.

Riverview to major rd to horseshoe pond parking lot.
With Barbs group. 12/15/17

It was an amazing hike! The trek up seemed never ending but totally worth every single step! The view was incredible!

this particular hike was a great hike to challenge your body to hike some hills. far as the look out point, well it was a disappointment.

avoid starting on the lower trailhead. The climb up the ridge to the upper trailhead is very steep and easy to lose the trail, at least at this time of year. Bring snowshoes for the upper forest road and microspikes for the trail. Really nice forest to hike through!

This was an easy hike. Majority of it is walking up a gravel road but the scenery isn't horrible. Tried to get back to double falls but encountered to much ice on the trail. There is also a trail to get behind the falls and to the bottom

Beautiful views all around. Will need some sort of traction and hiking shoes/boots.

We were here in August and it was one of the highlights of the trip. We made it to the falls and back with our 6 and 8 year old children. Gorgeous views!

Very easy, yet very enjoyable hike. The trail itself consists of mainly just matted grass and is very well marked. The only thing to really watch out for is gopher holes as they can be quite large and deep. Other than that, it was a nice hike and you really can't ask for better views. Ranger Station was well staffed and there were several souvenirs available for purchase. Keep in mind that dogs are allowed on this trail, however they are not in any other trail located near the Ranger Station. Dogs are allowed on two others trails that reside just past the main park entrance on Highway 4.

This was about a perfect a day that you could wish for to accomplish this hike. Beautiful January weather and the sky was clear at the top so the views were amazing. The hike up the North Ridge Trail was a pretty significant climb but so pretty. We added on the hike up to the summit and then hiked back down to the North Ridge parking area. Such fun!

Beautiful day to hike the trail. Hardest part of the trail beginning the ascent with the switchbacks until it all levels out. Had to turn back short of the turnaround due to the necessity of snow shoes to continue. Otherwise a great experience!

A bit icy toward the top but phenomenal views!

Pretty hard not going to lie, but well worth it! Decided to go left on the trail and hike by the river before going up Misery Ridge and I think it was way better than going up all those stairs. Beautiful hike!

Awesome in January!

We did 4 miles RT of this trail today 1.13.18. Lots of snow - would recommend snowshoes or skis for any real distance on it. We turned around after the meadow area. Very pretty though!

Hiked 9/21/17.

Definitely doable in a day, but I skipped Bross. It is on private property and they patrol it pretty frequently. I didn't feel like I missed out in any way by not doing it, though. Went up to Democrat, then to Cameron and Lincoln. The summit of Lincoln was my favorite - beautiful 360 degree view. Most of the trail isn't very exposed, but that meant we were caught a little off-guard when the winds got strong up high. Get an early start, 8:00am at the latest. We started late and were rushing to get down before nightfall. This wasn't too difficult of a hike for my first 14ers, just expect it to take awhile. And be sure to acclimate to the altitude as much as possible in advance, and it will go much more smoothly! :)

Amazing views and feeling. We made the summit by 2:05pm 01-09-18 (start time 8:53am). Lucked out with beautiful blue skies. The terrifying brownish grey clouds scattered away as we ascended out of the willow area. I'm not the fastest so took about 9 hours total. Winter trek is 11+ miles (my GPS said 12) due to having to park at Silver Dollar Lake TH as Guenella Pass is closed from there. Walked down Guenella Pass in the dark on the way back to the car, but as long as I was of the actual trail before dark I was felling comfortable and our eyes adjusted to the dark. Micro-spikes were perfect, there was no need for snowshoes. I agree with the review before me do not look over that snow bank down to frozen lake too much as its sketchy and snow is slightly deep there.
