Stunning views Talk about going in over our heads. Awesome trail, but getting to the summit of Mt Washington this way, for beginners, not in the greatest shape, not advisable. I have nothing negative to say about this trail. There are more rocks, than bare...More

This was our first visit to the White Mountains of New Hampshire. Taking the Tuckerman's ravine trail was our preference because of it's relatively short distance, great vistas and a bit of a challenge. It took us 4 hrs 45 min to get to the...More

We were exploring the area around Rt. 16 in NH for some hiking trails and came across Pinkham Notch where Tuckerman’s Ravine is located. The area was having some wild weather at the time – in the upper 40s in early June and super windy,...More

The Tuckerman's Ravine trail is a tough, short hike. We climbed this to the Hermit Lake shelters where we camped for the night. Hauling a 40 lb backpack makes it that much tougher, but I noticed several backpackers outpacing me by a good margin. The...More

This hike was the biggest physical challenge my husband and I have done! It took us about 3 hours and 40 minutes to reach the top with breaks built in. Areas of the trail defined as relatively easy, were also relentlessly difficult. We were fooled...More

My family of four have gone to many places hiking, Grand Canyon, Angels Landing, labyrinth and lemon squeeze in Mohonk Mt. This ravine is by far the toughest. It's beautiful to see the waterfalls, some leftover snow and the majestic view. We made it to...More
