Barely a half mile on the Tuckerman Ravine Trail is the Crystal Cascades. Nice outlook to the waterfall. Trails were completely snow covered and I wasn't prepared for the rain and sleet so I turned around before the bowl. Washington has had almost 30" of...More

Only a couple hour hike in from the Pinkham Notch Visitors center with great falls along the way if you're not too busy looking at your feet. I see more people miss the Crystal Cascade only 10 minutes up the trail that its rather comical....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

There is not much on the East coast that can compare. Steep skiing and narrow terrain all after a 2-3 hour hike. What starts out as a nice day, can turn into full winter in a matter of minutes. If you are smart and prepared,...More

This is the shortest ascent of Mt. Washington from its eastern flanks. On good weather days, the trail becomes a parade of hikers going up and down, so be prepared to pause as people pass you. I went with a small group bound for 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
