Favorite Mount Washington Trail
I'm trying to get a little action going, so what's your favorite trail to the summit of Mount Washington. Most importantly, why?
If I had ever climbed Huntington's I'd probably put that on top of the list. Since I haven't I think I'd have to go with Tuckerman's. I'm really shocked to see in the summer after a spring skiing trip. Its hard to believe I skied over all those cliffs on what was just a steep snow slope.
Lion's Head for the view into Tuck's is right up there especially when you can mix in an Alpine Garden traverse.
Ammo Ravine / Jewell Trail loop
I really enjoy the Ammo Ravine Jewell trail loop on the other side of the mountain where it is alittle less traveled. The waterfalls are incredible (Gem Pooll) and the views from where you break tree are awesome. Food at Lakes also makes this trail great. I have done this loop both in winter and summer and it has been incredible each time!! Speaking of winter, anyone know if the road to this trailhead is still open?? Not sure when they close it?
Thinking about coming up next week to summit. If trailhead parking is open might climb using this loop.
