    Close, but you left out a syllable.

    You actually have to start a little down the road from the Cog Base. There is Forest Service parking for hikers. The Cog lot is for train riders.

    Gem Pool, 2.1 miles, 950 vertical feet
    Lakes of the Clouds, 3.1 miles, 2,500 vertical feet
    Mount Washington, 4.5 miles, 3,800 vertical feet

    Distance and vertical is cumulative. Once you get to Lakes of the Clouds you actually take the Crawford Path to the summit.

    This is a great trail to take to the summit especially if you like waterfalls. It is also below tree line for most of the trail. Great views once you get above Gem pool.

    thanks for the info! also you can hit the trail from the cog railroad theres a path that leads to the trail to cut some time off the hike. i think it was a little past the shed if i remember. right side of the train station building.

    Of course, might take 15 minutes off the one way time if you start at the cog base.
