Trail has a very consistent steady rise and is nice and wide. This is a highly traveled trail year round. Thousands of skiers descend on the ravine each spring to catch the last of the snow and to party.

Mount Washington can be a dangerous place simply because the weather can change in a minute and the heights are so accessible. Over 125 people have died on Mount Washington because they have not been properly prepared or not properly cautious. There is a list at the cabin describing each name, date and cause of death.

Some people hike up with their sleds and slide down the ski trail.

The trail follows a brook and water is available if you have a filter. There is a lovely waterfall near the start of the trail. There is a cabin and outhouse at the top. They are not heated.

Literally could not have asked for better weather when my boyfriend and I did this hike. We took Tuckerman's Ravine until it met with Lion's Head, and followed that the rest of the way to the summit (though it meets back with TR for the last .6 miles). We took TR all the way down though. GREAT views, and really fun trail. We trucked it up the first 2 miles of TR, slowing down on LH and then enjoyed a leisurely descent back down TR. Loved doing this, and would totally want to summit Mt. Washington again, maybe trying a different route.

Went for a perfect summer day hike in September. Some level of physical fitness required. Wish to go again...

This trail took my girlfriend and I 4 hours up and 3 hours down. October 10th and although there was a very small amount of snow. There was no ice on the trail because it was in the sun most of the day. It was beautiful and exhausting. Arriving at 10:30 am we had to wait for a parking spot in the big parking lot. Lots of people.
