Mount Washington is the highest point in New England and the highest peak in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. Often called the most dangerous small mountain in the world, Mount Washington is recommended for experienced hikers and climbers who can handle significant elevation gain.
Tuckerman's Ravine Trail from Pinkham Notch is the most popular route to the summit. It is important to properly research this trail and bring proper gear as conditions can quickly turn dangerous as a result of bad weather in the form of severe storms, snow and wind. There are no markings on Tuckerman's Ravine, so it's easy to take a wrong turn. Keep left after the last yellow arrow and follow the cairns once you crest the wall.
Distance: 7.9 mi
Elevation gain: 4,169 ft
