Hikers should be experienced and carry the proper equipment, as the weather can be extremely bad all year round. The 6288 ft. high mountain dominates the Presidential Range of the White Mountains and is the highest peak in the northeast.


Additional Details:

The most popular trail is the Tuckerman Ravine Trail, which leaves Rt. 16 behind the AMC Pinkham Notch Visitor Center. It starts off as a graded path of moderate difficulty leading to Tuckerman Ravine. The rugged mountain cirque is famous for its spring skiing. Camping is limited to shelters and tent platforms located in the Ravine; obtain tickets at AMC Pinkham Notch Visitor Center. Continuing on to the summit, you will be above tree line (where trees are 8’ tall or less) so take extra warm clothing. The trail is marked with cairns (small mounds of rocks) above tree line.
