The Hike

Ammonoosuc Ravine and Jewell Trail Loop

This is a very beautiful trail, with many waterfalls and scenic overlooks. It is a relatively easy grade for the first half hour to forty five minutes, and then starts ascending somewhat steeply. You will have a few water crossings, which are easy as you can hop from rock to rock. You will come across a sign that says "overlook".....it's a very short walk to a 600 foot narrow waterfall. Further up the trail, you will start to climb on more and more rock slabs, which can be a bit precarious in wet weather. However, it makes for a fun and interesting hike.  As you poke your head above treeline, you will quickly come to the Lakes of the Clouds Hut, a very popular cabin with hikers.  From the Cog Base Station to the Lakes of the Clouds Hut, where the Ammonoosuc Ravine Trail officially ends, takes about 3-4 hours, depending on how fast you climb and how many stops you make. The Ammonoosuc Ravine Trail/Crawford Path is the most direct route to the summit of Mt. Washington on the west side, at under 4.5 miles. Above treeline, it is very rocky, but graded very well. The ascent of the Mt. Washington summit cone is perhaps easiest via the Crawford Path.
