  • Mount Washington descent questions

    My fiance and I are planning on parking our car at the base of Mount Washington, taking the railroad up to the summit and the walking down to the Lake of the Clouds hut. We'll stay there the night and then walk down the next day to our car. Does anybody know the "easiest" route to descend from the hut to the parking lot near the railroad, and how long is it? Also, how hard is the descent from the summit to the hut? Any information you can give me about this will be appreciated.

    Take Ammonoosuc Ravine trail. The direct path back to the parking lot(from Lake of the Clouds) and a couple of miles long. It's fairly steep for 1/3 of the way, then levels off. If you want something easier, you have Crawford Path down to route 302, but that's a LONG walk back to your parking lot. The decent from the summit to the hut is no problem.
