Current Presidential Range Trail Conditions

Please support today's Day Sponsor & TrailsNH Affiliate.
Mt Washington Avalanche Center posts advisories for the Presidential Range. Last known advisory was:
Posted May 25: A SECTION OF THE TUCKERMAN RAVINE TRAIL IS NOW CLOSED TO ALL USE.  This section extends from Lunch Rocks at the floor of the Ravine to the top of the Headwall where it meets the Alpine Garden Trail.  This includes no skiing or riding through the Lip area.  Only this section of the trail is closed. This annual closure is due to the magnitude of the crevasses and undermining, and the severe consequences of a fall in this area. The trail will reopen after the last snow has melted off.  Check in with one of the local visitor centers to determine the status of the clousure before starting up.  If you use motorized access to the summit of Mount Washington it is NOT recommended that you descend any route through the Ravines.  You will not be aware of the hazards below you.  Many have attempted this over the years, often resulting in severe accidents.... See MWAC website for more details.
