"Finally a nice day, comfortable weather not as much humidity and clear sky. We approached the summit via the ammonoosuc ravine trail! The trail is steep and steady but good slabs of rock, great footing up and down the mountain. 360 degree views from the summit, wish we had these views on Mt. Washington but we were able to get views of the Mt. Washington summit." - hbotc, Aug 15, 2018
"So, I headed up to New Hampshire on Saturday morning with a plan of hiking a southern presidential traverse on Sunday since the weather was supposed to be perfect. Luckily, Kim came with me to act as my personal shuttle to pick me up in Crawford Notch after dropping me off at the cog Base Station. I started up to Ammonusuc Ravine Trail at 7:15am and made my way up to Lakes of the Clouds Hut. The weather was absolutely perfect and I quickly took my jacket off on the way up.

Snowshoes up to the hut, crampons to Monroe and Washington, over Washington to Jewell we switched to microspikes. At treeline we returned to snow shoes. Fantastic weekend to bag the last of my presidentials (winter)." - shay-shay, Mar 18, 2017
"Great day for hiking upper elevations, bright blue sky and temps in the 50s and a reasonable wind. Went up Ammonoosuc Ravine and took Crawford trail south to climb Monroe. Bagged West Peak on the way." - Alohabuffy, Nov 19, 2016
"It was an amazing day on the Presidential Range. The clouds stayed away from me on the summit of Mt. Monroe, and I had a great view back down the range towards the Crawford and Franconia Notches. I came up the Ammonoosuc Trail, and bagged this peak before heading over and summiting the big guy, Mt. Washington." - HikeLikeMike, Aug 20, 2016
