"Bagged with Field and Tom. Ideal weather, despite reports of snow on some higher peaks the day before. No clear signs for the Ethan Pond trailhead (or Willey House Station Rd) until about 10 yd down the path, where it splits right and away from Ripley Falls. The Willey Range Tr segment between Ethan Pond Tr and the Willey summit was unrelenting in steepness and proved to be quite tiring, even with the help of wooden ladders. But from the Willey viewpoint onward, the hike was a breeze. The path is quite narrow at points, but overall very pleasant. It was a very clear day, so even the limited vi" - gooner, Sep 2, 2017
"First time all the way up the steep side, tried and failed last winter after mega snowstorm. Now I realize why. But it is a good hike and doing the 'ladders' a must. Lunch on the Outlook is great. But clouds would not go away so views were a little muted. Checked out Ethan Pond on the way down. Camp site was busy." - Alohabuffy, Aug 26, 2017
"After a failed attempt trying to cross the Little River to climb the Twins we made our way over to Crawford Notch and set our sights on Willey, Field and Tom. The trail to Willey starts off as part of the AT for the initial 1.6 miles as we climb over some nice rock stairs and log stairs to reach 2600'. At ~ 1.6 miles in the AT splits off and heads towards Zealand Falls and the Willey Range trail starts up - REALLY up as we will climb only 400' over the next 0.6 miles and then 1300' in the last 0.5 miles before the summit - heavily eroded and a little slick in the rain at the top but a very fu" - deb-and-rob, Jun 9, 2017
"Beginning was rough as several bare booters had torn it up. After 1/2 mile on Ethan Pond, only a few snowshoers, so snow was loose. At Willey Range split, no one had gone to Willey. So we broke trail until near the ladders. There the extreme pitch and deep snow made it difficult and dangerous. Called it a day." - Alohabuffy, Mar 18, 2017
"Oh what an adventure! There must have been at least 18 inches / 2 feet of fresh snow...which was quite crunchy and led to us actually being able to hike this mountain today. The famous ladders were not even visible...in fact it took us pushing our poles over 2+feet into the snow to be able to touch them. Our strategy was to bushwhack around the ladder portions and hang like monkey from the trees. The summit was full of bluish/purple clouds...we got to see more of these strange clouds moving through the notch close to sunset time...BLUE MOVING CLOUDS IN THE MOUNTAINS!! Today's roundtrip wa" - shay-shay, Jan 25, 2017
