Crawford Path Trail

Crawford Path Trail

9.0 Miles Strenuous

White Mountain National Forest
Carroll, New Hampshire


The Crawford Path Trail is a 9 mile out-and-back hike that leads through the southern section of the Presidential Range of the White Mountains in New Hampshire. This GPS trail covers Mount Pierce and Mount Eisenhower and has a steep grade w/large boulders along the way. The boulders on the trail make hiking up especially difficult, because you're essentially hiking up stairs with different heights. Bringing hiking poles on this trail is recommended to help spread the load from your knees onto your upper body.

There's sparse camping opportunities and great views of Mount Washington and the surrounding area. The end of this trail leads to the Appalachian Trail and runs along the Presidential Range up to Mount Washington.
