Comments: The Crawford Path is worn due to heavy use over time. Exposed roots on trail in the wooded stretch of the trail require attention to avoid tripping. Water and some mud on Crawford Path between Mizpah Cut-Off and Webster Cliff Trail. Crawford Path from Lakes of the Clouds to the summit of Mt Washington has good footing on well placed rocks and rock steps.
Great views from the extensive open ridge and summits.
Many hikers out today including AT thru hikers walking both north and south. Still a patch of snow high on Oakes Gulf and on the side of Mt Jefferson.
