Avalon Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"The narrow summit of Mount Avalon provides excellent views of Crawford Notch, the Willey Range, and the southern Presidentials, including Mount Washington. For much of its length, the Mount Avalon Trail follows Crawford Brook, with some particularly attractive cascades."
--Robert N. Buchsbaum, AMC's Best Day Hikes in the White Mountains (Appalachian Mountain Club Books).
"A short hike to a big view of Mount Washington and the Presidential Range, with some lovely cascades en route."
