King Ravine Trail Professional Reviews and Guides

"A massive glacial cirque carved into the northern flanks of the Presidential Range, King Ravine lives up to the lofty standards of its regal name.

Swooping down from the overhanging crags that top Durand Ridge, the nearly vertical headwall of this monstrous mountain bowl descends to a field of toppled boulders, each bigger than a house. Regrettably, the headwall portion of this strenuous route looks less like a hiking path than a paint-blazed obstacle course."

"Tour into the wild, dramatic King Ravine on the north face of Mount Adams to ski Great Gully."

"Trails lace the flanks of Mount Adams, a peak lined with rocky
ridges and gouged by deep valleys. King Ravine cuts deepest, a
giant bowl scooped from the mountainside. The densest collection of trails in New England explores the surrounding area. This hike unravels the knot of possibility and guides you along the most dramatic combination of trails.

The hike loops around King Ravine, winding along Snyder Brook, passing the Valley Way Tentsite, and then surmounting Durand Ridge to ascend dramatic Air Line above the King Ravine headwall. The route climbs to the top of 5,799-foot Mount Adams and then descends along the west edge of King Ravine to Crag Camp and Gray Knob, public cabins maintained by the Randolph Mountain Club (RMC). Descend brook-lined Amphibrach Trail."

Done on Dec 28th, 2002. Found the trail to be packed out, snowshoes needed as elevation was gained. Was difficult to identify the trail heading to Mt. Madison from the top of AirLine, though it follows a clear path through the trees. Spruce Traps EVERYWHERE!
