    Gorgeous day! (do make certain you have a good weather day as there's lots of exposure on this trek). Just to let you know there are no restroom faciliities at the TH so stop somewhere before you get there. I'm not the fastest hiker so I started at 8am and finished at 4:25pm with 1/2 stop for lunch at the Lake of the Clouds Hut. I didnt' hike up Eisenhower as I had already done this one. I hiked to the hut then hiked over Monroe from that side on the way back. Tip: I found this a much better/easier option to avoid trying to find the right boulders going up from the other side as mentioned in this guide.

    wow this was great. I returned to the car, after climbing Mount Eisenhower but my son went all the way to Mount Washington! Trail has great creak crossings, no trees over the trail and great views once above tree line. It took me three hours to get above tree line from the car. My son only took 1.5 hours to get up to treeline (about 4000 foot). All and all great hike for beginners and a great way to start a Presidential Traverse.

    This was a fabulous hike! As with any hike in the Presidentials, the weather can be a problem, so if the weather is questionable at the trailhead, it will certainly be much worse at the summit. We had great weather in the low 80s to start and it dropped to about 70 with a stiff wind near the summit of Eisenhower.
    The trail was wet in some places but nothing too difficult with hiking boots. It took my wife and I (both in our mid 50s) about two hours and 45 minutes of climbing to reach the intersection with the Crawford Path near the summit of Eisenhower. It''s just a 15 scramble to the summit from here.
    The views near and at the summit are spectacular. Mt. Washington and the train to its summit were visible in the distance.

    Edmunds Path is not for the beginner. Although only 3 miles in length, it is a fairly steep climb for the entire hike. I carried my 22 month old son and daypack in my Kelty Child Carrier totalling about 40lbs. This was too much weight to enjoy the hike. A daypack with lunch or some snacks and plenty of water will suffice. The views are spectacular once you get above tree line. Mt. Washington is fairly close in the distance and you can watch the railroad go up and down the mountain. You get a great view of the Mt. Washington Valley and much of the Presidential Range. I would recommend the hike, especially if you are looking for a bit of a challenge.
