Tuckerman Ravine, on the east side of Mt. Washington in the White Mountain National Forest, is famous for its spectacular scenery, deep snow, and challenging terrain. Thousands of motivated visitors make the six-mile roundtrip to the floor of Tuckerman Ravine every year. Some push on to ascend the steep slopes above and a smaller number decide that a descent through Ravine is a good choice for them. Tuckerman Ravine is managed by the US Forest Service. When added with its neighbor to the north, Huntington Ravine, the area forms the Cutler River Drainage, the most heavily used backcountry area on the White Mountain National Forest. You may visit any time of the year though the most popular seasons are the spring and summer. No matter when you come the most important rule of thumb is to plan ahead and prepare! The terrain can be overwhelming; the weather is often downright inhospitable; and the sometimes-sizeable crowds can cloud your perception of the Ravine’s actual remoteness.
