This large trailhead is located on the southeastern end of the Mt. Clinton Road close to Rte. 302 and AMC’s Highland Center.
The Crawford Path was originally built during the 1800s and used as a horse trail over the southern Presidential Range to the summit of Mount Washington. In commemoration of its 175th anniversary, the Crawford Path was designated a National Recreation Trail In 1994. This 8.5 mile spectacularly scenic trail is the oldest, continuously maintained, hiking path in America. The section just north of Mt. Pierce to the summit of Mt. Washington is a segment of the Appalachian Trail.
