Lakes of the Clouds Trail is a 4.4 mile moderately trafficked out and back trail located near Chandlers, New Hampshire that features a lake and is rated as difficult. The trail offers a number of activity options and is best used from March until November. Dogs are also able to use this trail but must be kept on leash. Spectacular scenary, ravine climb The trail is generally level for the first 2 miles at which time you will arrive at the gem pool. The last mile is VERY steep. Only the last 3/10ths of a mile is very exposed to the wind but in inclement weather that can be too much! Please remember that this is not a good place to hike in the winter and that Mt Washington has claimed over 125 lives. If you must go, you must know what you are doing and how to save yourself.
