Description

This trail begins less than a half mile up Tuckerman Ravine on the left/south. While Tuckerman follows a gentle slope into the bowl, Boott starts off a bit steeper onto the southern ridge of the bowl. Boott Spur gains about an extra thousand feet over the first 2.5 miles than Tuckerman Ravine. This makes it a slight slog, but it is one of the trails with very few hikers on it.

There are a few points that offer excellent views of the summit of Mt. Washington and the bowl. The trail ends at Davis Path, which offers a relatively flat route to Tuckerman Ravine at the top of the bowl which can be taken up to the summit.
