Description

This trail is most certainly the long way up to Mt. Washington if that is your intended destination. Although the grade is nothing like Tuckerman Ravine, the Jewell Trail is longer, but not easier. Additionally, this is also the location of the Cog Railway that chugs up to the summit of Mt. Washington.

From Mansfield Station, you can choose where to begin this trail. Either head straight to the trail from the parking lot or head to the backside of the station where you'll find a sign that will lead you over a creek onto the trail proper. If you choose the backside of the station, you'll be able to see some of the old cog trains.

After entering the alpine zone, you'll go through a large boulder field where you'll find good views and nice spots to have lunch. You can also watch the Cog Railway from a distance as the trains go by up to the summit of Mt. Washington. After the boulder field you'll connect with Gulfside Trail.
