These routes are short and very close to the parking lot at the top of Crawford Notch. Great choices if you have limited time.

Getting There 

From the parking lot at the top of Crawford Notch, walk south on the railroad tracks through a cut in the rock and a bit further. The routes are easily visible on your right except for Elephant Head Gully which is on the opposite side of the road before the cut through the rock.
