King Ravine Trail

King Ravine Trail is 3.1 miles long with 2700 feet of elevation gain.  The particularly "terrifying" part is the climb up the headwall, which is 0.6 miles with 1250 feet of elevation gain.  The headwall is a steep, rough climb.  There are sections where you have to pull yourself up onto boulders while avoiding drop-offs on all sides of you.  I personally find this trail to be more difficult than anything else I've encountered in the Whites, and that includes Huntington Ravine Trail.  Others find it easier than HRT.  YMMV.
