We'll be hiking Franconia Ridge, which contains three peaks: Little Haystack, Lincoln, and Lafayette which are all 4,000 footers. This hike has one of the best views in New England as it follows a ridge-line once you reach the summit of Little Haystack. We'll be hiking up via the Falling Waters trail to Little Haystack, followed by the Franconia Ridge trail to Mount Lincoln and Lafayette. We descend via the Old Bridle Path. The total hike will be 8.4 miles in a loop.
Hiking boots or trail runners (no sneakers - you will be turned away if you show up in them)
2 - 3 liters of water
day bag to hold supplies
food + snacks
sunglasses & hat
map of the hike
This is not a beginner hike; do not make this your first hike in the White Mountains. You must be in good shape which means you exercise regularly in running, biking, or other applicable cardio area. Recent hiking the Whites at 3,000+ feet more than qualifies you. You must have the supplies above or you will be turned away before leaving the carpool spot. You are responsible for having a map of this hike; this is not a guided excursion. You are joining like-minded enthusiasts and are responsible for your own safety.
