Overview

Let's enjoy the phenomenal views from Franconia Ridge. We will plan to hike 9.3 miles with almost 4000 ft. elevation gain at a moderate pace. Franconia Ridge is arguably the most beautiful day hike in the White Mountains. We will ascend the highest NH 48 peak outside of the Presidential Range, Mt. Lafayette (5260'), along with Mt. Lincoln (5089'), and Little Haystack Mountain (4760'). We will hike steep, rocky terrain, cross several waterfalls, and hope to be rewarded with sweeping panoramic views on the open ridge. If this sounds like fun, come join us! Winter hiking experience is important. Above tree-line travel experience preferred. Participants are required to have microspikes, crampons, snowshoes, appropriate insulated boots, winter layers and gear appropriate for extended above tree line travel. All participants must present a copy or image of their vaccination record for COVID 19 or proof that they have received a negative PCR test within 72 hours of the start of the hike. Participants are required to bring a mask to wear during any emergency or similar situation that requires people to be within close proximity for an extended period of time. To address unforeseen challenges such as adverse weather, unacceptable trail conditions or excessive crowding, the planned trip destination, activity and/or meeting place and time may be modified. In that event, participants may elect to join in that activity or opt out.
