Franconia Ridge Loop with stay at Greenleaf Hut

Trip dates: Saturday, July 13, 2019 12:00 AM to Sunday, July 14, 2019 12:00 AM

Join the leaders for a classic White Mountains loop with a stay at the AMC's Greenleaf Hut. On day 1, we'll hike up Falling Waters Trail, passing many waterfalls, and then along the Franconia Ridge to Little Haystack Mountain. We'll then continue on the Franconia Ridge Trail, which is above treeline and part of the Appalachian Trail (AT), over to Mt. Lincoln and Mt. Lafayette, two NH 4,000 footers. From Mt Lafayette, we'll hike down to Greenleaf Hut for dinner. On day 2, we'll have breakfast at the Hut and will either finish the loop, by hiking out via Old Bridle Path, or re-hike the ridge, depending on the group. Total elevation gain will be 3,425 ft while total mileage will be 8.9 miles over the 2 days. Register at REGI link


Driving directions will be given to approved participants a week prior to the trip.
