Join us for a moderately paced day hike - the classic ~9-mile loop to Mts. Lincoln (5,089') and Lafayette (5,260'). We will ascend Mt. Lincoln first and follow the ridge to Mt. Lafayette for a total elevation gain of ~3,800'. On a clear day, there are many opportunities for picturesque views along the ridge. We will be getting an early start on this hike due to the popularity of the Franconia Ridge area. Parking will be tight so we strongly encourage carpooling to the trailhead
