Flume slide to Liberty  Sucess!

Both times I've hiked this the weather's been cloudy and wet, but still it's been well worth it. The Flume Slide is a ton of fun and I'm looking forward to doing it again this winter!

Escape from the Tourists  Sucess!

Took the flume slide trail up and managed to only run into 5 other groups on the way up. Slightly different on the summit and way down liberty springs where we passed at least 20-30 groups. The mountains are a mess right now.

Slippery  Sucess!

The Flume Slide trail is slippery, even when dry.

Slushy slog!  Sucess!

3 point something miles meandering through the woods (and falling through the no-longer packed snow!) had us thinking we were going the wrong way...until we made it to the slide. It was steep and slushy going up, but we were rewarded with an amazing summit: infinite visibility, not a breath of wind, and a balmy 25F on top. Just perfect. Probably the best weather & views this winter. After a leisurely lunch on the summit we dragged ourselves over to Liberty and then back to the car.

From Liberty  Sucess!

After doing Lafayette, Lincoln, and Liberty, we figured, what the heck and hit Flume as well. The only question was, which way should we descend. We chose the Flume Slide and I wasn't surprised at how steep it was, but I was bummed to slip, fall and break my tailbone on the way down. : ( It was a painful hike out, as we had to hike to the road and then another 3 or so miles back to the campground. Still, it was a full day of hiking with great views, but Flume will be on my "bad" list for a while!

Gotta do the slide  Sucess!

Go up the Slide Trail, well worth the steep ups as it is scrambly and fun.

Mount Flume  Sucess!

Climbed with Liberty via the Liberty Spring Trail from Franconia Notch. A great weather day indeed! We were the only ones there. Nice views of the Kinsmans and of the Franconias from Flume's rocky summit. A nice place to stop and have lunch before returning back over to Liberty.

End of a Long Day  Sucess!

Flume was the final peak we climbed coming from Garfield Ridge and on our way to Lincoln Woods in one long day. It was nice to look back across the full Franconia Range to see how far we had come.

Flume Slide -> Liberty Springs  Sucess!

Everything they say about Flume Slide Trail is true. You go and go wondering when you'll go up - then you regret asking. Really a fun hike, but a good workout too. Crystal clear day.

Flume Slide Trail  Sucess!

Hiked up the Flume Slide Trail, it was the first hot day of the year, yet there was still a little snow left on top. Very unique hike. Loved it.
