Afraid the trail would be packed, but it was actually pretty pleasant.

Valentines Day Massacre

Girlfriend and I went up on Valentine's Day 2009. Great views of Cannon and the Kinsman's on the way up, but the Ridge was in the fog. On top we were battered by 60mph winds, wicked temperatures, and no visibility. It was so much fun I might do the whole ridge trail in a few weeks!

Winter Conditions  Sucess!

Went up the old bridal path with a well packed trail. Used crampons from the Greenleaf hut until the summit. Had around 40+ mph gusts above treeline and was getting cold with the wind.

4 Peak String  Sucess!

Left from the Lafayette Campground and hit Lafayette as the first peak then headed to Lincoln, Liberty, and Flume. Lovely trail and beautiful views from the top. Chilly and windy (as usual) but gorgeous!

Did this as part of the loop, a great hike. Total trip time was 5 hours even.

Up Old Bridle, Down Falling Waters  Sucess!

My first trip in the whites in NH, what an introduction. The trails were well kept and beautiful. The clouds rolled in and out making a dramatic scene.

Mount Lafayette  Sucess!

Climbed with Little Haystack and Lincoln via the Falling Waters Trail from Franconia Notch. My final 4000' in New Hampshire and also one of the best. Definately one of the best hikes in the Northeast. We had nearly perfect weather for our final climb with views in nearly every direction for most of the hike. Lots of people at the summit but it didn't seem to detract from the experience. A fantastic finish indeed!

Brilliant October foliage  Sucess!

Backpacked in and the weather had us completely engulfed in fog. Set up camp to see how the next day would turn out. It was still foggy, but not as thick so we started up. Just as we came over the treeline the fog started to burn off. We watched it just melt away and were left with breathtaking views of the colorful fall folliage down below.

franconia traverse  Sucess!

great hike

franconia ridge traverse

this is my seocond time over the ridge and has to be my favorite in the Whites. Was overcast and the threat of bad weather was looming off in the distance but it held up and still had some nice views coming over the ridge.

up old bridal path and down falling waters a little icy up at the top of falling waters but nothing terrible.

beautiful hike - several times  Sucess!

Wow what a beautiful peak to climb. I have climbed it, along with Lincoln, several times and always appreciate its beauty. I strongly recommend doing it in winter. The ridge in its white brilliance is a great place to be!
