Hike Franconia Ridge
(traditional loop)

Moderate Hike | $175/person | 10 participants/hike

The traditional 8.7-mile Franconia Ridge Loop has been dubbed one of the top hikes in America by National Geographic and Outside Magazine!  Ascend Little Haystack Mountain up the Falling Waters trail (alongside beautiful flowing waterfalls) and spend the next couple hours on the ridge, above treeline, summiting Mt Lincoln and Mt Lafayette. Descend back down past the AMC Greenleaf Hut and back to the start via the Old Bridle Path, offering several spots of ridge view back up to the summits you’ve just conquered!
