Great Autumn Loop in Franconia Notch

One Great Loop to hike in the White Mountains is the Franconia Ridge.  It is a great day hike that takes about nine hours or so to do. The start is at Lafayette Place Parking. Hike up .2 to a two way path, one being Falling Waters Trail and one being Old Bridle Path. Doesn't matter which way you decide to hike, there are so many wonderful great views. You will also then hike along the Franconia Ridge Trail and view landscapes from three different mountains. The loop is 8.8 miles and worth every step! 

What you will see along this great hike:
  • Stairs Falls
  • Swiftwater Falls
  • Cloudland Falls
  • Shining Rock
  • Little Haystack
  • Mt. Lincoln
  • Mt. Lafayette
  • Echo Lake
  • Greenleaf AMC Hut
  • Walker Cascades 
  • and many amazing views along Old Bridle Path
During Autumn the leaves are changing colors and the air is cool. You will see many views along the Ridge were the colors are beautiful. If you get a chance this fall to hike a wonderful loop, take this adventure in Franconia Notch!
