Old Bridle Loop/Franconia Ridge/Falling Waters

nh

Star Star Star Star Star

Distance: 9.2 miles


This is a wonderful hike that hits three 4,000 footers: Mt. Lafayette, Mt. Lincoln and Little Haystack
  • Greenleaf Shelter
  • Ridge to Mt. Lincoln
  • Looking back toward Lafayette
  • Mt. Lincoln from Mt. Lafayette
  • Great Waterfalls
  • Eagle Lake

From the parking lot along 93 this trail has it all.  Taking Old Bridle Trail the path follows dense woodland until climbing up to the Alpine Zone.  From Greanleaf Hut the trail takes you along Franconia Ridge with amazing views of the Whites and up to the summit of Mt. Lafayette.  As the trail goes south you summit Mt. Lincoln and then Little Haystack.  Joining the Falling Waters trail back to the trailhead this takes you through a series of waterfalls and criss-crosses the stream.  This hike has it all!
