Trail shared by Francis Fontaine

Description

If you are looking to feel small, this is the trail for you! As part of the Franconia Ridge Loop, this trail is simply pure joy and everybody should do it at least once. This is 4.9 miles of ridgetop delight from Mt. Lafayette to Mt Flume. It's an easy run, but the trails used to access it are quite steep.

You are at the mercy of the nature out there. If there is any chance of a storm, get to lower elevation as this is not a good place to be during lightning.
