Trail shared by Tanner Baloh

A difficult but rewarding climb that connects with Franconia Ridge Trail and Liberty Spring.

Description

This trail actually connects with Liberty Spring about 0.6 miles from the Liberty Spring Trailhead. The first two miles contain very little elevation gain and are a nice warmup. There are a few stream crossings that could be tricky based on water level, but nothing crazy. The final half mile is almost entirely scrambling/climbing. It's a difficult stretch that can be dicey in spots, especially if wet, but also can provide excellent views. Once connected to the Franconia Ridge Trail, it's a short run to the top of Mount Flume. If starting at the Liberty Spring Trailhead, this trail makes for a nice loop that involves summiting Mount Flume and Mount Liberty and descending back down Liberty Spring.
