Franconia Ridge Traverse

Saturday, July 20th – Sunday, July 21st

 

Assistant Director James Hart will be leading a group on a 2-day, 1-night traverse of the iconic Franconia Ridge. 

 

Day 1: We’ll be departing Mowglis Friday morning for the Liberty Springs Trail on our way just 2.4 miles to the Liberty Springs Tent Site. That evening, we’ll summit Mt. Liberty for a sunset view. We have a special treat in store for you for that evening. 

 

Day 2: We’ll head ½ mile up the Liberty Springs Trail to the Franconia Ridge Trail for a gorgeous 3.5 mile traverse to summit Mt. Lafayette. We’ll descend 1 mile via the Greanleaf Trail to the AMC’s Greenleaf Hut, and then another 2.9 miles the Lafayette Place parking lot for our pickup. We’ll return to camp in time for picnic supper and provide a proper trip report for the boys at campfire. 

 

Notes: We can take a maximum of 8 people. This is a somewhat rigorous hike and day 2 includes nearly 8 miles of hiking. Mowglis can loan some gear, but the more of your own gear you can bring, the better. Mowglis will handle all the cookware, stoves, and water treatment.

 

Price: $35 per person
