3 days // 6 summits // 33.6 miles // 12,456 feet of elevation gain

Independence Day weekend in the White Mountains of New Hampshire

// from Mt Cannon

// Kinsman Ridge Trail

// Franconia Ridge Trail

(above) Three circuits of trails that each originated at our campground in Franconia Notch State Park.

// Greenleaf Trail

Even if we had not been camping or hiking in the area, the drive through Franconia Notch Valley via I-93 would have been well worth it. From the Valley, you travel in the shadows of Mounts Flume, Liberty, Little Haystack, Lincoln, and Lafayette to the East and Mount Cannon to the West.
