I’m tired of all this “trail hiking” stuff. We’re just going straight up.

So, from what I can tell, there arent all that many options for getting to Lincoln, and if we do the big loop, we can “bag” 3 peaks that day.
Here’s my thought, we do an out and back – (South-East)Bridle Trail –> (South, then East)Falling Water Trail –> (North)Franconia Ridge Trail(AT).
It’s 2.82 miles(approx) one way. It has about 3200′ of elevation gain. Here’s a snap shot of the one way with elevation profile.
Any thoughts, or comments?ChrisKeymasterAugust 1, 2008 at 2:26 amPost count: 880
Dome and I did this same hike in January last year, but never made it to Lincoln. The wind was so strong across the ridge that we turned back rather than risk hypothermia. Let’s see what the other people hiking think…Z-manAugust 1, 2008 at 3:08 amPost count: 27
Are there other options? aside from taking bridle trail and approaching from the north heading south to Lincoln? Topo doesn’t have any other trail to Lincoln other then the Franconia Ridge trail (AT).ChrisKeymasterAugust 1, 2008 at 2:19 pmPost count: 880
The only other option is the Bridle Trail. Or going straight up, like I originally suggested.

Let’s touch base at the KOA and make a decision. Either will probably work. Getting psyched even though several people have backed out…
