      Thank you all for volunteering to participate in this year’s Flags on the 48 Memorial Hike. Our plan is to meet 7 AM Saturday morning at McDonald’s in Lincoln and drive to the trail head. If you want to drive to the trail head directly, that’s fine and I’ve included those directions as well. We’ll be leaving the North Twin trail head at 8 AM for our assent to the summit of North Twin.

      Please keep in mind that there are several river crossings that could be difficult at high water. Pack alternate footwear for these crossings such as sandals or water shoes. Also, remember to pack warm cloths for the summit, water, snacks and a lunch. The hike up and down plus 2 hours flying the flags will take us approximately 9 hours. Plan accordingly.

      Driving directions:

      McDonald’s parking lot (far end) 7 AM:

      McDonald’s parking lot, Lincoln NH, Rt 112, 7:00 AM, Saturday Sept. 13.
      Exit 32 off 93 North, Left at end of ramp – McDonalds is on your right.
      From there we will drive to the North Twin trail head off of Haystack Road.
      (40 minutes)

      North Twin Trail Head directions: Haystack road – 8 AM

      Route 93 North through Franconia Notch Parkway past Cannon Mountain.
      Once you go by Cannon and Echo Lake on your left – take exit 35; Route 3 North,
      You’ll travel on this road for awhile passing Gale River Loop and North Gale roads on your right. Take a right onto Haystack Road; follow to the end (about 2.5 miles).

      If you get lost you can try my cell number, 603.305.7921 or Brian’s at 603.289.5374.

      Looking forward to a great hike,

      David Cormier
