Trailhead: Lincoln Woods (conveniently located off of NH Rte 112)
Trails: Lincoln Woods Trail to Franconia Brook to Lincoln Brook to Owls Head Path.
Flag: 1 to fly at FORMER summit. MAIN flag to fly ABOVE the trees on the new/TRUE/OFFICIAL Summit.
AM Departure: 7AM
Pace: Sherpette and I’s pace has quickened as a team over the years, hiking about 30 min to a full hour ahead of book time on Average. We hope to get to the summit by 10:30AM at the latest so we can get the flag above the timber. Please leave at a time comfortable for you and of course you are welcome to join us!
**REMINDERS: Be forewarned of the Water Crossings. They do tend to be high during this time of year and the water COLD! Plan accordingly. This is a 9 Miles OUT followed by a 9 Miles Back hike (18 Miles Round Trip).

An absolute pleasure.
We also plan to fly the WORLD FLAG on the same pole as the American Flag. Of course the American flag will fly higher. Both flags will be above the trees.Sherpa JohnSeptember 4, 2006 at 1:55 amPost count: 71
