Comments
Comments: We had originally camped out by Franconia Brook to bypass the first 3 miles of lincoln woods trail but the day before (28th) we had a black bear encounter and packed up and slept in our car. We started at 3:30am Friday and got back to the car at 5:51pm. Great day and great views along the ridgeline. It was hot but fortunately the breeze rolling through kept us mostly cooled. We were sweating a lot especially below tree line and drank a TON of water. Enjoyed the views at each peak and it wasn't terribly crowded at any of the peaks. About 1.5hrs or so on our way down there were a series of rolling thunder but we never experienced any rain, not sure what happened at the top. Overall an absolutely great day and glad we stuck around to enjoy the views and cross three more mountains off our list. While there is plenty of water along the trail for you to filter I would still bring some with you especially for the ridgeline where you don't have as much access. Especially on these much hotter days coming up. Even with several applications of sunscreen I still got a small non painful sun burn at my hairline. I think I found my new favorite hike :D
