Comments
Comments: Did this one with Colin. Put snowshoes on in the parking lot and left them on until returning to the parking lot. The route along Greenleaf Trail between treeline and the summit doesn’t follow the actual trail but it does get you to the top. The section of Franconia Ridge Trail between Falling Waters Trail and Liberty Springs Teail Trail needs more traffic to set a good trail. There was one set of snowshoes heading south but soon after we started we encountered three coming north (one wearing snowshoes, the other two bare booting).
