So Nic commented on my “good gravy” and I hopped over to check out his blog. Turns out it’s the family blog The Coastal Path and the family is hiking it around Britain! How cool is that? I can see where it would be a lot of fun. The Maine trip cemented for me how much I miss the outdoors and how I need to let the snake thing go (sorta). In any event, their latest trek is here…
I’m really looking forward to the book club twist for this month which is to hike Lonesome Lake trail in Franconia Notch.
Lonesome Lake Franconia Notch, NH
Distance: 3.0 miles round trip
Trail to pristine mountain lake with great views of the Franconia Ridge. Park at Lafayette Campground parking area off I-93 south. Trail starts at the left side of the parking lot. Follow the yellow blazed Lonesome Lake Trail. After a mile, High Cannon Trail splits to the right. Stay on Lonesome Lake Trail, as it now becomes steep. When you get to the top, take the Cascade Brook Trail along the south side of the lake.
