Instead of spending $$ on Spring Break, Amanda and I spent about $15 each for food and headed into the White Mountain National Forest.
Hiked a total of 15 miles in 3 day. We were dropped off on highway 112 right by the Dilly Trail Head and headed North on the Kinsmin Ridge Trail. The first day we hiked a total of 7.5 miles to Eliza Brooke Shelter. The trail conditions were brutal and we spent the whole day postholing in snowshoes but we eventually made it to the shelter…10 hours later. Great night spent at the shelter and beautiful weather throughout the whole trip.
Day 2 was spent hiking 4 miles North toward the Kinsmin Pond Shelter. Gorgeous day with temperatures reaching into the 80’s. With that kind of weather in March its only natural to shed some clothes at the top of the summit of S. Kinsmin.
Short second day of hiking but the views of Loon Mountain and Franconia Ridge were so worth taking our time on the trail.
Day 3 we linked up with a father and daughter from Southern New Hampshire and hiked to Layfayette Campground via the Fishing Jimmy Trail (do not hike! very dangerous). Another great day with great weather.
Amanda and I were dropped off in Plymouth around 2pm and went straight to Bidermans for a beer and sandwich.
One of the best Spring Breaks I have ever had. Like I said, only $15 dollars was spent on food and the rest was priceless.
Thanks for reading.
