Throwback Adventure – Fraconia Falls – New Hampshire

I will have sections of my blog that I will title “Throwback Adventure”, and will plan on posting them every Thursday. These are journeys we have taken before I started the blog, but are well worth sharing. Many of these Throwback Adventures will include our Buster, who was known for his crazy tail, his happy howl, and his zest for life. We miss him dearly…he is forever in our hearts!

In October 2017 Shadow, Wilma, and I Adventured to Fraconia Falls in the town of Lincoln, in the White Mountains of New Hampshire.  The Falls is a series of cascades that is sourced from Fraconia Brook.  Fraconia Falls is a popular area for swimming and sliding down the Falls.

We had a wonderful Adventure to Fraconia Falls on a gorgeous Fall day.  The hike to Fraconia Falls begins at Lincoln Woods, one of my favorite hikes of the White Mountains.  We were excited to journey on an extra long hike, all the way to the Falls.  The trail turned left when we arrived at a scenic wooden bridge, right about where we noticed the sign leading us to Fraconia Falls.  We decided to first traverse this bridge and view the Brook before turning around and heading on the trail to the Falls.  We then began hiking along the trail which paralleled the Brook.  We soon located a scenic area to stop, relax, and have a snack, such a peaceful oasis along the shore.  After a restful break we continued on to the Falls.  The Falls was simple, and unique in its own way.  We posed for some photographs, standing on the rocky platform, and viewing the area off to the right.  I actually wondered if it was the true Falls as I was expecting a much larger, and more elaborate natural creation.  I still sometimes ponder this question but we did follow the sign and arrived at this Falls, so how could we be mistaken??

The Falls was our last stop before turning around to return to our car.  We had spent the day wandering the trails of Lincoln Woods and exploring various spots along the way.  Another perfect day in the White Mountains (Rating:  Lincoln Woods:  5, Fraconia Falls:  3).

Below please enjoy some pictures from the Falls, the trail from the bridge, and one from right before the Falls trail.  If you would like to read more and see photos about Lincoln Woods search for Lincoln Woods in the “search box” for more information.  (On a mobile phone you can find this at the very bottom of the page, and on the computer you can find it to the right of the blog.)

  1. What an exciting trip!  I look forward to hiking it again with you, Heather. I could just hear the rushing waters as you wrote your blog!

  2. Do you use the app that tracks you steps on the phone? You must rack up plenty of miles over the months. Thank of how much more motivating it is to go and seen new places with your buddies, rather than to do the distance on gym equipment. Keep posting these for us to see.
