Day 2: Franconia Notch
Follow an old bridal path as we ascend the ridge to the summit of Mt. Lafayette in New Hampshire's Franconia Range. Marvel at the 360-degree panorama of seemingly endless mountains as you obtain the summit. (B/L/D).
Day 3: Mount Washington
Hike through dense forest and scramble up Mt. Jefferson. Then experience the tundra as we walk along the spine of the Presidential Range to Mt. Washington, the tallest peak in the Northeast. The trip back down the mountain is aboard the coal burning, steam-powered cog railway, in operation since 1869. (B/L/D).

Day 5: Mount Mansfield - Lamoille River
After a shuttle to the top of Mt. Mansfield, Vermont's highest point, stroll along the ridge to Lake of the Clouds. Following lunch it's off to the gentle Lamoille River for an afternoon paddle alongside farmlands and ample offerings of autumn color. (B/L/D).
