Comments: This is a really nice loop if you are up for about a 2.5 mile roadwalk (generally down) at the end. I had Mt Eisenhower to myself which was quite lovely. Thanks to the good Samaritan hiker who found my bug net and put in on the trail with a rock on it! Figured I might as well get Franklin in with the quick side loop before hitting Monroe (which I kick myself for not doing when I did Washington). There were a TON of people coming up the Ammmonoosuc Ravine when I went down- all heading to Washington. It was also super wonderful to see the hut opened! Happy Happy. I have not gone down the trail and it was a bit steep in places but all very doable going slow. I had one lovely group of hikers saying ' have a good life and please vote'. Lol. Also saw an unexpected amount of young kids on the trail with their parents. I love knowing these parents are investing in their kids in a way that brings them closer to nature and the mountains. They were bopping up the trail like "Washington ain't no thing"! lol
