Comments: Franconia Ridge is such a beautiful and popular hike! It's my favorite hike in the Whites! On Thursday, the trails were still relatively crowded with other hikers. Most people have been courteous but a reminder to bring a mask/face covering, limit the number of people in your group (if possible) and keep your distance from other groups. Particularly when the trail narrows, just be patient and pass groups when there can be more space between people. We all love the Whites!! We need to make sure it stays safe for everyone!!!
