This is an incredible hike, I did the loop so I saw the waterfalls and walked along the ridge. It is awesome. Check out my write up along with some other things to look out for.

Great trail, awesome start to our hike up LH, over the Franconia ridge, and down Lafayette for a night at Green Leaf hut. When they say "heavily traveled" they mean it. It was like a conveyor belt of hikers at time going up. I'm totally down with everyone getting out there and enjoying our natural world, it with that many people, always comes the rotten egg- for our hike it was the group of smokers who couldn't not light up on the trail. Oh well!

This trail is a ton of fun and beautiful. A perfect mix of scenic and green with physical challenge. Never a bored moment. It was misty the day I hiked it so the climb had a lovely mystique. That said, I definitely would not recommend this trail if it's actually raining because there is a considerable amount of sloping rocks that you have to ascend.
