The highlighted trail below is basically the entire route to Owls Head excluding the actual summit push (slide and bushwhack). It’s a cool trail that gives you a chance to experience deep wilderness and a very lightly trafficked path. Although unless you’re doing Owls Head or continuing all the way to Galehead, it’s not worth the mileage. There are no blazes or bridges beyond Franconia Falls, so picking up the trail after river crossings can be tricky. Lincoln Brook crisscrosses the river several times, two of which are big crossings. These can be difficult in high water.

I lost my Solomon sneakers on Owls Head path on 8/17/2017! About half way up the slide to the Owls Head summit. Blue and green, size 8, Solomon speed cross 3 trail runners.

Please email me if you find them and are willing to bring them down the mountain. Thank you! metzmn6@gmail.com
