    It is deceiving for sure. At least its not straight down. So if you tripped and fell off the side of the trail you're not going to fall 3,000 feet? Thats all I car about. On the other hand I drive the Mt. Washington Auto Road every year so whats the difference right?

    Sure... Waterfall hikes are our favorite by far. It gives a nice destination and something to try to find besides the top of a mountain.

    don't get me wrong there are a couple spots where you don't want to trip.
    other then that, no if you trip you won't tumble down the mountain.

    That doesn't sound as bad. Sort of like the auto road, a couple spots where you don't want to get too close to the edge there also.

    Ive been on the Franconia Ridge Trail, it is very nice. If you are a hiker this is a trail not to be missed!

    The Franconia Ridge Trail and Crawford Path (in the Presidential Range) are without a doubt 2 of the best hikes in the White Mountains.
