About This Trail

[Total: 0    Average: 0/5]

Mount Pemi is an easy to moderate hike in Franconia Notch. It gets its nickname from the profile when viewed from a distance. The trailhead is found in the Flume Gorge visitor center parking lot near the back where busses and RVs park (there’s regular car parking here too). The trail then heads up the Franconia Recreational Trail a short distance before it turns left to get onto the Mount Pemi Trail. The trail then goes under a series of three tunnels under the highway (great for yelling in!). The trail then heads uphill passing streams and large boulders as it zigzags up. A Note of Caution- There are large cliffs at the summit. However, there are plenty of areas for safe picnicking and viewing. Round trip is just under 3.5 miles. If an easier hike is desired check out the Flume Gorge.

Lyndsey started hiking when her daughter Aubrey (5)  was just a few months old. Lyndsey and Aubrey have been hiking together for almost 5 years now and have made some impressive climbs over those years. Lyndsey has been an ambassador for Hike it Baby since January 2015. They live in the Monadnock Region of NH and they have many small mountains to hike all around them and they venture the two hours north to the White Mountain National Forest as often as they can. Lyndsey and Aubrey started their NH 48 4,000 footer list when Aubrey was just 3.5 years old. To date, they have completed 2/48. They have been working on the NH 52 with a View list as well and have completed 7/52. 

Hiking had such a huge influence on getting over PPD that she wanted to help other local parents get out on the trails and build a community that is different from the other typical mom groups. Over the years she has learned so much about hiking with young children, from picking different carriers to choosing trails for toddlers. She wants to share her knowledge to help others, as this information was impossible to find when she was just starting out hiking with Aubrey!

Lyndsey also writes for her own personal blog that chronicles her and Aubrey’s hiking adventures together as well as offers articles and trail suggestions for families hiking in New Hampshire!
