How to register:
1. Sign up here: https://p.ridj-it.com/app/trips-search?id=26563
RSVP on Meetup does not mean you registered for the trip, you must sign up on the link provided.
We do pickups off of I-93 at Park & Rides if you live north of Boston. Please email [masked] for a request.
Drivers pay a $20 deposit which is refunded to them after successfully driving participants. Drivers will be compensated for gas & travel in addition to the refund.
Riders pay $29 for the carpool to the trailhead and back to Boston, which is used to help compensate the drivers on gas & travel.
Please note - if you sign up as a non-carpooler and don't make the event, we keep a tally of how often you flake, and this can negatively affect your ability to join a trip in the future.
2. Event description:
Want to be able to go on some great hikes up in the White Mountains and not able to make it on the weekends. This hike is for you. We'll be hiking Bridal Vail Falls in Franconia Notch, one of the best waterfalls in New Hampshire. Bridal Veil Falls is an 80 ft. drop with a series of slides alongside Coppermine Brook. Scrambling up along the slides offers the best views of the falls. We'll be hiking via the Coppermine Trail out-and-back, totalling 5 miles.
We may also go to nearby Artist Bluff in Franconia Notch which offers sweeping views of the notch in a short and easy hike.
Beginners are welcomed to join this hike.
Here's more info on Bridal Veil Falls
We may go out to dinner/beer after the hike, depending on the decision of the group.
Here's the route we'll be taking: https://www.alltrails.com/explore/trail/us/new-hampshire/bridal-veil-falls-trail?ref=sidebar-view-full-map
