The "Pemi Loop" is a loop-shaped hiking route along several interconnected trails in the Twin and Franconia Ranges of New Hampshire. These ranges are part of the White Mountains, and lie within the White Mountain National Forest.

The loop runs over some of the highest and most scenic mountains in New Hampshire outside the Presidential Range. It can be done in either direction - we'll be doing it clockwise.

Much of the route is above treeline and is quite vulnerable to high winds and sudden localized weather changes. Weather in the White Mountains is unpredictable, so plan accordingly.

We will start and finish hiking at the Lincoln Woods Trailhead.

Total Distance: 35 miles (includes ascents and descents)
Total Elevation Gain: 10,000 ft.

Sunrise: 5:30am
Sunset: 8:15pm
