From the parking lot, take the Whitehouse trail
north in the woods for about a mile. You will soon reach a
bike path, which you follow on the left and over a small bridge
on the Pemigewasset River. After the bridge, watch for signs
on the right for the Liberty Spring Trail (white marks). You
will stay on this trail until close to the summit. When you
reach the Franconia Ridge close to the summit, take the Franconia
Ridge Trail on the right for the final section to the summit.
This stretch is a bit rocky, but you will be rewarded with
great views on the Franconia Notch below, and on the other
summits of the Whites, including the famous Mount Lincoln
and Lafayette (see our hikes there).
