Hike to AMC Lonesome Lake Hut

On February 23, 2019 I joined a meetup.com group to take my first hike to the AMC Lonesome Lake hut in Franconia Notch in Franconia, NH.

Although the trail was only 1.6 miles from Lafayette Place Campground,  it was a steep stair climber hike!

Even though it was steep climb, the view of Franconia Ridge was well worth it.

The Lonesome Lake Hut was a fantastic place to rest and relax. Hikers and overnight guests can buy a hot drink and snacks.

The wood stove, the small book shelf filled with books and board games made the hut an awesome place to relax, unwind and warm up.

The good thing about hiking to the hut in the winter is that we could walk across the lake rather than around it.

This places is definitely on my list of place to visit again!
