This weekend we celebrated Eli’s birthday at Kimballs on Friday night. We then headed up to the Lodge for the weekend.
Saturday was rainy, so we didn’t do much, but it was nice to just relax.
On Sunday, the weather cleared up and we hiked the Coppermine Trail, which leads to Bridal Veil Falls.
The hike starts about 10 minutes from the Lodge, about a mile from the Franconia airport. The hike is a very easy grade 2.5 miles to the falls. Along the way there are lots of entertaining aspects like a shelter, bridge, and water for most of the way. At the top we dipped our feet in the water, threw rocks, and climbed to the top by the base of the falls.
Overall this hike was a huge hit for the kids, I’d definitely give it a 10/10. I bet it’s amazing in the spring during the snowmelt.
