Lincoln Woods Trailhead

Area Status: Open
This area is Open

A suspension bridge invites into a lush green forest.

This very large parking area has many ammenities, including restrooms, potable water, interpretive panels, trash receptacles and a cabin staffed several days a week providing visitor information as well as maps and longer term recreation passes for sale. Short nature trails between a suspension bridge and a pedestrian bridge alongside Rte. 112, both spanning the west branch of the Pemigewasset river, afford an accessible self-guided loop walk through the area.

Lincoln Woods trailhead is considered the gateway to the Pemigewasset Wilderness, the largest in the northeast. Popular backcountry destinations include the Bondcliffs and Thirteen Falls Campsite, but in warm weather great numbers of people visit scenic Franconia Falls. From the trailhead, Eastside and Lincoln Woods trails travel up either side of the river, and intersect with many trails, notably Osseo, Bondcliff, Wilderness, and Cedar Brook.
