I wrote a short story about repairs coming to the much-loved but much-overused Franconia Loop hiking trail – one of the greatest day hikes in the entire world. You can read it here, but the reason I bring this up is that it’s an excuse to revisit one of my all-time favorite stories: “Are New Hampshire’s hiking trails too hard?” It includes some digs to overly easy back-and-forth switchback trails found out west.
