Vanlife New Hampshire and Vermont / Hiking Franconia Ridge Loop Trail

During our road trip from Florida to Maine, we loved exploring the mountains of Vermont and New Hampshire and had an incredible hike on the Franconia Ridge Loop Trail.

After spending a few months on the coast, it was great to have a change of scenery with stunning views of the White Mountain National Forest and Green Mountain National Forest during the colorful fall foliage which added to the dramatic mountain views.

On our trip, Damian sadly had to work while we were in the White Mountains, but nevertheless, Eliane went on a solo hike and absolutely fell in love with the stunning panoramic views during the Franconia Ridge Loop hike. It is a strenuous hike but worth every drop of sweat.

This Franconia Ridge hike offers incredible views of the White Mountains and even the Vermont and the Adirondack Mountains:

We intended to hike up Mt Washington as well, but the weather was nice enough only on a few days and we chose the Franconia Ridge Loop Hike instead and we are glad we did!

These are the places we visited in New Hampshire and Vermont:

-White Mountain National Forest, NH
-Bartlett, NH
-Franconia, NH
-Montpelier, VT
-Waterbury, VT
-Stowe, VT
-Burlington, VT
-Green Mountain National Forest, VT

During this section of our trip, we mostly boondocked, also parked overnight at a friend’s driveway and at public parking lots, and stayed in a hotel for a couple of nights to enjoy a hot shower and high-speed wifi to get some work done as well.
