Mount Liberty, standing at 4,459’, is a member of New Hampshire’s 48 4,000 footers and part of the Franconia Range. 

The Liberty Spring Trail is accessible from the Liberty Spring Trailhead near the Flume Visitor Center. 

Those hiking Mount Liberty often summit Mount Flume first then hike 1.2 miles across their connecting ridge to the summit of Mount Liberty. It is recommended that those looking to peakbag hike up Flume, via the Flume Slide Trail, then over to Liberty and descend down the Liberty Spring Trail. The Flume Slide Trail, featuring the Flume Ledges, is quite steep and offers a much more challenging trip down than it does on the way up. This loop totals about 10 miles.

The Liberty Spring Trail is also an option for those looking for an out and back hike. This option is a bit shorter at about 8 miles round trip. 

Whether you’re hiking in the winter or the summer, Liberty is a challenging hike where the weather can become unpredictable. Make sure you check weather reports ahead of time. The Flume Slide Trail is especially steep so take proper precautions.

The Liberty Springs Trailhead is located off of I-93 at the Flume Visitor Center exit. 

Downtown Lincoln, NH is a short drive from the Flume Visitor Center and offers plenty of food and drink options. Swing by One Love Brewery after your hike and enjoy some craft beer and delicious food.
