This is a Appalachian Trail section hike to Mount Wolf which provides good fall foliage views to Franconia Ridge, brooks, and rock scrambles. It follows Reel Brook Trail all the way to...
The Reel Brook Trailhead is located in Easton, New Hamphire.
From Route 116 turn onto Reel Brook Road which is on the east side of Rt. 116 in Easton. This turn-off is marked by a hiker sign and in on the right, 3.7 miles north of the junction with Routes 112 and 116; or 1.1 miles south of Easton's town hall.
Reel Brook Road is rough even in summer.
Follow Reel Brook Road for 0.6 mile, until you see another hiker sign, then take a left [if you dare] onto a small field that serves as a parking area. This will probably be no problem for SUV's, but cars with low underbodies need to be careful of all the rock popping out of the ground. Once you get past the entry way, the field itself is much smoother.
The morning hike up Mt. Wolf was cool, dry and delightful. The afternon return to base was a wash, a downpour fit for a fish. But the company was delightful, and the rewards at "base camp" (notably including, but not limited to, Jon's awesome cuisine and Mike's unlimited hospitality) made this a trip not to be missed. Good friends, good times, fireworks and a birthday celebration. What more could anyone want?
