"Hiked up the Slide trail to Flume summit and then hiked over to Mount Liberty. Slide was really wet and had to stick to edge of woods for grip, but really enjoy this hike and route." - blackwolf_03278, Aug 22, 2017

"Came over from Liberty, then down Osseo. Relatively cold, but the harsh wind on Liberty had dissipated by the time we got to Flume. So nice sunny spot for lunch. Needed spikes for first mile down Osseo." - Alohabuffy, Nov 13, 2016
"We enjoyed a beautiful day hiking the Franconia Range - the day was sunny, in the 50's and only windy on the ridge. We started at the Flume Slide trail hiked the ridge through Flume Liberty, Little Haystack, Lincoln and Lafayette and then descended to the Greenleaf Hut and out via the Old Bridle Path. On trail at 6:30, arrived back at parking (shuttled a car at 2nd lot) at 6pm. 11.5 hours trail time including 1.5 hours on summits and in GL Hut. Incredible hike!" - deb-and-rob, Sep 24, 2016
