Guidebook Descriptions:
1960 AMC White Mountain Guide
The summit of Owl’s Head may also be reached from the Franconia Ridge Trail. From the Lincoln-Lafayette col head E, dropping about 200 yds. to a big slide. From the foot of the slide go out through a deep cut and continue E, reaching Lincoln Brook about ½ m. from the slide, near the third crossing of the stream at 4.2 m. on the Lincoln Brook Trail. From this point climb diagonally SE to the summit. This route was blazed in 1949, but is now obscure. As with the other trailless peaks described in this guide, the ascent should not be tried by inexperienced parties.
