Lafayette is one of my favorite mountains in NH, the views are outstanding and the summit is beautiful. Two of my most memorable trips :

Climbing the bridle path to the top at night (arrived at the summit at 1 AM with noone around in July)



Climbing the bridle path at night in a blizzard in November. We did not make the summit and ended up camping in the middle of the trail near Greenleaf hut. There was 18" of fresh snow by morning. Fun Fun Fun!

Above the Greenleaf Hut, the wind blew the clouds away and it was a glorious summit day. Terrific views (even Washington eventually cleared). And every time I got tired on the Falling Waters trail I turned around and saw another beautiful waterfall!

This was part of our first leg of our Franconia to Pinkham hike. Fog most of the way.

One more false summit would make this peak even better, don't ya think? After leading 9 teenagers from Garfield, finally reaching the summit was a blessing and well worth the climbing. We were enroute to Greenleaf Hut for the evening and had a nice clear day on the ridge.

Fantastic hike on a hot day. Trail is easy going, small scrambles on the agonies. Meeting the hut at treeline is a welcome site to those low on water. Views are beautiful ascending the ridge.

Easy to see why this is such a popular hike. Go during the week if possible, or during the winter.

Hiked up Falling Waters Trail, brought the ice climbing gear and soloed Shining Rock... I'd say it goes at WI2 for a little over 100'.

Did the traverse many years ago....just finding this site now of course. I remember this hike being the first time I saw snow falling in Summer.

Wahoo, this is a great climb. It doesn't let up, but its well worth it. If only it wasn't so popular, but its no wonder why it is.
