I did this climb a second time today to get to Lincoln and Lafayette to do the 9 mile loop. There were no clouds and great views all around.
I climbed this on a Tuesday afternoon. Low clouds hid the valley below for a spectacular view.
Climbed with Lincoln and Lafayette via the Falling Waters Trail from Franconia Notch. Lots of people on the first sections of the trail. Beautiful waterfalls along the trail. Great views from the Little Haystack's alpine summit. The foliage was spectacular.
I did in 1998 and 2001 as part of the Franconia Ridge Traverse
Came up from falling waters and enjoyed the nice views before continuing along the ridge.
Up Falling Waters and down the Old Bridle Path, great hike, exposed at the top, awesome views. Very cold in October.
Up Falling Waters & down Old Bridle Path. A great day out with my son.
As part of loop.
After beginning our Franconia Ridge Traverse from the opposite side the route is usually hiked(we felt like salmon swimming upstream), we finally hit our last peak of the day, Little Haystack, and enjoyed the spectacular views surrounding us. Descended Falling Waters trail afterward.
Part of an overnight trip.
Took the falling waters trail, which had some interesting water crossings to get to the Franconia Ridge trail which I then took to Mt. Lafayette.
I didn't set out to summit this peak, but on this day I hiked over it twice on my way to Lincoln and back.
up falling waters and down old bridle path, a classic hike but no views :( next time!
An easy way to knock off 4-4000 footers and a 5k all in a day and a night. although Lafayette is not in the easy categorey, but moderate
Climbed it as part of a four day Pemmi wilderness traverse from Lincoln woods to Crawford notch. The fog came in right at the summit so that we didn't see anything.
didnt hang out very long on this summit, falling waters trail is a great way to end the hike though
