Old Bridle Path  Sucess!

Went up with my husband EastKing! It was really windy!! I hurt both of my knees going down. However it gave me a good profile shot.

Route Climbed: water trail - Lincoln - ridgeline - Bridal trail Date Climbed: June 2002  Sucess!

Went over Lincoln first, then along Franconia ridgeline (magnificent) and up to Lafayette. Views are awesome. Franconia ridge is one of the most spectacular mountain areas in the eastern US. Lafayette is a beautifully sculpted alpine mountain. Went down bridle trail. Entire day is full of views. Spectacular!

Route Climbed: Falling Waters, Bridle Path, Greenleaf trail Date Climbed: Many Times  Sucess!

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!

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.
