Ascent Trip Report

Camped at Liberty Springs Campsite. Reached the summit using Liberty Springs Trail and Franconia Ridge Trail. Then continued on Franconia Ridge to Mount Lincoln. The final approach to Haystack is very steep and rocky, requiring some rock-scrambling. The entire ridge extending from Little Haystack to Mount Lafayette is exposed, rocky and picturesque.

Returned to Franconia Notch using Falling Water Trail. The first couple miles of the descent was very steep and rocky. The waterfalls along the 2nd half of the descent are fantastic.
