Ascent Trip Report

Came up Falling Waters Trail from Lafayette place. Steep climb but the water falls are worth it. Summitted Little Haystack and headed north on AT over Lincoln and Truman to summit. The ridge hike is beautiful with great views in all directions. Lots of people here as it is Saturday and the solstice. Hiked down to hut and then down the Old Bridle Path. Trail is steep in a lot of places and very rocky. Nice views of Cannon and west on the descent.
