Ascent Trip ReportAlpha-Gal and M2 planned this as a 4 day hike from Franconia Notch to Crawford Notch using the Hut system for overnights. Day 1 is from the Liberty Springs Trailhead up to the Franconia Ridge Trail and back down to Greenleaf Hut. This hike passes over the summits of Little Haystack Mountain, Mount Lincoln, and Mount Lafayette. Alpha-Gal and M2 made a quick stop for lunch at the Liberty Springs Tentsite and checked out the spring and privy and then proceeded the rest of the way up to the ridge. The climb up Little Haystack was more difficult than anticipated and took much longer than planned. After crossing the ridge, summiting Mount Lafayette, and descending down to Greenleaf Hut, Alpha-Gal and M2 enjoyed a good dinner.
Miles hiked for the day: 8.8
