Ascent Trip Report

What a gorgeous day and a beautiful hike!

This is our first NH 4000 footer hike and we picked the right one to get hooked!
Went up the Falling Waters Trail to Franconia ridge trail, which brought us over Little Haystack, Lincoln and Lafayette. Returned via the Old Bridle Path.
Gudi and Kaekae used the Old Bridle path to meet me at the top of Lafayette.
