Ascent Trip Report

Me and my brother set off from the Franconia parking lot on a journey to take on some more 4,000 footers. We didn't know this but Mt. Little Haystack isn't a 4,000 footer because of the distance of a dip or something. Which made me kind of mad but that's okay. It was a good hike up Little Haystack. We came up from Franconia Parking Lot onto the Falling Waters loop trail, It is a good hike for intermediate advanced hikers, it has its high elevation gains in some areas, but it has a lot of great maintained trail. But they advised us that there was a fire burning from Quebec and there might be no visability. But it cleared up and there was a 360 degree view at the top, one of the best views i ever saw. overall it is a awesome hike good elevation gain, great view although it isn't on the list it is a great hike and a great part of the loop.
