Ascent Trip Report

Our final peak of the loop around Little Haystack, Lincoln and Lafayette. The portion between Lincoln and Lafayette was similarly outstanding with amazing 360 views. We spent a few minutes on the top to recharge (a few annoying bugs were on us) and then made our way down to the Greenleaf hut to fill up on water. Then it was down the Old Bridal trail to wrap things up. Amazing views going down this trail but it was a hot afternoon (felt badly for those heading up). As usual everyone was pretty tender by the time we got to the car, including the dog. This was a great loop hike we were able to do in ~7 hours with two 9 year olds.
