Mount Lafayette is a popular hike in the White Mountains. The trail head is easily accessible, the trails are well marked and maintained, and hikers wanting to "bag" more than one peak over 4,000 feet can check off Mount Lincoln as well—Lincoln lies on a ridge between Little Haystack and Mount Lafayette. This portion of the loop trail is also part of the Appalachian Trail. On a clear day, New Hampshire's highpoint, Mount Washington, can be seen from the treeless summit.
