Hiked Lafayette, Lincoln, Liberty and Flume on July 26, 2014. These were peaks 484, 485, 486 and 487 for completing “The Grid over 60”. I hiked these with Mike Lynch. We spotted a car at Lincoln Woods and then drove to Lafayette Place where we hiked up the Old Bridal Path to the Greenleaf Hut.
From the Greenleaf Hut we hiked up the Greenleaf trail to the summit of Lafayette where the views were a little bit hazy but still pretty good.
We proceeded south on the Franconia Ridge trail to the summit of North Lincoln where there were quite a few people gathered.
Continued further south on the Franconia Ridge trail to the summit of Lincoln passing a lot of people on the trail and many on the summit.
Still traveling south we stopped at Little Haystack and had a sandwich (PBJ) and then continued south to Liberty. The stretch of trail between Little Haystack and the Liberty Springs trail is usually not very popular but today there were a lot of people hiking it.
After taking in the views from Liberty we continued on to Flume the last summit of the day.
Leaving Flume we descended down the Osseo trail to the Lincoln Woods trail to the Lincoln Woods parking area. The Osseo trail has nice views where it descends steeply over ladders.
Only 89 peaks left to finish “The Grid over 60”.
