Mt Lafayette – White Mountains, NH
Mt. Lafayette is my favorite mountain of the white mountain range so far. I love the ridgeline views that it offers! It’s a great hike whether you hit it from hiking a day hike or incorporate it into a long backpack trip it’s a great mountain to summit. You do have to be careful of bad whether coming in though. At 5,260ft of elevation, you are subject to pretty extreme weather. You’re also pretty far from treeline at this point so it’s very important to be mindful of the weather.
This summit of Lafayette is very rocky so be aware of your pup’s paws. Rocks can easily cause raw spots for them and blisters. Also, bring enough water and food for both of you! If you’re thirsty your pup probably is too.
