Little Haystack Mountain is a mountain located in Grafton County, New Hampshire. The mountain is a peak on the Franconia Range of the White Mountains. Little Haystack is flanked to the north by Mount Lincoln and to the southwest by Mount Liberty.

The Appalachian Trail, a 2,170-mile (3,490 km) National Scenic Trail from Georgia to Maine, traverses Franconia Ridge, including Little Haystack.

Although well over 4,000 feet (1,200 m) in height, the Appalachian Mountain Club doesn't consider Little Haystack a "four-thousand footer" because it stands less than 200 ft (61 m) above the col on the ridge from Lincoln.
