Little Haystack Mountain is a peak on the Franconia Range of the White Mountains located in Grafton County, New Hampshire. It is flanked to the north by Mount Lincoln and to the southwest by Mount Liberty.
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.
The Falling Waters Trail is the most popular route up Little Haystack Mountain, leading 2.8 miles (4.5 km) from U.S. Route 3 to the summit on the crest of Franconia Ridge. One of the most popular hikes in the Northeastern United States is to traverse the summits of Little Haystack, Lincoln, and Lafayette in a 9-mile (14 km) loop.
