Sunset over Greenleaf Hut (Ty Wivell)
Perched at treeline overlooking Eagle Lake, Greenleaf Hut’s views of nearby Mount Lafayette inspire you to explore the length of the Franconia Ridge. Summit Lafayette, and you’ll surround yourself in high mountain beauty as the Pemigewasset Wilderness, Franconia Notch and the Kinsmans beyond stretch out around you. It’s a classic White Mountain experience.
Hike a moderate 2.7 miles to reach this popular hut, and our Greenleaf croo will greet you with hot meals, information about the surrounding trails and wilderness, and plenty of great energy. Stick around and do day hikes from Greenleaf to nearby peaks, or head to neighboring huts to experience more of AMC’s hut network. See self-service and full-service season dates >>
