Let's hike Old Bridle Path to the Greenleaf Hut and the Greenleaf Trail to the summit of Mt. Lafayette.
If we summit the details are round trip : 8.0 miles, 3,600 feet, 5:50 Book time- we will assume a few extra hours for a slower pace). We do not need to summit to have good views. Trail conditions change daily this time of year, so keep this in mind while you study the trails.
There are excellent views along the Old Bridle Path, and the last mile up the Greenleaf trail is entirely above treeline. A very popular trail, we will be conservative in our goal for this hike- if conditions are too icy we will turn around.
Winter conditions will be in force. Proper winter hiking clothing and gear is mandatory. Dress in Layers. Snow shoes AND microspikes/crampons.
