Mount Garfield

Mount Garfield is a New Hampshire 4000 footer best known for its rocky knob summit with sweeping views deep into the Pemigwasset Wilderness. It is connected via Garfield Ridge to Mount Lafayette 3.5 miles away. The Appalachian Trail runs along the ridge and across the summit of Garfield. The most popular route to the summit is the easy 5 mile Garfield Trail which mostly follows old fire roads to the top before a short, steep, and easy scramble to the summit.
