My son (11) and I had a great 2 days backpacking trip from the Loj via Avalanche Lake to Lake Colden where we pitched our tent, and on the 2nd day we climbed Algonquin Peak with zero visibility and 50 mph wind with a 50 lbs pack. Still, we had a lot of fun doing it. Will go back for sure, probably in winter.

Made the trip down from Ontario to bag our first High Peak. Chose Algonquin because we only had time for a day trip. Started out a beautiful, clear fall day but cloudy and windy on the summit. Trail was wet and muddy to Whales Tail, then wet, and icy to summit. Saw a pine marten. 45 more to go...

Another whiteout on an adirondack high peak in october. Icy conditions made the trail quite treacherous from lake colden. We camped at the leantos and came home from an evening walk to find a huge bear in our leanto. Fortunately all our food was on the hang line and, even though he tried, he couldn't get it down.

Spent two cold days bagging the High Peaks. Hit Algonquain, Coldon and Gray, spent a brutally cold night in a lean-to then hit Skylight, Marcy and Phelps. We were past peak for the foliage thus making this a cold overcast and gloomy adventure.

Nice short hike up from Lake Colden with Akshay Damarla. Went down the trail to the Adirondack Lodge. Trails were pretty rugged and muddy but the forest was extremely pretty and the view of the lakes and hills were worth the short hike.

This was peak #1 on my first triple peak-bagging day! Beautifully bleak, crowds not overwhelming for Labor Day Saturday. High peak #5.

2nd time on Algonquin. Always fun to be high on the Mcintyres. Passed over it after doing the route up to Iroquois from Lake Colden.

Great Views- especially of the trap dike on Colden. Crawling with people in the summer but feels like the most remote place in the world in the winter.

First day after the thaw. Trail is steady from link to Marcy Dam. Ran into wet slabs above 3000ft made for sketchy scrambling at Wright/Algonquin col. Was passed by Pine Marten 200ft from summit. The view from colden was full of contrasts as alpine grasses were still brown fom winter.

stillaliveRoute Climbed: Van Hoevenberg trail from adk loj Date Climbed: July 10th 2005  Sucess!
Trail was crowded and muddy, with waterfalls in strange places, due to three days of torrential rain before the sky cleared that morning.

Also decided to ascend Wright Peak at the last min., Algonquin is very rewarding after seeing it from the summit of Wright first.

Deep Woods Off is ineffectual, recommend stronger bugspray.

Challenging trail!

Started too late on this walk and ended up sweating a lot through the woods, although the afternoon weather was good, no storms. Crowds on the summit (including park rangers!)

Easy hike during breakup. Mud wasn't very bad at all.

Perfect fall hiking day. Ice and Snow starting at about the Wright Peak Trailhead. Last 1/4 of the mountain was very icey, yet fun! Return trip through Avalanche Pass.



We skipped Wright and Iroquois due to the 15 mile trek and low daylight hours. Total trip took 9 hours with various gazing breaks inbetween.



Hiking partners were Tim Bressett (46er) and Heath LaBarre (1st high peak).
