Went up Porter, then Cascade. Probably the hardest wind I've felt in my life; it was hard to stand at the top. Fun hike, though quite muddy most of the way. A bit hazy, but pretty decent view off the summit.

Tried the falls without ropes summer 2013 couldn't quite make the peak. Tried a winter hike for my girlfriend birthday and just missed Porter after taking a fall.

Beautiful view and only a short way up from the parking lot. A must do for beginner and advanced hikers.

With limited time to spend, Cascade was chosen for the views. No such luck: drizzling on the trail, horizontal rain on the summit with zero visibility and temperatures not far above freezing. Still a pleasant hike, and quite a gentle trail by ADK standards, even if showing some signs of over-use.

We did this right after Porter and it was great. Awesome 360 view and such a good payoff for what was such a quick trail to hike. Definitely great for a first time hiker who wants to see what all of the fuss is about!

Hiked Cascade Mtn. 4098' as my first winter hiking experience. Cascade Mountain is by far the easiest Adirondack High Peak I have climbed so far. Started at the Cascade Pitchoff of of Rt. 73 with a friend who had never hiked before. The hike was an enjoyable one for both of us and we met some other friendly hikers on the summit and exchanged photos. This hike was particularly easy due to its low prominence, lack of recent snowfall, lack of serious scrambling and lack of significant steep icey sections for the time of year. While it wasn't warm, it wasn't very cold and there was almost no wind on the bald summit. We proceeded to hike Cascade's neighbor Porter Mountain after our summit, which was only about a mile away.

Beautiful summit with some great views and spaces to relax protected from the wind. Very popular route, with about hundred people encountered on the short hike. Fun to chat with others, but something to be prepared for.

Did this my family on vacation way back when. I remember we had to run down the trail to get back to the car before the sun set, but it was beautiful.

A frigid climb with 50mph winds at the summit made an incredibly interesting summit bid; what fun though!

The temperature dropped probably 30 degrees from trailhead to windy summit. But the views of the High peaks were amazing.

Drove up from Rome early in the morning with a buddy for our first winter 46er. Great morning with 360 view of snow covered high peaks. Porter is only .9miles from Cascade's summit.

Passed a dozen early birds on the hike who had no visibility from the summit, and about 3/4 of the way up the clouds cleared and the sun came out! Beautiful full view of the great range from this very short and easy climb!

jpbourqueCascade to Marcy Airfield  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Nov 19, 2011
We had 2 cars (party of 7). Left one at Marcy airfield and started hiking to Cascade (2nd time for me) from the 73. Extremely windy on top (60-70 mph gust), but beautiful sunny and hot for this time of year. We had lunch at the junction between Cascade and Porter. We then hiked to Porter, by Blueberry Mt and down to Marcy Airfield. The trail between Porter and Blueberry was maintained but it was clear it isn't a frequently travelled route. The views all around were beautiful.

Did Cascade in an afternoon. I had to get bike parts in Champlain, NY and decided to hit two birds with one stone. Beautiful summer weather for late september. It was my first hike alone. Left my car at 4 PM and was back before dawn. Nice bald summit. Not enough time for Porter. Cascade is supposed to be the easiest 4000 footer.
