Camped about 30 minutes hike from the road on Friday night. The trail was pretty muddy for the first 45 minutes, then started icing up for the rest of the trail. Tagged Cascade and continued to Porter as well.

Not bad weather on the way up ~ great hiking! Clouds rolled in while on the summit but still had some nice views before the sky opened up. One of my favorite High Peaks.

Great Hike. Farily Easy. Awesome Views. High Peak #5. Did it in conjunction with Porter. Fraily windy. Had a nice chat with a prospective SP'er. A good day to be alive.

Snow from trailhead to summit. Barebooted to top, no postholing perfect packed snow. First nice day of the year, clear skies. Always a fresh feel hiking in the Adirondacks in winter.

In the summer I traversed over Porter to come out at the air field after going over Blueberry Mt. Beautiful day

This was my very first High Peak, I accomplished it with the help of my friend Ethan Stansbury, and his dog Porter. The Weather didnt allow for any good vistas from any portion of the trip, however it did create a beautiful mist that surrounded us from all sides. At Summit we were actually standing in the middle of the clouds! I would say that visibility was at around 40%. The Trail Conditions were A little muddy and then turned to Ice and mud nearer the summit. I would highly reccommend this climb for any beginners. Even as my first High Peak, With the bad weather factored in, the summit was easily reached.

This was both my buddy Alan Meachum's and my 4 month old Chocolate Lab Porter's first High Peak. Checked the weather in the morning, chance of rain 30%... seems to be pretty good odds, we'll do it. HA! About 20 minutes into the hike the drizzle/rain started and didn't let up until we were basically in the clouds! For their first High Peak the views were non-existant, but still an awesome experience non the less! It was actually kinda eerie, not being able to see anything around us, but knowing that we were so far up with other peaks all around us!



We bagged Porter next... had to let my pup climb the peak he was named after first time out!

WEATHER STARTED OUT NICE BUT ABOUT 20 MINUTES INTO THE HIKE THE RAIN CAME AND KEPT COMING. THERE WERE NO VIEWS BY THE TIME WE REACHED THE TOP IN FACT IT WAS HARD TO SEE EACH OTHER. WE WENT UP AND TOUCHED THE SUMMIT AND LEFT. DISAPPOINTING CAUSE WE WERE PLANNING TO HIT PORTER AS WELL. ON THE WAY DOWN THE WATER WAS RUSHING DOWN THE TRAIL MAKING IT SLICK GOOD THING IT WAS SUCH AN EASY TRAIL . HAD A GREAT TIME EVEN WITH THE BAD WEATHER.

It started out in the high 50s that morning, but the summit of Cascade was wrought with high winds and freezing temperatures. Good reminder to be prepared when climbing in the High Peaks. Regardless, it was a fairly clear day and the views were magnificent.

One of the better views from the summits I've been on. This is a great steep trail but not too long. Averaging 30 ft/min vertical according to altimeter, we hit summit in 65 min from the road. Very satisfying.

My second and my wife's first high peak. A perfect day, and not at all crowded. September is a great time to be up there: people are back in work/school mode, but the summer weather persists. Word of advice: if you're going to try and do all 46 and are looking at doing Porter along with Cascade, do Porter first. The views from Porter are a bit disappointing after being on Cascade.

Wonderful winter hike suitable for the whole family--provided you have -- AND USE -- your snowshoes. Ours was a casual romp up an easy trail with a great snowshoe track, bare rock (no need for crampons) on top, but very exposed and windy. And cold. Unfortunately our start time was too late to allow for Porter as well.



The views from Cascade are 360 degrees and glorious, making this a very worthwhile hike.

The first time I climbed this peak it was a beautiful warm summer day. There were some thundershowers nearby though. My dad with with me and this was his first 46er peak. I also went and bagged Porter while my Dad rested at the trail junction.



The second time I climbed this was under winter conditions even though it was April. There were no views dues to fog, but I loved hiking in my new Tubbs Altitude 30 snowshoes. They did great! And the climb was a nice experience.

After driving by the trailhead many times, finally did the quick climb up this mountain on a drive home from Lake Placid. All I remember is that it was muddy.
