Dan waited for Jason and I to tag Couch on this trip. He was our guide and opted to take a nap while we journeyed out to get this one.

OnagerCouchsachraga Peak  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 10, 2013


Summited Couchsachraga Peak 3820' during a weekend backpacking trip. Our group stayed at the Santanoni Lean-To after the hike in hiking a few miles on Friday, we summited all 3 peaks of the Santanoni Range on Saturday under excellent weather, stayed the night again and turned in on Sunday morning. The heard paths are in good shape, but they are muddy as can be and can be difficult to navigate.

tigerlillyPresident's weekend  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Feb 16, 2013


beautiful conditions. fresh powder. trail packed down by snow shoers ahead of us. blue sky. no wind. a gorgeous hike quite peaceful. not the drudge hike I thought it was going to be. Had a banana Gu shot when we got to the swamp. that helped. Once you reach the swamp, you are half way...then 3 false peaks. It's a good trail for short people. Got slapped square in the eyeball by a unforgiving spruce. Wear goggles or something!

Climbed after Panther before Santi. Kind of a thankless peak.

I reiterate mavso, lonely little outpost in the ADKs with glimpses into some very remote sections of the park.

EnapaiFinal peak of the range - the normal way from Times Square  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 5, 2010


Skies looked threatening, but being so close, did not want to pass on the chance to be done with the range. Great day with my brother and sister (who did not go over to Couch). Never saw a drop of rain. Very dry, found no water till back down at Panther Brook - even the bog was tame. This leaves Seymour, Allen, and Dix for my 46.

This was a long day hiking Santanoni and Panther the same day.The summit of coochie was surprisingly packed with people.For being far and remote this one grabbed attention.The summit rock is only ,say 12x12ft,but held 15 people.I thought the veiws were ok too....Jim W

AjellodudeBradley Pond to Times Square  Sucess!


This was my first winter backpacking trip. I realized how much I loved snowshoeing through the trails and up mountains, but how much I hate freezing at camp. Great mountain... long, rewarding trek to get there

Date Climbed: Sep 20, 2008


Wow, this one was a pain. A lot of hearbreaking down hill sections, a lot of mud, and a lot of branches in the face. It felt like I got in a catfight. But the peak offered nice views. We did this round trip ( from times square ) in 2 hours.

TahawusCouchsachraga Peak  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 12, 2006


Climbed via the Duck Hole Trail from Tahawus. A long and muddy approach. The herd path was so narrow and muddy it was sometimes very difficult to negotiate. Good weather and suprisingly decent views from the summit made this "fake" 4000-footer worthwhile.

Climbed with Paul. Harder than I thought. Lots of spruce traps and getting whipped in the face by rogue tree branches. Nice sunshine at the top though. #27/46

It's a great little mountain in the middle of nowhere. Perfect for those who like mud more than crowds.

Why people think this is a bad mt. I don,t know.Eighteen yrs ago this was one of my favorite mts.No heards of people,winning kids,craping dogs and the like.When you sit atop "Couch" you are in true wilderness,enjoy it. Just don,t go "Peak Baggin".My son and I will be doing Couchsachraga this summer and I can,t wait !

I thought it was a great hike. I thought the views back to Santanoni were great. Lots of flying bloodsuckers on top though. Incredible thunderstorm on the hike out.
