Summited East Dix Mountain 4012' during a 2 night backpacking trip in the Dix Range. After summiting its neighbor Sout Dix Mountain, we continued on the path from South Dix down to the col and the up East Dix Mountain. The summit provided excellent views. A nice place for a lunch break. We then retraced the trail back to the summit of South Dix Mountain in order to reach Hough Peak.

In June '78 I knocked-off 5 peaks with my Scout Troop and a great leader that hooked me on wilderness adventures (Dix, East Dix, South Dix, Hough and McComb)

Hiked up the slide via the herd path from Rt. 73. Excellent hike, and the slide is a lot of fun, although much more difficult near the top. Views are gorgeous - weather was mostly overcast but clear and calm. Would NOT recommend bringing dogs up the slide. We had a lab and a golden that successfully made it, although there were moments where we were dragging them and pretty sure we could go no further. We descended via the herd path to the side of the slide (didn't know it was an option beforehand), and out by the same route we came in. Spent one night alongside the trail on the way in; trail includes some beautiful camp spots along the river for backpackers.

Did this as part of a one-day Dix Range Traverse. Came up the Macomb Slide and then down the herd path over South Dix. Beautiful sunny day with a few clouds here and there. Very nice views from East Dix. Forgot to go past the summit to check out the slide, oops!

This was another ADK adventure.We climbed the whole Dix range on the 4th of July.It was a very cold 35degrees that day with on and off rain with high winds.The highlight of East Dix was a dog rescue that I got to participate in.The dog was a yellow lab named "Maxx" who had been stuck up on a ledge for a few days.We found him and his owner was as greatful as he.For the peak itself,with all the excitement I did enjoy some of the open rock outcrops along the way.The summit was socked in preventing any marvelous veiws,but it was still a highlighted adventure....JW

Warm temps and fresh snow made for an interesting day. No views to speak of, so a return in nicer weather is probably in order.

There was a light breeze at the top, where we changed into drier clothes. I notice "Grace" on the marker at the top. This was the first time I'd heard about it's naming, or re-naming (I live in Oregon now and haven't been back in a while; probably not since she passed away). Is it an official renaming?

Climbed with Macomb, South Dix and Hough via the Dix Trail from the Elk Lake Lodge. A long but easy ridge walk led to East Dix's fogged in summit. Eventually the clouds burned off and we could see Hough across the valley and Spotted Mountain further along the ridge.

Fourth peak in a five peak string. Enjoy the sunshine for just a few minutes at the summit. Neat summit! The sun didn't stay out for long and neither did we. We were soon off on our way to Macomb. #35/46! : )

Part of an ADK backpack. Tough going up the deep and unconsolidated snow on the slide- avalanche conditions. But we made it to the summit where we signed in and also to South Dix.

The farthest one out you have to reach for to bag all these peaks in the Dix Range. Some nice boulders and views for pics.
