SMichelleADog's First Hike
Date Climbed: Jul 28, 2015


We took Roaring Brooke Trail by accident with our collie/shepherd mix and it was a longer hike for the pup's first time. Lots of forest, forest and forest! A few glimpses during the last portion, but really nothing until you get to the summit (I assume). We had to turn around when we were nearly there as our dog was too tired to complete the scrambling near the summit. Not a trail I would recommend for first timers, dog or human. Still a great day in the Dacks, regardless! Maybe will try the other trail someday and reach the finish line!

Little chilly (4f) but the lack of wind and beautiful views more than made up for it.

Date Climbed: Sep 8, 2014


The views from this trail are the best I have experienced. As you ascend you take in the cliffs of Round Mountain, then the Dix range and Great range begin to creep slowly into view. What a great place on a 68 degree day!

technicolorNHZander Scott/Ridge trail  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 23, 2014


Steep but easy to reach for an Adirondack high peak due to close proximity to a road. Two hours and five minutes from trailhead to summit with plenty of exposed bedrock and bugs. I hit RRP afterwards.

This peak offers beautiful view over the high peaks and is somewhat of a short hike for high peaks standard. Worth the hike for sure.

Date Climbed: Oct 28, 2012


Hiked Giant Mountain 4627' via the Ridge trail route. Moderately easy hike due to its proximity to the parking area. The weather was overcast with light rain here and there and low visibility on the summit. Proceeded to Rocky Peak Ridge by decending from the summit of Giant down a very steep trail.

Date Climbed: Oct 1, 2012


Wet week in the ADK's but this was a nice hike for the weather. In a cloud on top, but the clouds opened up on the way down for some great views and great skies.
