I was hoping for a better view towards Lake Champlain. Trees blocked most of the East facing view. However the view in towards the high peaks was pretty nice. This was a pretty short hike from the road as far as the Adirondacks go.

Finally hiked up Giant today. The day was perfect too. Lots of people there, but friendly and spaced out along the trails. Did Rocky Peak Ridge also. Much quieter over there, so I snuck in a little shut eye and enjoyed the breeze for a little while.

Winter ascent. Crampons were necessary and an axe was useful for setting at certain points.

it was fall on the bottom and winter on the top. in mid October.the hike was fairly easy but the ice and snow slowed us down on top,and heading down towards rocky peak was interesting.. we are getting crampons now..but it has awesome views!

Nice winter hike up Ridge Trail...over to Rocky Peak Ridge, and then back down Roaring Brook. Cloudy days, so no views:(

Most poignant was a lonely backpack over top in 1975. Loved camping at the Washbowl or on Roaring Brook.

NarendraEagle Slide


Eagle Slide is the Classic class 3 scramble on Giant and one of the better hikes in the dacks. Sweeping views of the entire Great Range when you exit the Brook onto the slide. We included Rocky Ridge Peak for good measure and followed it to Route 9 (two car shuttle). A long and rewarding day.

What a gorgeous mountain and nice hike. This is a gem of a place to find. We were perfectly clear until we got to the summit, then the clouds and rain came, but as soon as we left the summit it cleared up again! Oh well, it was still beautiful!

Climbed with Rocky Peak Ridge via Giant Mountain Trail from Route 73. Had great views of the Dix Range and Noonmark for most of the way up. The summit ledges were crowded but offered an opportunity to cool off in the shade. Rocky Peak Ridge was only an easy two miles out of the way.
