Cascade is better for the bald summit, but combining the two is easy enough. People who want a taste of what the hike peaks are like should definitely combine the two, it should make you want to do more hiking.

One hour and forty three minutes from the TH on the road. The view isn't as good as the one on Cascade but it's still a lot of bang for the buck.

Done fairly quickly after Cascade. Had poor visibility that day so could not soak in good views from either, good time nonetheless.

The easiest of my 46er hikes....#4 & 5. Tons of people due to the proximity to the road. The views here are astounding!

jtellisFirst ADK peak in four years  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 15, 2014


My first Adirondacks peak in four years since returning back east. Extremely muddy and slick with ice. Headed up here, then went up to the summit of Cascade.

Not a bad climb despite icy trails and winter rain. Couldnt make the summit due to a bad fall by my gf, read Cascade Attempt x2 for details. Beautiful and moderate hike despite the inability to summit. Look fwd to a quick day hike this spring.

This is a nice peak to be on. Nice view of Cascade mountain and not a long ways from Cascade either. Must do if you are already on the trail.

Procceded to hike Porter Mountain 4059' after summiting and enjoying the view Cascade Mountain had to offer. We headed back down about 0.3 miles from the summit of Cascade and then proceeded 0.8 miles to the summit of Porter Mountain. The trail was very easy going but offered some challenges due to an icey trail and deep snow to our left and right of the iced over trail, not to mention our lack of microspikes/crampons. Regardless, the hike was very easy and after taking some pictures on the summit we headed back down Cascade and hiked the last half of the trail back to the Cascade Pitchoff on Rt. 73 in the dark (Glad I remembered my headlamp).

Coupled with Cascade climb - takes about 30 minutes to summit from the trail junction. Not worth it by itself, but worth the sidetrip from a Cascade climb. Couple good views, though repeats of Cascade's

A frigid hike with 50mph winds beating us the whole time....completely worth it!

jpbourqueCascade to Marcy Airfield  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Nov 19, 2011
We had 2 cars (party of 7). Left one at Marcy airfield and started hiking to Cascade (2nd time for me) from the 73. Extremely windy on top (60-70 mph gust), but beautiful sunny and hot for this time of year. We had lunch at the junction between Cascade and Porter. We then hiked to Porter, by Blueberry Mt and down to Marcy Airfield. The trail between Porter and Blueberry was maintained but it was clear it isn't a frequently travelled route. The views all around were beautiful.
