54 degrees and misty in August??? Climbed into low-hanging clouds during my hike on Cascade and Porter. Awesome hike, though. Just wish the views were better. Maybe next time.

One of the muddiest hikes I did. I got an early start and wasn't rewarded at all, because of cloudy skies. I was coming back down and herds of people were heading up to Cascade I imagine. It was weird seeing all these little kids, because I was thinking they are not going to enjoy hiking through puddles of mud, only to be rewarded with zero views.

good to bag while doing Cascade. the views are about the same except Porter yields a nice view of Cascade with Whiteface in the background. Easy day.

Fun peak, I'm just not used to SO many people. Very crowded but both peaks were fun and easy.

Climbed via the Porter Mountain Trail from the Garden. Had blueberries along the hike for almost the whole way. The summit offered some respite from the crowds on Cascade and the views were just as good as the ones on its more popular neighbor.

Did Nippletop and Dial the day before, headed to Porter, then on to Cascade. Made for a full weekend! Beautiful day in the ADK's. Probably one of the best ever. Sunny, mild, barely a breath of wind. Enjoyed phenomenal views from Porter--icy and a bit slippery on top. Headed to Cascade from there. 18/46

A hop, skip, and slide on ice from Cascade. The summit is surprisingly windy considering how many trees are around.

I'm probably one of the few who didn't do this in tandem with Cascade. We climbed from route 73 after canceling Big Slide because the weather forecast said peaks in the clouds. Less crowded than Cascade and the views to the South are almost as nice. Bagged Cascade again on the way back.

the day I climbed this was Black Fly day. Counted over 50 bites on the back of my neck alone when we finished. So needless to say not my favorite hike

Date Climbed: May 11, 2002
Climbed this mountain a bunch of times now. Its usually much less busy than its close neighbor Cascade. So if you want a little more solitude head for Porter.
