It was a very soggy day in May. I hiked to Thomas Mountain first, then followed the blue trail to Cat Mountain, and took the yellow trail back. The blue trail is much more scenic and fun than the yellow and orange trails.
This is a perfect hike for those new to climbing. I haven't done a hike that gives you better views for the difficulty of the climb.
Second trip to the preserve. Trail was wide and easy to follow. Great views of Lake George from the summit.
