Excellent Short Hike  Sucess!

Hiked with 2 of my kids. New trailhead with a DEC sign and large parking lot makes this trail easier to find now. Level stretch through the woods for a bit at first, but once you get to the scrambling, it's a lot of fun. Trail can be tough to spot at times, but we made it without too much difficulty. Great hike!

Rock Scramblin'  Sucess!

Trail register but no markers? Great hike on exposed ledges, views from false summit and summit were splendid.

beautiful  Sucess!

Exact date is a guess. My brother and I went there at the start of a 5-day backpack. We were almost annihilated by a logging truck driven on the wrong side of the road. (Old Adirondack saying: logging trucks always have the right of way.) I was reminded of this peak by puma concolor's name change.

Catamount  Sucess!

Agreed with difficulty finding the trailhead and with the abundant rock faces. I wandered off the traditional route and found some good 3rd and 4th class slabs to the summit.

Rock playground  Sucess!

It took us a little while to find the trailhead because it was not well-marked on the road. This was one of the most fun hikes I've had in the Daks. The last third of the trail runs through a maze of boulders and slabs. One could spend all day bouldering & practicing 4th class moves. The chimney was pretty cool too. A classic day out despite the fact that it was so cloudy we coudn't even see Whiteface.

Route Climbed: Path from Forestdale Rd Date Climbed: August 19, 2002  Sucess!

At the pastor’s retreat I agreed to take a group climbing. I had wanted to check out Catamount even though it is not a 46er peak. It is one of the most delightful hikes in the Adirondacks from start to finish. All of us had a good time and we were blessed that the rain held off until we got down a very steep section and down to our car.
