Climbed the slide from north, then went on to other Dixes. Wasn't much of a trail back then; bad blow-downs in one section.
Rugged peak with a cool slide. Did this with the rest of the Dix Range.
I has been a while since I've been to Macomb. The trail was pretty wet. Our dog (Guinness) flushed a rabbit on the way back that was about as big as she is.
Climbed with South Dix, East Dix and Hough via the Dix Trail from the Elk Lake Lodge. Going up the slide was a blast. Once we were over around 3000' a sea of clouds was at our feet. The summit boasted some great views of surrounding High Peaks.
Finished the Dix Range by summiting Macomb. Excited to have made all 5 peaks! Tough trip. Exhausting 22 hours in total. STEEP slide on the way out! #36/46! : )
5 out of 5
Good hikes both times with friends
Tough hike with all the blown down trees on the herd path. Slide climb was most enjoyable section of mountain I've climbed in the ADK.
Jayne fell in the streambed and yelled she was telling her mother that I was trying to kill her. Took her awhile to chill out. She was pissy because she wanted to follow a false herdpath. Sometimes the women are smarter. Sometimes not.
On Sept 16, 2001, I drove to the Elk Lake trailhead to climb the Dix Mtn Range. I started out by climbing the Macomb Slide. The blowdown was annoying but the slide climb was wonderful. This is the view of Elk Lake from the Macomb summit.
