Adirondacks: Haystack, Basin, Saddleback Loop Hike

by CRiedel2 » Sat Aug 01, 2015 10:26 pm

I know this would be a long day hike from the Garden (Haystack, Basin, Saddleback loop). I'm wondering if it's more interesting/challenging going up the Phelps trail to Haystack first and making a counterclockwise loop, or going up the Orbed trail to Saddleback first and making a clockwise loop hike. I'd much rather do more steep scrambling going up if there's more one direction than the other. Thanks for any opinions.
