This was a great hike to the summit. View were amazing starting about 2/3 up the mountain. The trail is short (only 3 miles one way) but rises at over 1000 feet/mile requiring a constant effort to ascend, as well as descend. Beware of coming...More
This was my second experience in Adirondack (after Mount Marcy). Not Comparable At All!
We got there around 8am and was on the summit before noon. First part is ascending fast but not difficult. The whole hike took us 5:40" including 30" resting time.
We took the Roaring Brook Trail on Memorial Day Saturday and got to the parking lot around 7:00 am and there were only a few spots left. We knew it would be crowded and it was. The trail starts with an immediate ascent but you...More
We hiked this trail in July of 2017. Our daughter was 11 and our son was 9 at the time. We got a late start and took a lot of breaks including about 20 min at the summit and round trip it took us about...More
We started out way too late so we had to park nearly half a mile from the Roaring Brook parking lot. No biggie in itself but we should have realized then that the trail was going to be way too busy.
The trail itself was...More
Climbed Giant in August using the primary trail. This is the steeper, shorter trail. Trail markers are great on this trail. I do work out regularly and was able to climb up in 2.5 hours and down in 2 hours. It was a challenge because...More
My friends and I did Cascade mountain the year before and decided to try Giant next. It was definitely more challenging as it is pretty steep all the way up. Prepare to climb over some large rocks and there is not much flat ground, pretty...More
we took the walking trail into the mountains and found a beautiful waterfall that we could walk across the rocks to get a better view of. So pretty, definitely worth the "hike". Scenery is beautiful all around.
This was my 6th high peak and it was definitely a challenging one. I was with 3 other ladies and we all found the ascent to be a pretty intense work-out. Fairly steep throughout but the last 45 minutes we gained elevation very quickly and...More
We took the blueberry cobbler trail, so did Rocky Peak Ridge first and then on to Giant Mountain.
It took us 8 hours (including breaks and lunch) to reach the Giant Mountain summit using the blueberry trail.
It was extremely long and difficult. Took us...More
