Great hike with family and dog .... The view is probably better when there are no leaves on the trees. A few steep spots for a good leg workout .

on Great Pond Mountain

Great views from the summit and all around. Lots of wildlife to stumble upon and catch photos of =) Very clean and well maintained trails with fool proof directions on maneuvering the mountain. Definitely worth the early morning wake up!!

Amazing Hike, Make sure to reserve Parking!

Headed up Helen Taylor to Pamola Peak... Which fore warning descending and ascending back up to get to knifes edge was one of the most challenging spots just because you pretty much are rock climbing at points. No complaints but it is still towards the beginning of your hike, so if your prepared and have plenty of water it's weighing you down a bit through here..

I am weary about heights but love adrenaline so was pretty weary about knifes edge. But honestly it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. There were a couple spots that left me sliding on my butt, saying some words my mother probably wouldn't have approved of, but all worth it. About half way across it got foggy and white socked. No complaints from the guy who doesn't like heights. We made good time when we couldn't see the almost 5000 feet down haha. Not to mention the second half of knifes edge was much easier. Looking back at what we just came through, made me very grateful we took it in the direction we did.

We were going to take Hamlin Peak down, heard it had some epic views. But with the amount of fog, and the 2 hour drive home, we decided to save it for next time because we WILL be back.

Ended up taking the saddle trail back down, wasn't bad at all. Made it beside Basin Pond and to the lean-toos where the ranger warned of a young bear in the area. Well needless to say 100 yards down the trail we found him

The trail was very well taken care of. Very nice inlet views with interesting geology. Didn't see many birds, but in the few hours we were there we saw four deer, two raccoons and a bunch of fish jumping out of the water.

on Cascade Falls Trail

hiking

Enjoyed the beautiful waterfall;though the fact that we haven't gotten a whole lot of rain lately was apparent. Short but nice and peaceful hike, didn't like how the trails aren't marked very well. Good Saturday afternoon activity for my 9 year old daughter and I.

This is a great hike if you need a little post/pre work exercise. It's just enough to get your heart rate going if you keep a good pace but short enough to do as a quick workout. The views are nice as well.
