on The Great Eddy
2 days ago

walking

Starting at the Pete Debe Park (by walking bridge) is an exercise trail with 5 activities for 0.5 miles of a paved trail with great views of the Gorge. At the end of this trail the Philbrick Trail begins to the right of the Water Treatment facility and to the left along the river is the canoe portage, if keep following the river have great views of the Eddy on a small beach (to dangerous to swim).

More like a cross between rock scrambling and Jr mountain climbing. Near the top we were supposed to be able to squeeze through a small cave with iron rungs to climb through the top. When we arrived the cave entrance was frozen solid.

We had already climbed 1.5 miles straightish up and down was going to be really hard. Loop trail recommended going down on different trail.

Happened to arrive at same time as 2 young guys that had done an alternate summit to get around the cave. This meant scaling a rock face and squeezing through a tight rock crevasse/shimminging on our butts with our legs dangling over the side of a sharp drop overlooking the valley.

Meanwhile, 4 more young girls arrived so we all did it together. One of the guys was an EMT and I did a small side trip with the experienced climber to check out a tiny cave with a view to the valley below. He was really a great instructor and very helpful so I felt he comfortable trusting him over this really challenging/ risky spot.

Did it slow and steady with the guys helping all 6 of us girls. It was really such a small distance but it ended up taking us over an hour to get above the cave.

I'm 48 years old and I kicked that mountains ass! I'm going to be really sore the next couple days. I did take a pretty nasty fall, but landed amazingly without any more than a bruised forearm.

Pretty. But, heavily-trafficked. And, while flat, be prepared for varied terrain -- dirt paths, boulders, log walkways.

Great hike with incredible views all along the way. Pack some water and snacks. We had water but were surprised that we could not find water at the top for the trip back down.

Great way to start the day with an easy hike with great views. Be sure to follow it up with popovers and tea! And hit more trails in the afternoon. We did another easy hike at the Wonderland Trail and then hit Cadillac Mt the next day. Not for lightweights!

on Gulf Hagas Trail

hiking

What a phenomenal, scenic hike and swim. These are some of the coolest waterfalls I've ever seen, and swimming in them on a hot day was amazing. The trail is rated hard, but only constitutes that for a few sections of scramble. Upper body strength and stable footing is required to get back OUT of a few of the falls, but beyond that, a totally pleasant, moderate hike.

Will definitely be back with friends.

Not a bad trail if you like to exert yourself however wasn't much fun in sunny 80 degree heat.
