Hiked out from Johns brook lean too’s. Good hike, had older kids on their first backpacking trip. Colder at the top than expected in August.

Great hike, amazing views, and a lot of fun scrambles on this trail.

outstanding views at summit. Trails well travelled. Spikes essential No need for snowshoes

Very icy, especially after recent melt has re-frozen. Used crampons for the first 3/4 and snowshoes for the remainder. Ice pick recommended. I chose to descend via roaring brook.

Climbed this with my youngest daughter during a heatwave. It was awesome!! But, only if you prepare for the conditions. Layers and water and dry clothes to change into. Even in the heatwave, it was very windy on the top and we were cold in our sweaty clothes. She was 12 and did just fine with this hike. Great views and plenty of other hikers to share experience with.

Today did Ridge trail up Giant Mountain . Needed snowshoes going up and halfway down . The trail is steep at certain heights . Nice trail would do it again.

Beautiful views! One of my favorites!! ❤️⛰

The closest I’ve been to rock climbing without actually rock climbing. I’ve only done four of the 46 high peaks, but this was definitely my favorite so far. There were constant challenges which kept things interesting.

This hike was a ton of fun! Completed it on 12/2/17. Decided to do Sawteeth as well. Our route went as follows: parked at the Ausable Club and hiked up Lake Road to the dam at the Northern end of Lower Ausable Lake where we crossed the bridge and began our ascent. Hiked up to the trail junction where we turned left to first summit Sawteeth. Around 8" of snow at the summit there. Then, we headed back to the split and went up toward Gothics via Pyramid. On this trail there was over a foot of snow the entire way (already!!) with drifts up to 2 feet. Made some hot cocoa up tip and had a near-death experience as I slipped and fell and slid at the peak of Gothics. If it weren't for a rock sitting on the summit I would've slid right off the peak. Word to the wise: ALWAYS WEAR SPIKES AT EXPOSED SUMMITS. Overall a great hike that ended up being about 18 miles round-trip.

Took the Three Brothers up to the top. The trail was great and the views were amazing. I would suggest stopping along the way and enjoying the views from each of the brothers. They all offer different, but beautiful, views.

One of the most beautiful hikes I've done!!! Isn't the easiest but far from the hardest.

3 rd high peak for me. Loved it

Just did the summit of Noonmark out and back. Awesome view for a hike less than 4 hours. We went on an overcast fall day and it was absolutely stunning view of Keene Valley and the High Peaks. Hike definitely had my heart beating - it was a very steep climb to the top.

East River Trail is clear all the way up with the exception of a couple downed trees, but nothing that you can't walk around. No spikes needed until really the last few hundred meters of trail up to Indian Head. Beautiful trail and great view from the top.

A bit of ice and snow. Excellent views of the high peaks.

not the easiest with icy conditions , beautiful waterfalls on the way up to the main trail.

hiked with my daughter a few years ago in august. some challenges along the way, but nothing we couldn't handle. sweet views of the great range in the distance and of chapel pond below.

La difficulté ici est la distance. Nous sommes dans la soixantaine et l avons fait en 9h30. Une vue incroyable ! Un must.

Tough climb this time of year because of icy conditions near top. Also very easy to miss trail to roaring brook, which I did and then must take trail over nubble to get back. Definitely adds to challenge but some great views

It was a tough climb, but we had awesome views most of the way up. Check out my full write up with pictures and things to look out for.

sawteeth pyramid gothics and armstrong loop. awesome. left parking lot at 830am and back to parking lot at 6pm. forgot to turn off recorder when back at parking

Worth every second!!!!

Unbelievable day and a beautiful hike. Remarkable vista at the top. Relatively easy hike that gets a little steep at the end. 3.2 miles in going through Round Pond. Great family hike.

Quite the challenge but worth every step !

I enjoyed the hike but the shuttle wasn't running on 10/21/2017. This adds 1.2 miles each way from the closest parking when garden is full. Please plan on this if you are looking at doing this hike soon.

Beautiful day and very nice hike. The whole family did it just fine even my 6 year old baby girl didn't have any issues. Get your kids off the electronics and out in the woods for a change

beautiful hike , I would do this again .
