    Alicia Amaral reviewed Danny on Memorial National Recreation Trail

    about 1 year ago

    Great trail, however due to winter storms, the trail was closed to the peak. We went as far as we could and then ran into some snow pack and downed trees. This is a great climb with no bouldering or rock scrambles. It is a beautiful hike that will get your heart and blood pumping. CARRY BEAR SPRAY and be aware and alert to wildlife. We ran into a very large (mama) brown bear and her two cubs that wanted to come up the same trail we were trying to descend. We ended up heading back UP the trail and scrambling down through some trees and brush to access a logging road that (thankfully) ran parallel to the Danny On Trail. Great for a quick(ish) hike - didn't take very long for us to complete. Maybe a couple hours.

    Great trail - I think describing a trail as "Easy, Moderate or Hard" is all relevant. We completed this trail in a little under three hours. It was a gorgeous trail, with limited views until you get to the lookout and then to the summit. We had a beautiful day to hike, but definitely needed some warmer clothes at the summit, as the stuff we wore was wet with sweat and it got quite chilly while standing still taking the necessary peak photos. I would rate this trail as moderate - it will get your blood pumping but it is worth it. Check out the cabin on your way up/down and take a minute to read all the notes and scribbles inside left behind by other hikers.

    Alicia Amaral reviewed Race Brook Falls and Mount Everett

    Good trail, skipped the lower falls trail and went left to upper falls. Immediately, the incline begins and is a fairly challenging grade in a short(ish) distance. It's about two miles to the AT - not many views other than the waterfall. Hiked to Mt Everett (AT north) and to what use to be the location for the fire lookout. The tower is no longer there and the peak really doesn't allow for much viewing. If you continue north about another two mins, there's a nice rock ledge lookout that offers a nice view. If you're setting out in search of beautiful landscape views, this isn't the trail for that. But if you love waterfalls and a good climb, this was perfect.

    Great Trail - is definitely a challenge. Many switchbacks. We did it on a fairly warm day - 80+ degrees. Started at Going to the Sun Road and made it to the Chalet. Took a few hours with multiple 3-5 min breaks along the way. Gorgeous waterfall on your right on the way up that you can hear the majority of your climb. Snow pack about half a mile from the chalet but many people had packed down a footpath through it. Trail opened back up for a little way, then more deep snow all the way to the Chalet and beyond. Wanted to do the Gunsight pass but were strongly advised not to unless we had an ice pick. This is a day hike and not for the faint of heart. The bugs (May Flies/Chiggers?) were pretty atrocious at the Chalet. Bug spray def a must - not failproof tho. Walked away with a few bites. Ran into three mountain goats at the Chalet. Workers at the Chalet were awesome - friendly and knowledgeable. The trek down was FAST. Took maybe a third of the time it took us to go up. Make sure you have some snacks, ample water, bug spray and sunscreen if you tend to burn.

    Alicia Amaral reviewed Avalanche Lake via the Trail of the Cedars

    Gorgeous trail and well maintained. The waterfalls at the beginning are a small treat to the payoff in the end. The trail had a lot of people and families on it. But it was beautiful nonetheless. I didn't find this trail terribly difficult - would say it is on the easier side of moderate. Many deer in the area. We were told that there was bear activity as we entered the trail, but did not have any encounters. Avalanche Lake is absolutely stunning and awe-inspiring.

    Very easy trail. Had a lot of people on it and was super quick. There is a definite beauty in the trees and the boardwalk through them. I would consider this more of a stroll after completing the Avalanche Trail to Avalanche Lake.

    Alicia Amaral reviewed Apgar Lookout Trail

    over 1 year ago

    Stunning views from the top. This is rated as a moderate trail and I agree with the difficulty level. We saw many deer and a partridge during our trek. Make sure you have the essentials - bear spray, a warm shirt and a light raincoat. Hiked this in late June and found all of the sights absolutely breathtaking. If visiting Montana / Glacier, make sure this trek is on your list.
