    Amb Herr reviewed Basin Cascade Trail

    5 months ago

    Hiked this yesterday with my DH! White Mountain National Forest is one of our favorite places to explore so we enjoyed this hike. The trail up is a bit steep and muddy/slippery in many areas but plenty of areas to grab on to a tree or rest if needed. We plan to come back sometime in the Spring and go all the way to Lonesome Lake. It was a beautiful day and it was so nice to be able to step off the trail here and there and enjoy the beautiful and serene waters with different views each time! :-)

    Hiked this with my DH today. Short and steep but there were pleasant wildflowers near the top and a decent view. A good hike if you want a good exercise on the calves! :-P

    Hiked this May 26 with my DH. Not strenuous, just a quiet, wooded hike the whole way until you get to the pond. There is also a primitive campsite close by. Bring your insect protection! ;-)

    Hiked this yesterday with my DH and BIL. A quick hike even though I am five months pregnant to a nice view for minimal effort! A few short steep sections but nothing overly strenuous - Made it up and down in less than an hour. This is a nice wooded hike to do if you're looking for something short and sweet...also great to add to your Chester Challenge checklist! ;-)

    One of my favorite, short hikes in the Adirondacks and for the Chester Challenge! Celebrated National Trails Day by hiking this today with family for my third time (twice during the warm months and once snowshoeing this past Winter). Not strenuous with serene views along the way. Great for families with small children and older relatives! :-)

    Hiked this on a beautiful Spring day with my teenage SILs! We made it up with plenty of rests in about 32 minutes and back down in probably half of that. A bit strenuous in parts but also a good amount of switchbacks. The view at the top was really worth the climb and measures up to the reviews! It was also nice to enjoy the benches and take in the greenery and bird sounds on the way up as well as the peaceful scenery at the top. Don't forget to wear protection from those black flies this time of year! :-)

    Such beautiful views in a serene environment! My DH and I leisurely strolled the trails taking in the pleasant music Springtime offers! All in all, a nice simple stroll with plenty of spots to sit and take in the sounds and views. Would love to come back and enjoy a picnic by the water and finish the other trails on the other side of the road (Don't miss those!) :-)

    This wooded hike was rewarding in the end with a solemn and serene view! Took my DH and I about 50 minutes to ascend and about the same to descend. The main picture for this trail was not the view we experienced but maybe that would be seen taking the other trail (took Old Farm Rd.). Since this is a wooded hike, it would be more enjoyable to revisit this in the Summer for the moving and less slippery creek flows or the Fall for the picturesque foliage! If you plan to do this hike anytime soon/this Winter, wear microspikes or waterproof boots with good tread - dried leaves can be deceiving! ;-)

    Not a long or overly strenuous hike for a lovely view! Hiked this with my DH today and enjoyed the trail to ourselves. Took us about 50mins to reach the top. Loved how the clouds made the mountains look so blue and am looking forward to hiking this again as this would be an excellent leaf-peeping venture in the peak of Fall! ;-)

    Pretty steep for the first half mile but after that it gets a bit easier. The views at the top are blue-hued and beautiful, also giving you a nice view of the interstate. ;-) Only giving this a two as I did enjoy the view but do not see myself doing this hike again.

    Such a nice, peaceful, and quiet hike in the woods that gives you serene views to finish! A must-do for those looking to get out but don't want a busy setting. This would be ideal to snowshoe in the winter as well! :-)

    Amb Herr reviewed OK Slip Falls Trail

    about 1 year ago

    A very easy, long walk in the woods that leaves you with great views! Didn't expect the waterfall to be so full this time of year so it was a nice treat. Packed a lunch and really enjoyed taking in the views with my hiking buddy. Just a friendly suggestion - cross the road from the parking lot and walk along the road there to the trail sign. First walk to what we thought was the entrance to the trailhead was not what we thought it was and can be easily missed on the other side of the road. Looking forward to returning to this hike and also hiking the other trails! :-)

    A bit nerve-wracking at first but totally worth the experience! Absolutely beautiful from the top to the bottom to the top again. My DH and I were able to watch the sunrise from two different views and it was a great experience and a great way to experience the canyon and what it has to offer! :-)

    A unique trail and a great taste of what Lassen Volcanic has to offer! Great views the whole way through. Be careful on the edges! ;-)
