    Catherine Abida reviewed Severence Mountain

    8 months ago

    This is a short hike with some steep and rocky spots, but the views from the top definitely make up for the bit of work it takes to get there. the trail is one of the easier ones to follow that I have hiked in the Adirondacks. Nice and wide and well marked

    Arrived ready for a nice fall hike and the trail and parking lot were closed. Bummer! Went to Severance Mountain instead, 10-15 minutes away which was pretty equivalent in distance and difficulty.

    Catherine Abida reviewed Plotter Kill Preserve Trail

    over 1 year ago

    There are a few access points to this preserve. On Sunday 11/27 I decided to try the lower section from the lot at Lower Gregg Road, just above the fork with East Gregg Road. This parking lot was very quiet and felt like a different place than when I have used the Mariaville Road and Coplon Road entrances. The lower part of the preserve may not have waterfalls as spectacular as the upper section, but it does have some really beautiful cascades and smaller falls that are worth checking out. In a couple of locations we followed yellow trails down to the stream bed and were not disappointed. One even led to a seasonal side stream that had a waterfall flowing and there was a small cascade on the main Plotter Kill right next to it. It was just my boyfriend and me enjoying this lovely spot, probably because it is remote and was in late November. If you want a more peaceful experience, definitely consider visiting the lower part of the preserve.

    I have visited a number of times, always during the summer. The only time I didn't enjoy it was when I forgot the insect repellent. Be warned! Can be very buggy.

    This is a great place to observe wildlife as there are ponds, swampy areas and of course the river. I have seen frogs, butterflies, bees, dragonflies, herons, kingfishers, turtles and flocks of turkeys here.

    Catherine Abida reviewed Rattlesnake Cliffs Trail to Aunt Jenny Trail

    almost 2 years ago

    Went yesterday with 2 friends. The views from Rattlesnake Cliffs are fantastic, but keep in mind that to reach Rattlesnake Cliffs, the trail goes beyond what is shown on the AllTrails map, There are 2 places to get views from the top. There is a trail off to the left as you walk up that is labeled "vista" that is one of the spots. The other one is available if you continue straight for a short distance. Check out both, as they offer views in different directions.

    FYI - Rattlesnake Cliffs are closed for the peregrine falcon nesting season, so be sure to visit after August 1.

    I have hiked this trail on numerous occasions and find myself always wanting to come back. I recommend this trail to anyone who is looking for a mountain with fantastic Adirondack views, but either wants or needs something that is on the easier side. The last time I hiked here, it was a warmer day, in the 80's but even with the warm weather, and some of our crew having health issues, we did not struggle at all and truly enjoyed our day. Highly recommended!
