    Darrel Bibicheff reviewed Basin Mountain Saddleback Mountain Loop via Phelps Trail

    25 days ago

    Just finished this trail over a 2 day trip. Hiked in about 3.6 miles and camped near Johns Brook Lodge. Then did the 8 mile loop, packed the tents and hiked out. The trail was very easy to follow and views at the top of both mountains were amazing. I ended up doing the loop the other direction than the one described here, so you summit the taller mountain second. It was very steep going down Saddleback mountain so there were a lot of fun rock scrambling opportunities. The trail was quite muddy so gaiters would be recommended. Overall definitely a great hike and a great physical challenge.

    Did this hike the previous summer. I would say this is definitely the most fun and challenging way to the summit as well as rewarding. The rock scramble was a ton of fun and a great way to get the adrenaline pumping. Hike was very easy to follow as there were paint marks on the mountain. Views at the top of the mountain were amazing and made the difficulty of this hike totally worth it. I recommend coming down the Tuckerman ravine trial as this trail is too steep to go back down it. Took about 7 hours round trip but also because of one hour spent on the summit. Overall an awesome way to get to the top of the highest mountain in the Northeast.

    Did this a while back in September and forgot to review. Great hike and relatively easy gradient to the summit. The total hike took around 5.5 hours to complete. The views from the summit tower looked amazing and you were able to see all the various colors of the trees in the distance as it was the beginning of fall. Trail is well marked and very easy to follow and a rewarding way to summit West Virginia’s highpoint.

    This definitely was a tough one for a day hike. Legs completely sore the day after, but extremely worth it. Most of the trail going up you’re surrounded by dense forests and will be going through many switchbacks. Once you get closer to the parking area at the top, the trail gets milder and easier. The parking area is a great location to refuel and buy snacks if needed. Then the last half mile is on a paved path to the top. The observation tower at the top was quite unique and views were amazing as you can see for miles in all directions. You are clearly able to tell you are at the tallest point in Georgia here. The path is very easy follow and relatively straightforward. Took a little less than 7 hours to complete. Definitely recommend, but be aware of a difficult and exhausting hike.

    Darrel Bibicheff reviewed Ebright Azimuth - Delaware Highpoint

    4 months ago

    A very nicely maintained state high point. Nothing too special about the area, but also gives an excuse to visit Wilmington, Delaware. High point is easily accessible and you can literally park right across the street.

    Did this hike 2 days ago in -20 degree weather. If you’d like to attempt this hike in the winter, definitely bundle up with a lot of layers and I’d recommend snow shoes. There really wasn’t any need for crampons on this hike. The hike is well marked and relatively straight forward. The view at the top is amazing and definitely pays off the effort to get up there. Took about 5 hours for the entire round trip. Definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a moderately challenging day hike in the Adirondacks.

    Did the entire loop about a week ago. Most of the trail is well-marked and very easy to follow and an overall a very easy hike with very limited elevation gain. The observation tower on the summit was a great addition and you are able to see panoramic views all around. There is a huge picnic area right next to the parking lot and the trail starts at the opposite end of it. Took around 3 hours to complete. Four stars because it was a bit muddy and trail was very tight or hard to follow at some points. Overall, a great day hike for all skill levels.

    Just conquered this mountain as my 2nd 14er. This climb had amazing views throughout. Trail was relatively safe and straightforward. The trail had mostly dry ground for the first mile and then deep hard snow for the remainder of the climb to the top. I would recommend bringing spikes in dealing with the snow. The view from the summit was breathtaking and you can see for miles in all directions. I would recommend this hike to anyone beginning 14ers.

    Darrel Bibicheff reviewed First and Second Flatiron Hike

    about 1 year ago

    Went on this hike a couple of days ago with a group of friends. Hike was relatively easy and the scenery was beautiful. The trail is straightforward and easy to follow. Would recommend to anyone looking for a hike around Boulder, CO. Only reason for 4 stars was because the trail was relatively crowded, but still and overall amazing experience.
