    Eileen G reviewed Ausable Chasm

    2 months ago

    A beautiful easy hike, but waaay too many buses with way too many "visitors". Glad we went, but might not recommend. My husband tried to use the mens room but was shut out as the "bus people" were using the mens room for their women.

    Eileen G reviewed Pharoah Mountain Trail

    2 months ago

    I had hiked Pharaoh as a child so I was a little nostalgic in my idea of what I remembered. It was an overcast, drizzly day and when a black cat crossed our path on Crane Pond Road driving in I should have known something was up. We parked at the end of Crane Pond Road and walked the road in. We got to almost the end when we encountered a very large impassable swampy area. At the time we didn't know there was a way around it via a trail off to the side. Just then a pick up came by, black cat my arse.. We hopped in the back and voila we were on the way up Pharaoh. The trail was very wet and extremely rocky, but we persevered. Then near the top, it got very rocky and we lost the trail. My husband fell on his hip, and then I fell and slid down a large boulder. We decided, ok... I decided ,to go back. We made it down ok but couldn't find that elusive trail around the small pond in the road. My husband decided to try and play Jesus by walking on the side where the reeds and grass are. Nope, too deep. Good thing because no way was I attempting that. We turned around and there was the side trail not 50 feet from where we were. You couldn't see the trail head sign walking out , only walking in.
    Disappointed that we didn't summit, but you can't mess with a black cat crossing your path after all.

    This was a little tougher than I thought it would be. The first overlook, when you turn around was magnificent. The top was cloudy and very windy. When the sun did peek through, the view was a 10 all around. This was my first high peak, I'm 61 and I am so glad I did it. No crowds, great people along the way. This years foliage was outstanding!!!

    We got to the Canyon at 7:30 am only to find it fogged in. We came back at 9:00, all clear. We hiked the Turkey Path Trail to the bottom of the Canyon. It was a very hot day but easily managed. The waterfalls were nice. We have seen the "big" Grand Canyon, so it was a little disappointing. The hype about it is bigger than the actual canyon. I bet it is beautiful though in the fall. I am glad we went, but wouldn't recommend going to any of our friends. The hike was steep but easy with all the built in wooden steps. The waterfalls? Probably better in the spring. The trail is closed in with trees so it kept the sun off of us.

    We were suppose to hike Skyline on the west side of Cape Breton, but fog rolled in. Franey was our next choice and did not disappoint at all. Great hike, great views. Up and back as the loop is not challenging.

    A bit of a rough and rocky access road for a few miles. 4 wheel drive vehicle only. The hike in was easy, the weather nice. Got to first pond, beautiful! Got to second pond also beautiful. All of sudden, a thunderstorm kicked up and it got nasty. Luckily we were prepared with rain gear. We were not prepared for the heavy lightening and thunder. We made a bee line back to car. Sunny when we got there. Another adventure to share with friends and family.
    I loved every minute!

    Went on hike with Glacier Guides. Dre was awesome. She was very knowledgeable about the whole Glacier area. We had heard the icebergs were gone off Iceberg Lake, but to our surprise there were a few floating around. Glacier was one of my favorites places I have visited. We saw Grizzly sow with her 2 cubs and a moose on the Grinnell hike.

    This was a very tough hike for me, but I did it and it was worth the climb. I wouldn't do it again, but glad I did it once!

    My husband I stayed at the Maple Leaf last summer. Severance was our warm up hike. Got to the top early in the am for some great views.
