    Janis Dunham Relyea reviewed Pilot Knob Ridge

    28 days ago

    It was a nice hike
    Steep at times but not technical or horribly difficult (unless you swallow a black fly or two as I did)
    We stayed for sunset and walked out in the dark
    I would do it again.
    I think it's a great family friendly hike for all ages and skill levels.

    A very nice spot great views
    Fantastic way to spend a December day
    The only drawback was having to walk thru the campground since it is closed for the season
    Even got to see a deer

    Janis Dunham Relyea reviewed Mount Tremper Trail

    It was a brisk day 11/11/17 first ones on the trail that day
    Pleasant hike still not sure why it's rated hard
    The terrain is easy to navigate made to the tower in 2 hours and 20 min that included a pit stop to the first lean to
    I would DEFINATELY do this hike again

    Much nicer than I expected andas far as hard as a rating I would say moderate it was no more difficult than owls Head or Goodnow fire tower trails
    It was muddy but a beautiful day
    Sadly the tower is in disrepair but you must climb to see the view
    I would do it again

    Janis Dunham Relyea reviewed Vanderwhacker Mountain

    8 months ago

    A pleasant walk thru the forest
    Not terribly technical or hard I would rate this as moderate lots of leaves on the trail
    The most challenging part was driving the road to the trail Head my Jetta made it but it was a rough slow ride

    A nice hike I wouldn't call it hard but on the more difficult side of moderate
    Closer to the top it was a little slippery took us 4.5 hours out and back

    Really nice hike starts with a pleasant walk they the woods

    Janis Dunham Relyea reviewed Gore Mountain via Schaefer Trail

    9 months ago

    Very nice walk thru the woods, along the stream and then steep road/ski trail walk
    Great views while walking the ski trail
    Sadly, no access to the fire tower
    Great views and lunch spot at the warming lodge

    Janis Dunham Relyea reviewed Cascade to Porter Mountain Trail

    10 months ago

    The trail was nice but if you do both Porter and Cascade it's actually 6.3 miles round trip
    Tons of people as we suspected if you can do it during the week while school is in session you will have a more intimate experience
    Enjoyable adventure all the same

    Janis Dunham Relyea reviewed Mount Adams Trail

    10 months ago

    The first mile or so is quite pleasant in fact just before $hi* got real I thought to myself this isn't all that difficult why did it get a rating of hard...it ain't easy
    I recommend trekking poles if you have any sort of knee issues
    Slid down some rocks rather than walk
    But it was worth it
    The views were top notch

    Janis Dunham Relyea reviewed Blue Mountain Trail

    11 months ago

    Beautiful spot I would rate 6.5 on level of difficulty mostly because of the rock maze to climb thru
    Took is 2 hours to get to summit and 1.5 to get down
    Highly recommend

    Janis Dunham Relyea reviewed Goodnow Mountain Trail

    12 months ago

    It's a great hike but it was very muddy when we did it on July 2, 2017
    It was also my 8th fire tower hike
    The views were beyond my expectations and positively beautiful.

    Janis Dunham Relyea reviewed Spruce Mountain Firetower

    about 1 year ago

    It's an ok walk
    Not very scenic
    Views from fire tower are great don't think I'd do it again but it's part of fire tower challenge and if you need to do a quick hike it's a good one

    Janis Dunham Relyea reviewed Black Mountain and Lake George Trail

    about 1 year ago

    Beautiful day for a walk in the Adks
    The trail was nice a little muddy but that's not unusual
    Black flies were very abundant
    View from the top is fantastic
    Sadly the fire tower isn't open to the public
    But a great afternoon trip for sure

    Janis Dunham Relyea reviewed Spruce Mountain Firetower

    about 1 year ago

    It was an easy hike not the prettiest of scenery but the views from fire tower were fabulous
    If you are looking to get a quick hike in it's a great choice easy terrain not terribly steep great
    Fire tower challenge starter hike
