    Kenneth Rowe reviewed Giant Mountain via Ridge Trail

    about 1 month ago

    NOTE: This is Hard, NOT moderate, and this route to the peak is more like 8 miles, not 6 miles. Also, don't bring your dog, unless they're very adept at hiking with you. Once you get past mile 2, the rocky bits get increasingly harder to scale and the opportunities for a fall increase dramatically. We saw at least one poor dog too terrified to climb down while the owner yelled at him to jump, and none of the many dogs we saw coming down looked happy at all.

    If you try a day hike like we did, you'll want to be back to within one mile of the trailhead by dark. It was ok with headlamps, but you definitely don't want to be scrounging around near any of the false peaks after dark. Also highly recommend at least one pole for the climb down or you'll have some sore knees pretty quickly.

    Challenging, gorgeous and populated with legit and polite hikers. Don't underestimate this hike, especially in the fall with wet leaves, mud and high winds when you reach the various false peaks.
