    matt donoghue reviewed Cascade Mountain and Porter Mountain via Cascade Mountain Trail

    2 months ago

    Get an early start! We started right around 7 on a Thursday and we're lucky enough to have Porter all to ourselves and have only one other group with us on the summit of cascade. By the time we were coming down however the trail was packed! It felt like we had to stop every 30 feet for someone to climb past us. Views from cascade were impressive but I don't feel Porter gets its due credit. Great view of a bunch of other high peaks and a more desolate feel than cascades.

    Hiked to the junction in early July, spectacular views the entire way up. Looking back i wish i continued on to lake solitude, but still one of my all time favorite hikes!

    Did this as a loop starting from woodland valley and camping in between Cornell and Slide. The hike was tough and strenuous, and lets just say that I was not prepared for the amount of snow and ice that I encountered. The climb up Wittenberg became extremely icy towards the summit, and made fairly simple climbing a challenge. Wittenebrg was definitely worth the effort however, with far and away the best views of the trip. Wittenberg to Cornell was simple, as the two mountains are pretty much extensions of each other. Cornell's summit was overgrown and had no views. The hike down Cornell was also fairly easy. The snow between Cornell and Slide was deep in sections, but the area was mainly flat. Made camp at one of the 6 primitive campsites and got ready for the next day. The first half of the approach up slide was steep with deep snow and some ice that took a long time to climb. Saw some people coming down and they told us it got worse towards the top. And it did. The rest of the way up was on thick, solid ice. At one point i found the stairs but they were encased in ice as well. Getting to the top was a relief and the views were OK, but not worth the effort in my opinion. The loop back to woodland valley was long and tedious, with one plain evil ascent right before the end. Overall it was still a fun hike, but if your just looking for the best views you can just climb up Wittenebrg and turn around.

    Did the longest trail (yellow i think?), not a ton to see but it was still fun and interesting. Also did a different trail that was closed halfway through, would've appreciated some kind of notice at the trail head.

    Lightly used trail that meanders through the woods along the tidal sunken meadow creek. Great spot to see deer and an abundance of ducks and herons. Starts in the park opposite the field two parking lot, on the road to the golf course. Ends along 25a.
