    Max Fenter reviewed Precipice Trail

    15 days ago

    Precipice made Beehive seem like child's play. The beginning of the trail starts off with some pretty cool boulder hopping. You have nice views within 10 minutes. The rest of the trail is a series of switchbacks, ladders, steps, and bridges. You're on cliff faces the majority of the way up. I felt safe, but wet rocks/rain could make for a pretty dangerous ascent. We hiked up and over, down the Orange/Black trail to the road, and followed the road back to the Precipice lot. We did this after sunrise on Cadillac and saw only 2 couples. Awesome hike during peak foliage!

    Nice and short, not too strenuous. We hit the summit in a half hour. Several of great photo opps with the fall colors

    Max Fenter reviewed Santanoni Range - Panther, Santanoni, Couchsachraga Peaks

    2 months ago

    I'm convinced this range is cursed. Our 2nd attempt. Hit Santa & Panther, not enough sunlight for Couch. Did Santa first, which was nice. Great views towards Panther/Couch. Stayed on Panther peak to watch the beginning of the sunset before hiking the 1.5/2 miles back to the lean-to area. We followed the herd path down from Harold sq and it seemed to come to a dead end. Backtracked to find where we went wrong, but got turned around. Tried to use the Alltrails app, compass, and paper map to get us on trail, but didn't have any luck. We ended up bushwhacking with our headlamps for an hour until we hit Bradley Pond. We finally circumvented from there an found the trail towards our site. It was especially worrisome when we both smelled bear urine, so we were happy to make it back. We promptly packed out the next morning

    The falls and multiple swimming holes (3 ft deep max) were amazing. I took the trail on the left side of the bridge and was atop the falls in 2 min. It took maybe 10 min from the road to get up close with the base of the falls. There were a series of ropes to assist you down the near-sheer muddy descent. After visiting the falls, I actually followed the creek north thru water, roots, rocks, and downed trees to the Attica Reservoir. 3/5 stars because there’s no real trail and no real destination. Be sure to wear sneakers because the rocks are slippery!

    Incredible hike. This was our first loop since my gf broke her back in January 2018. We arrived at the AMR gate at about 7:30AM Saturday morning with full packs. Headed up the Gill Brook trail for our ascent and made a quick stop at Indian Head (@9:45ish). Indian Head has some AMAZING views, so I’d suggest stopping if time permits. Hiked for another few hours and set up camp at the Elk Pass ponds. There was room for maybe 2-3 tent sites. With time to spare, we decided to leave our packs and head towards Colvin. The hike up Colvin wasn’t too intense (arrived at 2:30PM). Colvin has a very small survey marker, getting us our first High Peak of the weekend.

    We were running low on water and stamina, so we decided against attempting Blake. After speaking with some fellow hikers, it seemed like a lot of work that we didn’t want to exert for a wooded summit. We made it back to the tent and made some dinner. We’ll have to come back another time.

    Hit the trail Sunday at 7:30AM up Elk Pass. This was quite difficult, especially after filling up 4 water bottles (Elk Pass is your last chance to fill up!) and having full packs. There are views behind you almost the whole way up to the split. We got to the split at 9:15AM, ditched our packs, and ran 0.2 miles to Nippletop. Awesome views westward towards the Great Range and Marcy in the distance.

    Trail to Dial was 1.9 miles and felt long. There were a few ascents and descents before you reached Dial, which felt kinda cruel. Headed out was pretty gradual and a nice breather from the steepness of Elk Pass. The way down bothered both of our knees and we were happy to get back to the car.

    85 degree weather, sunshine, full packs, and 30-45 min on each of the peaks (plus Indian Head), got back to the car at around 3PM Sunday. Would consider a lighter day pack and faster pace if I were to do it again. Headed in to Keene for a well deserved beer! 38 more to go!
