    Nicole Janine Gatillo reviewed Pharoah Mountain Trail

    5 months ago

    Did it this weekend however, went straight to one of the camp sites beside Pharaoh lake for the night. It was a warm and humid day plus we were carrying 80L packs which added to the struggle. I expected more eroded tree roots with lots of ups and downs but I remember doing at least 3 steady long steep climbs. As you get closer to the summit(s), it gets more rocky and the surfaces tend to get lethally slick and slippery when wet!
    The summit and lake views were AMAZING!!!!
    Drank filtered/boiled water from the streams and the lake, we were all fine afterwards.
    Make sure to bring your bug spray as the insects especially the mosquitos were relentless.
    We saw 2 turtle corpses which was fitting as we were within PHARAOH Wilderness.
    Pharaoh Mtn trail to Pharaoh lake camp- ~10 mi;
    Camp to Crane Pond via Glidden Marsh - ~9 mi.
