    Tom van der Linden reviewed Oertijd Trail

    about 1 month ago

    Nice and easy walk through the forests of Lage Vuursche, passing some 3000-year-old barrows along the way. You hit the little village of Lage Vuursche at the half-way point (good stop for a drink or bite) and end up close to a nice cafe. We combined it with camping closeby at "paalkampeerplaats" Kaapweg, a free little camping site in the woods (no facilities at all, meaning that only nature-enthusiasts use it).

    Super tough. Lost the group during a snow storm. Feared for my life. Hallucinating all the way down. Still worth it.

    Tom van der Linden reviewed Welch and Dickey Loop Trail

    2 months ago

    A very nice loop with great views and two beautiful peaks.

    Completed in early spring (but basically winter) conditions:
    + Very few people on the trail
    + Gorgeous white landscapes
    - Trail can be harder to spot (no path to be seen, fully relying on tree/rock markings and footsteps)
    - Paths can be harder to walk (6 feet of snow, lots of ice)
    +/- More gear necessary. Warm layers, wind-breaking clothing, crampons/microspikes a must. There are several large slabs of rock which were completed covered in ice.

    We completed it, in a safe and steady pace, in 3 hours and 45 minutes.

    Tom van der Linden reviewed Mount Lafayette and Franconia Ridge Trail Loop

    2 months ago

    Amazing hike! We took the route over the Falling Waters trail (to take on the steepest part while ascending, rather than descending), followed by the Franconia Ridge trail, and finally the Old Bridle Path (using part of the Greenleaf trail).

    In early spring (but basically winter) conditions:
    + Very few people on the trail
    + Gorgeous white landscapes
    - Trail can be harder to spot (no path to be seen, fully relying on tree/rock markings and footsteps)
    - Paths can be harder to walk (6 feet of snow, lots of ice)
    +/- More gear necessary. Warm layers, wind-breaking clothing, crampons/microspikes a must, snow-shoes a big bonus (didn't have those, would have been good in certain areas).

    We completed it, in a safe and steady pace, in 7,5 hours.
