What an acomplisment. Long walk in an out but the trail up, while slippery as wet rocks tend to be, was moderate and worth the covered mountains for the peak a boo is breathtaking. However, I will not be doing it again any time soon.

Truthfully, I'd like to begin by saying bush whacking should not be taken lightly. Although it was fun to feel like Lewis and Clarke in the woods with no hopes of finding a foot path, we definitely were not on the Willard Way for about 28% of the time. During the entire trip, we also felt 92% lost, 100% of the time. That 8% really saved us. Once we found the base of Allen, we felt like we conquered the great high peak region in one foul swoop. Allen itself was extremely wet and don't believe those who tell you it won't make your left foot slide back as you step forward with your right as if you were cha cha sliding on a steep mtn. On the way out the next day, finding the trail was creating our own "Way" back to the old road and skipping across each bridge to civilization. ✌️

Willard's Way is the only way to do Allen! Dry feet, a little bushwhacking; what could be better???

Allen is WAY underrated! Particularly when using the old logging roads and the Willard Way bushwhack through MacIntyre East, Allen is an awesome day hike with great and unique views of many of the other Adirondack High Peaks.
