Wish I saw Sky's comment before my COUNTER CLOCKWISE hike today! Overall the Red trail was awesome, Yellow was a bit of a bummer. Going back soon!

Until August 20th 2020, the jackrabbit trail is closed for tree clearing. I had to go through the RT 86 trailhead for Haystack and McKenzie

Did not like this hike thought it was hard! I actually thought doing Wright Peak was easier

HikingGreat!

Camped at South Meadow. Started at 7am and got to the summit at noon with 1/2 hour snack/rest at Indian Falls. Typical ADK trail. LOTS of rocks and boulders and slick rock. There are really no views on the way up (other than the spectacular view of Algonquin from Indian Falls) but the reward at the summit is endless mountains and wilderness as far as the eye can see in every direction. Well worth the long haul up and down. If you don’t own trekking poles you should by a pair. I waited 40 years too long!

The only reason this trail gets a 4 is because, well, Marcy. Wife and I did this trail to specs, never seeing a single soul between the Phelps/Hopkins junction and the Van Hoevenberg junction leading to the summit, either on the ascent (Phelps) or the descent (Hopkins). The trails are clearly not maintained, as sections of the Hopkins trail were nearly impassable in sections due to fallen trees and brush. Marcy’s summit was incredible, but Hopkins trail made trip longer than expected. In hindsight, it would’ve been better to just go back down Phelps back to JBL. Trail took us 9 hours excluding 40 minutes at summit and we’re both relatively fit. Leave early and pack extra socks. Great hike, but could be too much to bite off for many in one day. Take care and come prepared.

BackpackingGreat!RockyScramble

Did this hike SOBO from 8/6-8/8. Mileage ended up being closer to 27 with side trails for views etc. Trail is very well marked and maintained. Views were incredible and plentiful. Blackhead mountain was HARD and many other areas involve steep inclines that seem like they go on forever. There are also plenty of areas with enjoyable flat hiking as well. My boyfriend, dog and I had a wonderful time on this hike.

Great hike. There are some steeper scrambles that you’ll have to get on all fours for. Just go slow. It was a little slick when we went. The summit itself is not marked well, there’s a large Boulder with a small rock that marks it. Walk past this about a quarter mile and there’s a nice overlook. Don’t miss the balancing rocks. We did this on the way down as a reward for climbing. Really awesome views. I’d say one of the best views for a non high peak!

Hiked on 8/6. Incredibly challenging hike w. stunning views! Definitely the most difficult we’ve done but well worth it.

HikingGreat!MuddyRockyScramble

Amazing, but long hike! Took my wife and I 15 hours start to finish from the Garden parking lot (not counting the 1.6 miles each way from Rooster parking). Saddleback has ok views. Basin was great, and Haystack provided some of the best views in the 46ers! Basin has challenging scrambles on the Haystack side. The rest of the hike requires endurance, but a good number of miles are dirt which helps your feet recover from the rocky sections. Also, the trail from Garden to Ore Bed Brook and Saddleback is closed due to storm damage and a brook crossing.

Great workout trail starts slightly boring but then it gets steadily steep quickly for a bit then flattens out sunset rock view is nice but Prospect Hill is totally worth it !!

First 2 miles on road are boring. Good to practice running up elevation. Overlook was beautiful. Lake looks like a very serene place to camp. Not one of my favorites but better than a day at home

Great hike - gets steep towards the summit (last 1.2 miles). Nice views. I wouldn’t say this is dog friendly though. I wouldn’t recommend bringing a dog
