The beginning of the hike deceptively easy. Once past the abandoned cabin the trail becomes increasingly overgrown and difficult. Bugs and muddy. Views from the tower amazing!

a little muddy, but nice walk in and out

This was my first hike of the Adirondacks. I went with my family and friends and we are all from very flat Delaware! We did it with people from ages 12-56 and everyone was able to complete it and enjoy it. Great first hike! It was pretty steep at some parts. We went up the short way & down the long.

My son and I did Marshall via the Calamity Brook trail and up Herbert Brook. It is a great day hike. The trail is as it has been described by others; I didn’t find the herd path up to Marshall to be an issue for the summer months, as it is well worn and others have been kind enough to mark it from time to time with cairns. Our total move time was 7.5 hrs, with about 45 minutes of breaks over the day. The hike back to Upper Works is tedious for sure, lots of rocks and mud. Enjoy!

I would recommend this trail. The hike up is not too bad and the view is unreal! Also there are some cool abandoned buildings you can check out. Just make sure you don’t go on a humid day because the bugs are killer!

I hiked this trail on 8/20/19, with blue skies and 72 degrees. This tower was NOT in the first edition of Views From On High, but is in the second edition. The trail is dotted with yellow markers and well traveled. Even though the tower is in severe disrepair, the view is still wonderful and accented with scores of majestic dragon flies. Tower #30 completed!

This was 1/46 and 2/46 in our 46er journey. Great views from Cascade and ok views from Porter. A great first hike!

This was HARD. The first mile was a gradual incline, the second mile was flat, but the last mile was up, up, up. We had to climb up huge rocks and over large trees and so on. It was very steep and in some parts dangerous, especially coming down. Once you get on top of the steep part it’s not over yet. It seems like you’re at the peak but you’re not. You have to climb up a smaller mountain then climb down it a little until you finally climb up to the summit. There’s a few look out spots on the summit and there’s a sign in the woods that marks the summit. As mentioned the climb down was dangerous at times through the steep parts. Overall it took 6 hours to complete

Fabulous trail. Took the carriage one way. Walked back. Great people at the camp. The route has great vegetation with a lot of different ferns. If you love architecture you will get a real kick out of the farm buildings and the great camp. They are clearly doing a wonderful job refurbishing it. A perfect day with really wonderful and friendly guides.

Hiked it Monday with rain in the morning. (Arrived late the night before and stayed Monday night too, taking advantage of free camping before a long drive home to Toronto). Did the loop clockwise. The fog in the wetlands was beautiful. I was soaked the whole day. The mud, especially on the leg out to Panther, was unavoidable. The clouds cleared for my Panther summit and the views were great. Loved the rock scrambles especially on Panther. Great trail! Too bad about the mud. I’m not fast, especially alone in the rain - being extra careful about my footing, so breaking it into multiple days was a smart choice for me.

If you get there early on a weekday, this is a fantastic hike. It starts out with a road, and the last leg of the loop is a road as well. That is why I took off a star. But the sections of trail are really beautiful and fun. The tourists seemed to avoid the section past the falls to High Point (definitely worth your time; the person who said it was boring should be ignored - it is really fun!). Basically, it's a ridge walk and you cut over to the other side of the ridge. The types of plants and trees feel sub-alpine, there isn't a lot of soil once you get above the falls (the visitor center seemed worth visiting if you have the time). The ice caves are cool as well, just don't expect any ice in August. And don't try to climb anything difficult in there. I started to go the wrong way a couple of times. Think like a tourist and you'll make your way safely through. Bring lots of water!

We enjoyed a terrific August hike on Snow Mountain. The lower blue trail could have used a few more blazers and was the trickiest part of the entire hike. Go with the yellow-blazed high water trail if you’re not up to crisscrossing the stream. The hike was really great and lead to beautiful vistas at the top lookout. We thoroughly enjoyed our trek.

This is a beautiful walk through the woods that leads to a nice beach on Indian Lake. Trail is easy to follow; clearly marked the entire way. There is a great view of Snowy Mountain fire tower in the distance. Some steep sections, but in general this is a nice family-friendly trail.

I would recommend this trail to anyone starting out on the adk46 adventure! Slightly challenging when it’s crowded but both peaks offer stunning views!
