This is an out and back hike. Follow the yellow blazes.
This was a crowded trail.
There were few brook crossings at the beginning of the trail.
We stopped to take advantage of each one - letting the dogs drink.
At some point you leave the brooks, and then there is no water.
It was a hot day - we carried 8 liters of water (plus a water filter which we didn't need) for 2 people & 2 dogs.
This hike has 2,000 feet elevation gain, but it felt moderate. The difficulty was the heat.
Year to date miles: 266.2
|Not much water...|
|Another water break. Nothing deep enough to submerge the dogs in.|
|There is a nice spot before the summit with a view behind you. It is not the summit yet. |
Continue into the woods.
|Wait....we found a second summit marker! Did someone make a mistake?|
|Feeling good to let my feet breathe. We searched around and found a spot on the summit where we could have |
both a view & sit in the shade. View of Lake George.
|The third summit marker we found!|
