People On The Trip

Trip Report

     Started at the trailhead as 6:15. Hiked at a moderately quick pace for the approach until the gravel pit. Slowed down significantly at the gravel pit and then took it easy cross country until we got to Skylight Brook. We recognized where we started our hike last time and knew the climb was coming. We took it slow and steady all the way to the top and then had some of the best butt sliding ever back down.


      PinPin passed us on the way up (and on his way down).

The Good and The Bad

The Good:

Great views
Seeing PinPin!
Meeting Glen (mastergrasshopper) and Cory (Cold River Run)
Meeting new people from Syracuse
Seeing some of the crowd from adkhp

The Bad:

The slog out was rough but not terrible
Some of the PUD along the way

The Drive

Nicole drove up on Friday, I drove home on Sunday. Stayed at Aunt Polly's in Newcomb in the 4 br cottage (cottage is an understatement, it was a house close to 1700 sqft)
