What a view from Cascade Mountain!

Well, we started out…

After an hour and twenty minute scenic drive through the Adirondack Park, past many lakes, and the adorable town of Keene we arrived at the Trail Head to Cascade Mountain. This is one of the easiset of the 46ers to climb with a payoff view from the top. The distance to the summit is 2.4 miles with an ascent of 1,940 feet. If you are really feeling ambitious, you can also add another peak to your list, Porter Mountain, which you can access from the same trail. Be sure to bring snacks, a camera, hiking boots and to do your ADK happy dance at the peak!
