"Hiked with Tom. We didn't start hiking until almost 11am. The parking lot was filled with cars. We did a loop hike of only Blackhead. We stopped at the viewpoint after the summit before heading down into the col. The weather was nice, but there were some clouds while we were up there. The foliage was nice, but won't be peak for another week probably. Nice easy hike. " - Kim-Stilson, Oct 6, 2018
"Hiked with Kim. We got a late start and the parking lot was packed because it was a holiday weekend. Considering how full the parking lot was I expected to see a lot more people on the trails, but luckily we were able to enjoy the trails and the viewpoint before the descent without too many people. Weather was nice and the foliage is approaching peak. We did a loop up Batavia Kill to the Escarpment trail and down the range trail. " - LGH-Tom, Oct 6, 2018
"Dutcher Notch Trail - Arizona Mtn. - Blackhead Mtn. | and back. The mosquitoes and the loose rocks on Dutcher Notch trail were bad, but the trail beyond that was fantastic. Went up to scope out locations for an upcoming photo assignment [Escarpment Trail Run]." - SR-Shilling, Jul 21, 2018
"We did a horseshoe hike of Windham High Peak and the Blackhead range. Starting at Peck road and finishing at Barnum road. While we took a break at the junction of the Escarpment and Batavia Kill trails a gentleman came up the Batavia Kill and continued on toward Blackhead, he was the only other hiker we would see all day. On our ascent of Blackhead we picked up his printed map in a zip lock and returned it to him just below the rock ledge with a view back towards WHP. He seemed quite relieved to get it back. During our lunch break on the summit of Blackhead he passed us heading on for Black D" - Nimblefoot, Jul 3, 2018
"I was joined by Steve and Ed for a romp on the Blackhead range today. Strapped on the snowshoes right from the get go to hike over to the normal PA and then onto the trail proper. The climb up to Lockwood gap went smoothly on a packed trail then on our climb to the summit we got hit with a strong breeze that stung our faces and drifted any loose snow from recent flurries. On our descent we found our tracks completely filled in in spots. " - Nimblefoot, Apr 6, 2018
