Catamount Mt. Trail

"Headed up to Lake Placid with Kim on Friday night and happened to run into some friends at Dancing Bears and had some drinks. The original plan for Saturday morning was to hike Jay Mountain, but the weather was forecasted to be overcast and rainy, so I didn't want to hike the exposed ridge without views and in rain the whole time. I made the decision to hike Catamount and didn't realize that Kim had already hiked it with Kellie. We got to the trailhead around 9:30am and were the first people out on the trail.

Still a nice day to hike and we stopped at Big Slide brewery on the way out of town for some poutine!" - Kim-Stilson, Oct 20, 2018

I think we started on the trail around 10:15 or so. Our snowshoes had a nice ride on our backs the entire hike! It was absolutely gorgeous weather today, with temps in the 50’s and stellar blue skies. The beginning of the trail was wide & snow covered but not deep by any means. We got a little goobered up by some weird trail that continued straight-ish from the main trail, it was very heavily survey taped & spray pai" - kellieirene, Apr 22, 2018
