"Bumps Pond + Erebus Mountain s Sleeping Beauty December 26th, 2018 Bumps Pond 10:31a We started our journey at 9:30 this morning and decided to stop for a rest about half way up Sleeping Beauty going towards Bumps Pond. Looking up you can see the top of Sleeping Beauty and the ice that is forming down the side of it. When we sat down we started talking and all of the sudden a tree that was lying down on a rock above me shifted and fell almost hitting me. Francis said it was because the tree was on ice then he tried to shift it around a little bit but it didn’t move. 10:57a We have " - devenmosher24, Dec 26, 2018
"Needed Sleeping Beauty and Erebus to complete the Lake George 12ster list. Got a little bit of a later start, but drove all the way to Dacy Clearing now that the road is open. There were lots of cars, but I didn't see any people until the end of the day on my way to the parking lot. Trail to Sleeping Beauty is easy to follow and pretty straight forward, bushwhacked off trail to the true summit, only to be disappointed that the summit sign had been stolen (Lame!). Continued on the trail down to Bump's Pond. From there I took Erebus trail towards the north slope before quickly making my way off " - LGH-Tom, May 12, 2018
"Midnights to mountains! Solo. After leaving work at 0700, I drove straight up to the trailhead to start this hike. The gate for Dacy Clearing was open, but with snow falling & my being unsure of how much would actually come, I didn’t chance it. It’s a good thing I’m not a brave driver, as a mile into my road walk there was a large downed tree across the road, and a quarter mile after that, another one. I made quick work of the road walk, and was excited to see that the last visitor had been going to this mountain as well. Less trail breaking! I scooted along the trail on snowshoes, precariousl" - kellieirene, Jan 16, 2018
"Beautiful Spring day, Deb and I figured we would attempt a bush-wack up Erebus from the high point of the trail that is just west of the summit. When we came withing 4 10th's of a mile on the GPS to the summit, we headed east/north east finding a way between/around the cliffs to the shelf about 200' below the summit. Then we worked south to get around the marsh and up to the ridge, working north to the summit. We used ribbons on the trees to mark our return trip. We removed the ribbons as we descended. It took us 1-1/2 hours from the trails high point to the summit. (Actual distance about 1/2 " - hbotc, Apr 23, 2017
"Gate to Dacy Clearing still closed which adds a bit on to this hike, but the road is an early walk in (~1.6 miles). From Dacy Clearing the hike is a set of switchbacks at a steady grade until you reach the Erebus Mtn junction by bumps pond. From here the trail is fairly well marked until a small 0.6 - 0.7 miles stretch where the spring run off and lack of markers made you pay closer attention. The trail is not difficult and is a very enjoyable walk. About half way around the mountain we decided to bushwack up the cliffs for a view and found several points with a nice view of Tongue and the" - deb-and-rob, May 18, 2014
