"Gnarly day gettin pitted with the bros given her a full send on lower and upper wolfjaw, armstrong, pyramid, gothics, and sawteeth. Not many views due to the clouds but all in all a righteous day. " - LGH-Topple, Oct 14, 2017
"Successful Lower Great Range loop, with a couple wild and crazy guys! Rocks were a little wet from rain the night before, and the cloud cover stole some summit views, but when we could see the foliage was on point! Being an aspiring 46er is hard when I live in CO, but I’m hoping to knock a few off a year until I get it done!" - LGH-Dan, Oct 14, 2017
"46er #8 for us, and what a tough one this proved to be. Glad we've done it. Some tricky sections going up the trail from Hedgehog, especially the top section about 300m from the summit. Not bad views for a wooded peak, a tough challenging day, but well worth the effort." - UK-Ranger, Aug 7, 2017
"Beautiful day hiking Bennies Brook Slide with my mom. We saw no one until we met up with the ridge trail. Highly recommended hiking the slide on dry days only due to the nature of the slippery slabs of rock. Great views of big slide from behind. 8 hour hike." - heyjudeee, Jul 29, 2017
"Another great hike, got the wife back with me, great to have my partner! Great weather, a little cold in the morning but it turned out to be a nice fall day. Colors from the fall foliage were beautiful, the hike up Hedgehog and Wolfjaw from the Rooster Comb parking lot was moderate with some steep pitches but all and all very enjoyable." - hbotc, Oct 15, 2016
