"First of three peaks summited Today. Fire Tower #20 for me. This Mountain had been on the radar for quite some time now. Glad to have finally bagged it. Great short hike, but Today was a wet one. Had the trailhead, trails and summit all to ourselves !!" - Kane Mountain, UK-Ranger, May 19, 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 " - Sleeping Beauty, LGH-Tom, May 12, 2018

"This was a nice day for an after work hike, although it was colder than we realized. It was a fairly easy hike up. There were signs along the trail with facts about the tower's history. The view at the top was good, including the Adirondacks, southern Green Mountains, meowskills, and the Taconic Ridge. Beast of the East wouldn't go all the way up the tower due to the wooden steps being too sketchy for him. We found a geocache as well. We also enjoyed the pond near the end of the trail. We saw large tadpoles, salamanders, backswimmers and turtles. There were also a lot of chipmunks along the wa" - Dickinson Hill, mrs-beast-of-the-east, May 11, 2018
"Sunshine! Mud! Trailrunners! Spiderwebs across the face! Ice! Flying insects! Spring has sprung in the ADK! Started out at the Roaring Brook Trailhead at 0900, solo. Headed in & looked at the Falls, then continued to Giant’s Washbowl. The trail was nice and mostly undulating, there was a lot of debris and blowdown from the recent storm. The washbowl itself wasn’t awe inspiring to me, it’s still mostly brown in the area. I didn’t even take a picture of it. Hit the summit at 1100, hung out and admired the beautiful views for about 30 minutes. No cell service up there, oddly enough. Big blue ski" - Giant Nubble, kellieirene, May 9, 2018
