"Sunny November day - great for a hike! A little icy in spots, the trail is still more of a herd path once off the Preserve Lands - just ribbons tied to trees to mark where the trail will be built. Beautiful open ledges just before the summit. Views to Prospect Mountain in Lake George & lots of others. 3 stream crossings - easily rock-hopped, but they would have been dicey if the water was higher or if it was icy." - Potash Mountain, PJSelmer, Nov 12, 2018
"Finally a break in the weather, somewhat clear skies and no rain. The past week has been wet and cold, with snow above 2000 feet. So today we went up Bear Den Mountain over by Whiteface and then after that we hiked up Silver Lake Mountain by Silver Lake. We encountered a little snow on the ground above 2000 feet but outside of that conditions were good sun was out and temps in the upper 30's to low 40's. Great views from both peaks for not too much effort." - Bears Den Mountain, hbotc, Nov 4, 2018

"Took a well earned day off work to go finish the "alternate" 29er Challenge and the LP 9er. Weather wasn't the best, but could've been worse. Forecast was rain all day. We got lucky.............ish." - Flume Knob, UK-Ranger, Oct 31, 2018
