I hiked up Black Mountain for the first time last week, and had a great time. It was cold and windy, but with proper clothing and gear I was very comfortable. The trail head is located off of Pike Brook Road near South Bay. We got to the trail at about 1:00pm, and it was breezy and about 50F.
Have you ever hiked in the rain? I wouldn't make a point of finding a rainy day to go hiking - but from now on, if I am planning a hike and it starts to rain, I'm going anyway! I hiked up Sleeping Beauty (between Lake George and South Bay) a few days ago in the rain, and I saw things that I have never seen in the woods before. Even if you only do it once, you should definitely take a hike in the rain and experience the things that you won't find on a bright sunny day.
What an awesome Columbus Day weekend I had up in the Adirondacks! I could not have asked for better weather for an overnight trip hiking two mountains, camping out, and exploring a cave.
I am taking a Hiking & Orienteering course at SUNY Adirondack to fill a Physical Education requirement, and we headed north for an overnight trip this past weekend, and had a great time. The weather was beautiful - a little chilly at night, but with proper planning and packing, I was able to stay comfortable.
