Hiking the Adirondack Great Range

Hiking the Adirondack Great Range

On our Great Range traverse in the fall of 2012, team PureADK hiked Saddleback, followed by Basin, and after a quick stop at Little Haystack, finished with the prominent and remote Haystack. A quick jaunt beyond Basin, we made the trip over to Little Haystack, only to discover that we still had a way to go before reaching Haystack’s broad and open summit.  We could see the steep last stretch of the trail to Haystack’s summit, infamously called the “Devil’s Half Mile” (even though is technically actually three-quarters mile).  After a tiring last ascent, we had made it to the top of our third High Peak of the day – the third highest 46er, at 4,961 ft.  The views from the bare rock summit of Mount Haystack are absolutely incredible.  In addition to being able to see the peaks that you just came from, this mountain offers an amazing view of the backside of Mt. Marcy.

Capturing this photo presented several technical challenges that were exacerbated by the high winds. Upon zooming in at 10x after taking a test shot, my initial settings failed to freeze the motion of the krummholz swaying in the wind and was blurry.

Great Camps Sagamore and Santanoni
Great Camps Sagamore and Santanoni

For a birthday getaway this past year, we decided to take a mini-tour of some of the Adirondack Great Camps. The first stop of the weekend was Camp Sagamore to hike a portion of the Sagamore Lake Loop and the Cascades Trail. The next day, we made our way to Camp Santanoni. Grabbing our mountain bikes and packing some snacks, we set out on the Newcomb Lake Road Trail, a 5-mile former carriage road that extends from the trailhead at the Gate Lodge to Newcomb Lake.
