Mt. Adams
Anyone concerned with overcrowding on the high peaks trails should head to the south side. I climbed Mt. Adams on the 4th of July. I arrived at 9:40 AM on the 4th of July fearing filled parking lots. Plenty of space at the East River Trailhead. I also observed that the Upper Works lot had space available as well. Everyone else signed in on the East River trail had left earlier for Allen. I had the trail and the summit to myself for the entire trip. Great little hike and spectacular views. OK, it was a little warm. I greatly enjoyed the renovated tower and the hand-drawn peak locator map. Refreshing dip at the Long Lake beach afterwards with the masses to wash off the sweat. #59 AHH.

So true. :clap:The stories of hiking Allen seem to scare everyone off from that area. Mt. Adams is one of the best firetower hikes in the ADK with some of the greatest views of all the non high peaks.

It's definitely one of my favorites

Is there a bridge across the Hudson or no? I read it is there, but also read it washed away? Planning on hiking this next week.

did this hike a few weeks ago, the bridge across the hudson is in great shape, trail was, and probably even more so now, pretty soggy in spots, and slippery where it gets steep. really a great hike for not too much effort...
