The cabin has a delicate water supply, not good for dogs to make a mess of. It is small and in a damp place: bugs are a problem. The weather can come up fast in those parts, especially on the mountain, which juts into the sky. I got rained on a sunny day.
Great Mountain with great snow
Stay at Grunts Lodge for cheap
This portion of the Long Trail was well-maintained and had varied terrain. I took my Samoyed with me and she and I faired well climbing the rocks and maneuvering over the pipes adjacent to one of the ski slopes. It was cloudy when I reached the summit, but still had quite a view in all directions. Signs at the summit pointed to various locations and sites in view, which helped in identifying other peaks.
The trail up Jay peak is a great day hike! Suggestion is to do it in early October;the weather is perfect, the air is crisp, fresh and clean, and upon arriving at the peak you are delighted with an amazing breath taking view. As far as the eye can see, there are rolling hills of orange, red and yellow trees. The view is priceless.
