Cascade Mountain Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"The easiest and most frequently climbed High Peak in the eastern Adirondacks, Cascade rewards hikers with a spectacular 360-degree view of 30 High Peaks."
--Peter W. Kick, Discover the Adirondacks (Appalachian Mountain Club Books).
"It’s the easiest of the 4,000-footers and a great “starter” hike, with
a view of many other Adirondack peaks, plus Lake Champlain
and the Green Mountains of Vermont."
--Lisa Densmore Ballard, Hiking the Adirondacks: A Guide to the Area's Greatest Hiking Adventures (Falcon Guides).
"The easiest of the Adirondack 4,000-footers and a great “starter” hike whether your ultimate goal is to become a “46-er” or just stand atop one of them and look at most of the others. It also has wonderful views of Lake Champlain and the Green Mountains of Vermont.Cascade Mountain is a popular hike, so it’s best to get an early start if you want a parking spot in one of the three turnouts by the trailhead. This is a good one for older kids and for less-experienced hikers looking for a big reward without serious mileage. It’s also the perfect hike for the road-weary looking for some exercise after a long drive into the Adirondack Park but without a big time commitment—plus you get credit for bagging a 4,000-footer."
--Lisa Densmore Ballard, Best Easy Day Hikes: Adirondacks (Falcon Guides).
"Look up . . . and up, and up . . . to catch this gleaming ribbon as it slides down the mountain."
