Yesterday we crossed off one of our goals, completing the Jordan Cliffs Trail and the Precipice Trail to finish up all of the “ladder” trails in the park. While we can’t pick a favorite, we developed some awards to give out:

  • Most Beautiful “Ladder” Trail without an actual ladder – Homans Path (0.3 miles)
  • Most Likely to send you to the ER – Beehive Trail (0.6 miles)
  • Best Use of the Phrase “Don’t Look Down!” – Precipice Trail (0.9 miles)
  • Best Overlook to get your heart racing – Jordan Cliffs Trail (1.2 miles)
  • Most likely trail to be taken gain – Ladder Trail (0.4 miles)
While we were finishing up the ladder trails, we also reached the summit of two more mountains, Champlain, and Penobscot. We also passed by Huguenot Head, but the trail doesn’t extend to the precise summit. That takes our current summit total to 7, so today we have a LOT of work to get done if we want to have a chance at all 24.
