Hike the Adirondacks/Rooster Comb Mountain

Leader: Adrienne Scivolette
October 15, 2020

Women of the Woods enjoyed a 2nd day of Adirondack hiking, to the summit of Rooster Comb Mountain (2,789 ft) in  the lovely Keene Valley. Adrienne and Ginny (Mid-Hudson), Sherry (Algonquin) and Ursula (Ramapo) were joined by Marilyn from the Lake Placid Chapter. It was thrilling to experience the 50+ mph winds at the summit ledge, from the safety of the trees away from the edge! In addition to the unusual 65-70 degree temperature and the awesome views of the high peaks and Ausable Valley, our favorite parts of this hike were the performing hairy woodpecker and some fabulous trees.
It was difficult to say goodbye to this hike as we crossed the wooden boardwalks at the pond near the trail register.
