Rocky Peak Ridge, ADK, NY (10/14/17, 5:07:34AM)
Rocky Peak Ridge #20- 4,420' Most sustained views of any hike thus far. Gorgeous vistas out to Lake Champlain and west towards Giant Mountain. Very diverse group of ecosystems from Hemlock groves and Oak ridges to Spruce and Fir and large pockets of Cedar. Views everywhere! Very little water accept for the stream at the beginning and at Lake Mary Louise. Easy to moderate with steep climb up to Rocky peak but the net elevation gains and losses make for a challenging, tough hike. Muddy after Rocky peak. 4 hr 14 min to summit Weather: 57 F @ 5a.m, starry, some cloud clover, breezy. 47 F on RPR summit @ 9:34 a.m Light wind, summit in and out of clouds. 65 F @ 2:30 p.m, 680' mostly cloudy Saw 2 foxes crossing the north way Woodpecker, chipmunks, deer Red Pine @ 4,000' PITCH PINE TOO? Cedar @ 3,500' Red Maple 3,070'
