Cascade is often climbed with
for an even more rewarding experience. Cascade's 360 degree views at the summit bring lots of visitors; this can be a very crowded summit during the summer and holiday weekends. Parking on the highway can be a problem with a walk of several hundred yards along the highway often required on a busy day. Cascade has a tendency to be a windy summit, bring appropriate wind gear.
This Adirondack46 High Peakis number 36 on the list.
Trailhead:Leave Lake Placid on Rte 73, follow Rte 73 toward Keene. The Trailhead for Cascade will be on the right, before you reach Cascade Lakes.
Cascade is a 4.8 mile RT. The trail is fairly moderate, aside from a couple short steeper pitches. At 1.8 miles is a ledge with the first views followed by the trail going right to Porter Mt. at 2.1 miles. The final 0.2 miles or so is open rock scrambling.
