10/27/09 Challenging Hike

This hike turned out to be a bit of a challenge though we had done parts of it before and knew some of what we were getting into. We started at the Canon Brook trailhead on Route 3. The first part of this trail is easy and pleasant. After it turns toward Cadillac Mtn. it becomes steep with large boulders to get over. Kelley was not able to manage this section so we did a moderate bushwack around them. The trail then turns into sheets of granite with water running down them. A footing challenge for me but easy for Kelley. We met the Cadillac S. Ridge Trail and took that to the summit ( a bit cold and windy but no technical challenges) and down the trail toward Dorr Mtn. This trail is short but steep and also has huge boulders. More Kelley finding ways around or being lifted by me ( she doe not like that). At the bottom we took the A. Murray Young Trail south. This trail has one section of huge boulders but once past those mostly follows the stream and is pleasant-especially for Kelley who likes all the water. Near the intersection of the A. Murray Young and Canon Brook is a nice spot for lunch ( first picture taken from there) and then we took Canon Brook back to the car. A walk in the park. A little over 4 hours
