Cascade & Porter Mountains ( #15 & #16)

Date of Hike: 6/5/11

Cascade Trail: 5.9 miles (2,250 elevation gain)

Trip Report:
- After completing a one day Great Range Traverse the day before I made sure to take it very easy and do the easiest of the 46r's up Cascade and Porter mountains:
- The weather called for clouds and there were many but they were up high leaving some good views to be had from the summit of Cascade.
- The hike up the Cascade Trail was easy as there were no steep sections and the footing was by far the best out of my experiences so far in the ADK's.
- I took in the views from Cascade mountain for about ten minutes then headed over to Porter.  The views from Porter were decent but the bugs where flying around and becoming a nuisance so I only stayed a minute or two before heading back to the car.
- On the way out I must have past three dozen people, mostly families hiking up to Cascade enjoying a Sunday out on the trails.
