Paths can be narrow and scratchy. (Trails from trailhead to campsites are maintained and blazed.) High Peaks Wilderness Bear Vaults not required, but bring one or bear bag. Fires are allowed. Bring a saw. ----------------- Friday
4.4 miles / 1500'. It's all official maintained trail. The first 1.8 is along a road, and then you will be turning right for a straight shot to leanto. It should all be blazed blue... even the road section. Saturday
A quick 0.2 miles South takes us to the intersection with the HERD PATHS which we will be on all day. (Only the trail between the parking lot and leanto is labeled / blazed.) Hang a right, then Bradley Pond will be on your left, hang a right at the top of the col, and you've got Panther after 1.6 miles and 1500'. Come down the col again, walk past where you came up, and you should come to a rock they call Times Square, hang a right, and go down from there, to go to Couchsachraga; 3.1 miles / 1110' round trip. Once you return to Times Square, take another right for Santanoni. Santanoni is a mile out with 450' of elevation gain, but we aren't coming back, about 0.2 miles before the Santanoni summit there is a path down called the Santanoni Express. The Santanoni Express Path is 1.4 miles long, once you reach the official DEC trail, if you are camping follow the blue blazes 0.8 miles / 200' to the left, if you are headed to the cars, follow the blue blazes 3.4 miles to the right.
