ADK 46er 2 nights Santanoni Range: Panther, Santanoni, Couchsachraga Peaks
ven. 19 juillet à 22:00
TENTATIVE BASED ON a forecast of 20% or less rain for Fri 20th (afternoon-evening) & Sat (all day) July 20th to make this trip a go. I want to leave NYC no later than late morning to avoid friday traffic out of NYC and avoid night hiking looking for a camp. This is a ADK trip with 2 overnights at (or near) the Santanoni Leant-to basecamp on Friday and Saturday night. On Saturday we will leave backpacking and unneeded supplies in our tents to day hike the Santanoni range's 3 isolated peaks Panther 4,442', Santanoni 4,607', & Couchsachraga Peak 3,820'. All these peaks are required for the ADK 46. Fridays hike will begin at the Bradley Pong Trail TH parking lot located at[masked], [masked] on CR25A near Newcomb NY and hike a gentle 4.3 miles ascending 1,428 feet to the Santanoni lean-to. Here we will find a camp location. Saturday's hike will start no later than 730 am. Ascending Panther Brook Trail to Times Square (the ridge line herd path) then turn right to bag Panther Mtn 4,442 Feet. Proceed back to the intersection then head west via the Couchsachraga Trail to Couchsachraga Mtn 3,820 ft. Backtrack to Times square and turn right to ascend Santanoni Mtn 4,607 ft. We will locate the Santanoni Express trail and head back to camp. Total mileage about 12 and total ascent 3,662ft. Here is the trip route & possible camp site https://caltopo.com/m/81S6 Expectations Mosquitoes & black flies, bears, and other animals along with rocky trail, scrambling, water on trail, slides, cliffs, bogs and possible mud mud mud. People have reported after accidently sinking a foot in mud that their boot came off pulling their foot out of the mud (not sure this will be an issue on our hke). Expect the unexpected have a map know the route in case you are separated. Use All Trails Pro if you like to see the path so you don't get lost. Expect NO water on any ridge trail so bring enough to hydrate. This isnt a fast hike but expect to keep a moderate pace. Sundays hike is back to the cars. We will leave camp about 8am. Noted items Rain jacket. Bladder or bottle 3L min capacity perhaps. Water filter (dont expect others to supply you), ADK or NGS map, cell phone map and extra battery power. Food for 2 breakfasts, 2 dinners. Also snacks and eats for the Saturday hike.
