  • Table and Peekamoose 4/13

    Decided to start from the end of Denning Rd. What a nice drive in from Big Indian, hardly felt like a hour. They did a great job fixing all the washed out sections. Only one spot was down to one lane. Hit the trail at 8:30. I was a little nervous when we got to the two log bridge but my two sons, Greg 12 and Jack 8 made it across. Jack was a little cautious but he did great. We took our time going up. I really enjoyed one spot where there were mountains 360 degrees all around us. Finally passed the spring and then the lean-to. Both peaks had a little ice and snow left so we threw on spikes for the couple sections. Took more time putting them on Jack and myself then we actually wore them. Table had a cairn but didn't see much from what I thought was the summit of Peekamoose since the trail started to dive down after the big rock?.? Stopped by the lean-to on the way back and wished we had planned to stay the night. Made it all the way down and 5 minutes from the trail head we saw our first hikers of the day. Awesome day with my boys. Made it back by 3:00. Sounds like I need to try these two from the other side.

      Superb job, Jack, Greg and Gid. Sorry _ missed you guys, but I was just strolling on the other side of Peek. I prefer your route to ascending Peek, but they are all good. The view on Peek is on the left about 2 steps past that huge boulder - a little side trail takes you to an overlook. Save it for next time, when you hike in from Peekamoose Road.

      Iske, Cinder, and Lily send wags and smooches to the boys.
