About

Killarney Provincial Park is a provincial park in central Ontario, Canada.Although not as well known as the world-famous Algonquin Provincial Park, Killarney is one of Ontario’s most popular wilderness destinations. With its sapphire blue lakes and white quartzite ridges it is considered one of the crown jewels of the Ontario Park system.The park contains just one campground at the George Lake entrance as it is primarily a wilderness park. There are few facilities to allow visitors a chance to experience the solitude and beauty of its undisturbed natural setting. It boasts spectacular hiking trails and canoe-in back-country camping. The canoe routes include well maintained portages between lakes. The campground includes six heated yurts which have electric lighting, a power outlet, a propane barbecue and bunk beds.Situated on the north shore of Georgian Bay in the municipality of Killarney, the park straddles the La Cloche range, large rounded white quartzite hills that dominate the landscape. The white peaks and cliffs contrast with the pine and hardwood forests and the boggy lowlands that surround the park’s many lakes.Quartzite is weather-resistant and contains few nutrient-bearing minerals. Soils, where present, tend to be shallow and infertile. Very stony sandy loam is the most common soil texture reported. Podzol profile development is usual in well-drained situations. Mineral-rich rock types such as diabase and limestone occur locally and the soils that have developed over them support some of the park’s more luxuriant vegetation.

Baxter Mountain

About

Baxter Mountain offers outstanding views and great blueberry picking in season, making it an excellent hike for the entire family.

It’s a mostly moderate, 1.2 mile hike to the first summit. The path begins at a moderate grade as it passes under a power line, then there’s a continuous climb over switchbacks for 0.8 mile, where the Beede Farm Trail comes in on the left. Go straight and work your way up a few steep steps to the first open rock. This first lookout is not the summit — that’s a bit farther along the ridge. Past the summit, a lesser-used trail descends to Beede Road in Keene Valley.
Trailhead: Leave Lake Placid on Route 73 and head west, toward Keene. Continue through Keene and turn left on Route 9N toward Elizabethtown. Continue for about 2 miles to the top of the hill and park at the trailhead on the right — look for the DEC sign. If you come to Baxter Mountain Tavern you have gone a bit too far.

Distance: 1.2 miles to the summit
Elevation: 2,440 feet
Ascent: 770 feet

Mount Adams

About Mount Adams

Mount Adams stands 37 miles (60 km) east of Mount St. Helens and about 50 miles (80 km) south of Mount Rainier. It is 30 miles (48 km) north of the Columbia River and 55 miles (89 km) north of Mount Hood in Oregon. The nearest major cities are Yakima, 50 miles (80 km) to the northeast, and the Portland metropolitan area, 60 miles (97 km) to the southwest. Between half and two-thirds of Adams is within the Mount Adams Wilderness of the Gifford Pinchot National Forest. The remaining area is within the Mount Adams Recreation Area of the Yakama Indian Reservation. While many of the volcanic peaks in Oregon are located on the Cascade Crest, Adams is the only active volcano in Washington to do so. It is farther east than all the rest of Washington’s volcanoes except Glacier Peak.

Trip info
Date
: Sunday Feb 16/20
Location
: New Hampshire
Duration
: 3 Days 2 Nights

Trip Description

What: Three-day hike up Mount Adams in New Hampshire.

When: We will leave Cornwall around 5:00 am on Sunday, February 16th, and returning Tuesday, February 18th.

Stay: On day one, we will hike up to Gray Knob Lodge where we will sleep two nights. (For those of you who want/need to leave a day early, you can just hike out on day two.)

Hike: On day two, we will climb up and down Mount Adams via Lowe’s Path Trail.

*Extra notes: We will only need to bring clothes, a sleeping bag, a floor mat, and some food. We will have full access to the lodge’s kitchen. A fire will be going on during the day. However, expect very cold temperatures during the night and at any given time. Feel free to bring whatever gear you might need/want “just in case”.

**The drive there is approximately 4.5hours from Cornwall. You will be required to have a valid passport or advanced driver’s license. The “White Mountains” can be very windy due to exposure and lack of trees.

Please feel free to get more info on the lodge below. This is a first come first serve basis that can sleep up to 15 people. You WILL need cash on hand (25$ per night US currency.) I am not worried about the vacancy. We will be arriving as people are leaving. Plus we always have an equal chance as everyone else to get a “spot on the floor” 😉
