Owl’s Head Mountain

Saturday I finally got to take my parents on an Adirondack hike! The last time I hiked with them it was 2009 and we hiked to the Hadley Mountain firetower. They loved it, but hadn’t hiked anything since. Saturday was the day. I picked Owls Head in Keene because it is an easy hike with outstanding views.

I was a bit worried about the rain, but it held off, and we could see in all directions! There are many view points all along the .6 mile trail to the summit.

It took us about 45 minutes to get to the top and right as we got there it started to sprinkle. Perfect timing. We saved our lunches to eat when we got back to the car rather than sticking around in the rain.

The rain clouds came rolling in shortly, by the time we got back to the car it started raining heavier. Perfect timing. I was happy to experience a hike with my parents and to show them how awesome the views are around here. Now they get why I’m driving up here every weekend. 😀
