Ascent Trip Report

Hiked loop of Big Crow and Little Crow starting at Crow Clearing with Dan. Nice loop, good views. Hiked Big Crow, Little Crow, then walked back up O'Toole Road to the parking lot at Crow Clearing. At the summit of Little Crow we split up; I followed the blue trail and Dan went back to the main red trail. This side trail wasn't on AllTrails, however, it was on my Adirondack Park hiking map so I was confident it would rejoin the main trail as it showed on the map. Dan said he saw a huge group on Canadians on the main trail whereas I didn't see anyone else on my trail. Just before the summit of Little Crow, we met a gentleman and two dogs. He had a dog that looked like Sammy, but it turned out to be a Boykin Spaniel; neither of us had ever met one, I'd only seen them on television in the past. It was a 5 year old little girl named Boo and she was like a tall, muscular cocker spaniel. Dan fell in love and said he'd like one of those someday!
