Whigg Meadow

WhiggMeadow HDR--2

Whigg Meadow is one of the most breathtaking spots on the Benton MacKaye trail. Not that I would know, since I haven’t hiked the whole Benton Mackaye trail but someone said that about it in the New York Times at some point.  It’s a pretty nice spot anyway.

At about mile marker 6 on the Skyway there's a 2 and a half car parking lot and a sign that says “Mud gap trail” a short hike brings you to

this little hill with 360 degree view, from 4,931 ft. at the top.

And to the right of that tree down the hill is

this little pond filled with a bunch of cheerful frogs.

It’s a great place to watch the sun go down.
