Max Patch

max patchMax Patch made a huge impression on me, so much that we were considering it as a place for our wedding ceremony. It’s pretty popular though and we weren’t sure how to get out of town guests up there since it’s about 45 minutes to get there by car from the airport. It’s about 6 miles down an uneven forest road. If you are in a smaller car like we were, be prepared for lots of bumps along the way. Max Patch is a great place to bring kids who like to hike for a picnic and an adventure. In terms of the hike, you can go around the mountain for a 45-50 minute hike or you can hike straight up the mountain about 5 minutes for immediate satisfaction. The views are amazing, especially this time of year. It’s a 360 degree view from the top and depending on the time of year it can be smoky blue with many shades of green or white snow capped mountains in the distance beyond the red and orange foliage in the fall. We hiked the scenic route and stopped for a picnic under a tree  – tree climbing as well. This hike can be done with a child although muddy after the rain. Advise to bring water and boots with tread.
