Comments: We were really headed to The Perch and wanted to try complete Israel Ridge Path. As the AMC book says it is one of the nicest in the Whites and we heartily concurred. Just a steady uphill, steeper nearing the Perch. We didn't see another person both days. On Sat we moseyed up the Israel Ridge Path to Adams. It was cloudy and at 5,000 ft. the clouds just sat there. We knew we wouldn't see a thing if we attempted summit so we called it a day and headed down. It is such a mellow trail, it's a shame it is little used.
