We were only able to hike one trail in the Adirondacks and were glad we chose this one. This is a fun and rocky trail with a 1811 ft elevation gain over 2.5 miles one way, and quite a bit of rock scramble in the...More

It was a incline for a while. If you are in shape and good breathing techniques you can get up it easier. Slow and steady will get you up. Bring lots of water. Rocks leading you all the way up. Great for leg day. Beautiful...More

Even though this mountain is only 3353 ft. tall, it's a moderately strenuous hike with 1700 elevation gain. While it can be tricky in places, if you like to scramble...you'll like this hike. The views at the top were fantastic, especially at foliage peak, which...More

it is a great hike to start, gets a little tricky in the middle of the climb, you have to deal with some rocks, but others made trails around them if you don't want to climb them, but the hike is worth the while in...More
