Points of Interest

1. Parking area

There is a parking area across the road from the trail-head on route 3 between Tupper lake and Saranac Lake

2. Trail begins to get steep

This is where the ascent becomes more challenging and is pretty much boulder climbing but the views are beautiful and the reaching the top is well worth it.

3. Summit of Ampersand

Bald peak with great views of the distant high peaks and surround mountains.
