The trail up to Mount Skylight was a rocky trail that was very easy to navigate. Parts of the trail was wet but the views from the summit were very nice. There wasn't that many people up on the summit when we got there. I would do this one again in the winter.

Le mont Skylight est la quatrième plus haute montagne des Adirondacks. Cette montagne est reconnue pour être l'un des endroits qui offre les plus beaux panoramas. En effet, de son sommet arrondi et dénudé, il est possible d'admirer 30 des plus hautes montagnes de la région des High Peaks.
