Stimson Trail is a 5.5 mile moderately trafficked out and back trail located near Keene Valley, New York that features beautiful wild flowers and is rated as difficult. The trail is primarily used for hiking, walking, nature trips, and birding and is accessible from March until October.
We hiked/snowshoed this trail on our way to the summit of Noonmark Mountain. We only hiked this trail to the summit and back out. The trail had fresh snow covering ice, which made the hike intense. Some people had turned around cause they didn't have the proper gear. We started out bare booting to the junction, then we wore snowshoes. Once we got up into elevation, we switched over to crampons and mountaineering axe. I will try this trail again when the weather is warm.
