Easy hike, good views

Nice short and easy climb that offers some great views. Short trail is definitely steeper and more difficult than the long option, but offers some great views on the way up. Short trail was mildly challenging with snow and ice cover; I would definitely recommend descending on the long trail of snow and ice cover.

Hiked this on 12/13, microspikes a complete necessity. Took the advice and did the blue up, yellow down. Much easier on the knees that way, blue was pretty steep and covered in ice/snow.

If you keep on the snow trampled trails you won’t need your snowshoes. However, if you have the option, I would bring them, there is a consistent 3-4 feet of snow.

Beautiful and quiet at the top.

One of my favorite hikes in the adirondacks. Surrounded by high peaks, this is a beautiful and quick hike. Take the long trail for a more gradual incline, although personally I don’t find it much less steep than the short trail. On 12/10 the trail is completely covered in snow and ice, I wore spikes and had a pretty easy time. I’ve done this trail in all seasons and will always recommend to people who want to see the beauty of the higher peaks without having to climb them.

12/8 : Snow was packed down pretty good. Wore crampons the entire time and had no issues. Awesome views when you summit

Great half day hike. This recorded trip doesn’t completely match the way the trail blazes lead. Lots of snow and ice on the trail. Did this on 12/8

Awesome hike. The snow on the trail was packed which really helped out. I had zero issues following the trail. I was also lucky to have clear skies at the top and 360 views. If you want close parking to the trailhead, it still had spots available at 0800.

Went after the first snowfall in the area. Avid hiker so I figured the easy rating would allow me to do it in the snow without spikes. Do not attempt without micro spikes because the last .5 miles to the top is super slippery. Beautiful views, trail isn’t marked but obvious where the foot traffic is.

Super Trail très belle vue monter abrupte qui offre plusieurs petits défi pour débutants mais se fait bien

A great hike that would’ve been a lot easier had it not been for the frequent mud jumping. The views from the tower were stunning and I even saw a guy hiking in sandals

Snowy, muddy and slippery today but still a great hike. Gradual climb with lots of bridges and stairs.

We did this hike in possibly the worst weather conditions. Pouring rain so bad the trail became a stream. At the top it was mixed rain and sleet. On a nice day I would rate this trail moderately easy, under the conditions I did it in , it was all but easy.
I would do this again when conditions are favorable.

Did goodnow today. Very nice hike. Fire tower was in good shape. Nice view :)

I loved this hike! Did on 10./18, already snow covered. We were the only ones at the summit. Did the shorter way up and longer way down. Absolutely amazing views of the snow capped high peaks.

This was my first ADK hike. We brought our 15 year old dog, who found it pretty fun and easy. It can definitely get a bit steep at parts, but nothing too difficult at all. There are two nice lookouts at the summit. I would recommend this for beginners. We took the left trail up, but had a hard time staying on trail with all the leaves hiding the path. Pretty short hike but definitely rewarding.

Did this Mtn trail a few months ago with my girlfriend. It was a nice relatively easy hike until the last section. Great views from the summit!!! Did this hike also with a friend in the winter and it was okay.

Beautiful hike to the top, light traffic

We took the short hike up which was quite steep and mostly jumping over the big rocks. Don’t recommend if it is icy or snowing, could be dangerous. View at the top was very nice.

Nice short loop with going up is steep sometimes, going down is easy.

Trail marked strangely, parking is limited and trail can be tricky to find. Moderate hike with beautiful views at the top. We love the waterfall! Very dog friendly. Went on a October Saturday and only ran into one group of people.

An easy hike I’ve been doing since I was little with my family. Beautiful views and the tower is pretty cool!

Beautiful hike with great views!! Heavily trafficked, but still worth doing!

Way way too busy. Can’t enjoy the hike or the summit. Another victim of its own success. Parking lots and sides of road over run with cars. Inconsiderate people plying music and partying in summit. Not fun at all.

Seulement à 2h15 de Montréal, la route est facile, le stationnement au bord de la route est gratuit et le hike est parfait! nous y sommes allés avec notre chienne husky et nous avons passé une journée sensationnelle. il y a tellement de hike cool dans les Adirondacks...

I love trails like this. It's a rock scramble almost immediately. The boulders you're stepping on, over, and around act like a natural staircase.

The short trails is short and steep. Before long you're staring at Algonquin, Marcy, and a few other peaks, with Heart Lake shimmering directly below.

We took the short trail back down.

Breathtaking views at the summit and several points on the way up as well. The trail is clearly marked and well traveled. Steady uphill climb with some rocky parts to keep it interesting. I went to see the fall foliage and was not disappointed in the slightest!

Beginner hiker. Was a challenging but doable climb. We walked from Hotel Saranac to the trailhead, ascended the unmarked trail (left) and descended on the marked (right), and back to the hotel topping out around 4 miles. Including about 30 mins at the summit finished the mountain itself it about 2.5 hours. Nice views from the top but a little blocked by trees at summit - still a rewarding view. Encouraged me to try for Saranac 6ers!

I took the blue trail up. Starts off relatively flat and easy. Becomes steep with many scrambles towards the top. The summit has several spots for some great views. This was a nice pleasant walk through the woods with a good moderately challenging climb, depending on your skill level. Some may find the blue trail more difficult. I took the yellow trail down which saved my knees. It adds some distance to the way back but it was nice. There is a small area with a creek closer to the lot. I would do this again.

Great hike, excellent views the whole way
