I did today 10-30. Lots of ice at the beginning then snow. It was windy. Very windy. From bottom of notch road by the new Boardwalk on Stowe side I started there so w the up and down and back to my car 4 hours. only one sketchy spot at the very beginning of actual trail. I used poles and my Yaktrax. I always use poles. Some deep snow around the pond area in some spots. Very fun hike today. I saw no one. ONE MAN GATHERS WHAT ANOTHER MAN SPILLS.

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.

Magnifiques vues avec rochers pour pique-nique au sommet. Randonnée courte et facile, avec quelques passages raides cependant. Très bien balisé et entretenu.

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.

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.

Tradition annuelle, le premier de l'année depuis longtemps. La vue est magnifique, les sentiers peuvent être boueux par endroit, mais ça se fait bien malgré l'intensité.

Gorgeous hike but with snow and freezing weather (oct 18) the trail almost entirely iced over and was extremely slippery. Completed in just under an hour and a half. Would have been much quicker in warmer conditions or with crampons.
The lake is gorgeous and sooo serene.

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.

A beautiful easy hike, but waaay too many buses with way too many "visitors". Glad we went, but might not recommend. My husband tried to use the mens room but was shut out as the "bus people" were using the mens room for their women.

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!

belle randonnée
première partie difficile car le sentier est en roche , nous avons pris le chemin court. cela monte à pic.
si mal aux genoux ou autre... passez votre chemin.
peu de monde sur le sentier en septembre.
balisage moyen.

Great little hike, it won't take you all day which gives you time to explore Lake Placid and everything around it.

Nice hike to the top, Did it in about a hour!! Beautiful views love fall!!

Beautiful hike that is a short but decent workout. Took us as about 1 1/2 hours but we stayed at the top and watched the sun set which was incredible and I highly recommend! Of course we needed head lamps by the time we got near the bottom of the trail. Highly recommend in fall!

Easy walk and extremely beautiful, but too commercialized.

Stunning views of the high peaks columbus day weekend, despite the clouds. Short trail is fun, lots of boulders and some scrambling, will get your heart pumping! Long trail is far easier on the ankles and not difficult.. Five or so other groups on the summit, but within 15 m i had it all to myself. Would definitely recommend. Took about 1h up, 35m down.

I agree with earlier assessments of the trail being easy. It definitely is suitable for most everyone. The only exception is a 20-30 yard section of bare rock that I found challenging. Not that it was physically challenging so much as it was emotionally challenging. We hiked Baker this past Saturday and reached that area of rock just as it was beginning to lightly rain. There was some scrambling needed and I will admit I was afraid of sliding from the pine needles and wet dirt clinging to the rocks and slide myself right over the edge lol. There is a modest risk of serious injury if you’re not careful.

If you’re thinking I’m being too generous about the trail being easy, let me also add that we saw at least 100 people on trail. I’m thinking closer to 150. Kids, seniors, dogs. All at varying levels of fitness. We took our time so I could take photos and managed the loop in 1h45m total time.

For those who think the trail isn’t a loop it’s because you didn’t go left soon enough. It’s near the start. We missed the turn too, but it didn’t matter as the trail was very easy. Also, going down the other side of the loop from the summit is not easy to figure out either because it isn’t marked. I think we started off right but turned back because we weren’t sure.

Great hike with great views from many ledges.

Today with the weather; cloudy with mist of rain, felt like walking through a rain forest. Especially with the running down stream of the water. Chilly, but with the trek and hear beating, not bad. At the top, walking"around" the pond was closed. Don't know the season or just today. Still a great trek.

Challenging 1 Mile ascent, but it’s very rewarding. Gorgeous views from up there into the Vermont foliage. Took also the Elephant Trail around the Pond, beautiful!

What a view at the summit of Mount Jo!!! We took the short trail up and the long trail down. Took us about an hour each way. Just an FYII when you are coming down the long trail there is a spot where you will start to go up again it seems like you are on the wrong trail but keep going and it will start to go down again. Lots of rock scrambling and roots to climb over in the short trail.

Can’t wait to see this place in October
