Great little hike! Took us about 15 minutes up it and then 10 down. The top has a beautiful view with a rocky lookout.

Works Microspikes for last .8 up summit. Snow pack is still deep and soft.

Great hike and view. Loved it
Was very wet and lots of snow but well worth it.
Trail needs to be cleaned up - lots of branches and fallen down trees but that’s hiking for you!

lI am not an experienced hiker but I think this one needs some trail maintenance. lost the trail after the second marker and went up completely off trail. It was a quick trip but good exercise. Any view of the Adirondacks is beautiful. Peaceful and quiet at the top.

Heavy incline but at a slow and steady pace it was amazing.... definitely needed trekking chain links for my boots. With out them it would have been horrible.
Loved this hike, it’s on my list favorite! Great view

Its a nice walk. I did this in October and there were very limited views. This may be better as a winter hike

Completed this hike in January. The trail was packed down well enough so I only needed my microspikes. This is a beautiful winter hike

great place to take your dogs.

Went of a two day trip starting from the north and working my way south. There was still knee deep snow in the saddles between brown and five mile mountain. Spikes were still needed on the majority of the south north facing trails as the snow spines were still not melted off the path. Bushwhacked back to the lake following the easier grade to the third draw from the south and then followed the creek back down to the trail. This easily cuts out 3 miles off the loop. Watch out for the bend in the tail about 2 miles before the clay meadows trail head. The trail will keep going until you realize you hit a dead end and have to bushwhacked a lot of elevation back to the trail.

This climb can be a challenge for inexperienced hikers but the views are incredible, with several lookout points to explore at the top! I did this hike through Crane Pond. If you wish to drive in, a high clearance vehicle is a must. Otherwise, you can park and walk to Crane Pond then take the Pharaoh Mtn trail.

We did this trail yesterday. The first part was very wet and muddy. The second part still had a lot of snow. When we reached the top it was snowing, so unfortunately we could not enjoy the view. The hike was a nice workout.

great trail finished last week wasn't too terrible the climb up took us a while due to being our first hike this year but the view is worth it you can go in the tower and I don't have words for the beauty. was very windy in tower but not so much on the ground lol was really cool actually

I love the view from the top, I've seen it in the early summer and in the mid fall. it is a steep climb, I suggest caution if you have problems with knees, back, or ankles, but worth it just take your time. to me its kid friendly if they are old enough and not clumsy lol. it's a must do if you can

Walked this trail on 4/13, conditions slippery & wet due to melting snow. Trail markers at beginning petered out between trailhead and summit but easy to figure out which way to go based on signs of travel. Great views.

Long hike specially at night worth it though

Quick hike. Wasn’t too muddy. Nice views. Fire tower was closed off. Still a nice hike in.

quite the incline! it's a haul uphill, and the trail is mostly rock and stream, super muddy and some pretty treacherous spots that are snow and icy, making conditions super slick. but wow it's worth it!! our round trip was about 2.5 hrs we moved at a steady brisk pace. passed at least 10 parties coming back down on our way up, and I think probably 5 going up on our way down. surprised folks were still heading up on our descend at 6:30. great invigorating hike, and such a rewarding finish with the views at the top! we climbed the tower, incredible views, SO high up!!

what they don't tell you is the roads closed that you need to take to get to the trail head until April 31 so I drove from over an HR away and said screw it I'm trying it anyways..... 8 miles just to get to the trail head...... could see the tower but was getting late and wasn't prepared to stay overnight so I had to go back....... wish someone would have told me about the seasonal road being completely closed until April 31 a bit fustrating. the gate to the road is fenced off chained and paddlocked there's no way in with a vehicle but there's a gap so you can walk through.... on the 8 Mile hike I wasn't expecting to do started on gravel then went to snow and ice then to mud and clay back to snow.... by the time we reached the marker wich read 2.9 miles this way to the trail head I was cranky and tired but was able to see the tower from the distance I will be back after April 31

The trail to Cat is very easy, however in between Cat and Tom is very hard to follow due to the leaves on the ground and lack of markers. That section of the trail is also a bit difficult with some scrambling. Spikes are still useful in some areas, especially going up/down Tom. Incredible views!!!

Super nice trail! A wonderful day to hike! Everything is thawing up so be ready for mud and water.

From April 6 - Great hike into Pharoah Lake. Some wet spots, ice and snow - microspikes recommended! The boardwalk and bridge crosses are nice - water is high in the creek. Lake is still mostly frozen. Quiet and peaceful day in the woods!

Not a whole lot to see until you get to the lake (which is beautiful).

We did this as a winter hike. It’s a nice winding trail around the mountain. Nothing difficult. The views are incredible. Great views of the high peaks. You can see the entire Macintyre Range, Mt. Colden, and Marcy.

Nice hike near Saratoga. We didn't experience too much mud, both were wearing sneakers and were fine. Views only from the fire tower. Saw lots of kids and dogs on the hike.

Looking forward to a nice spring climb, drove almost 2 hrs. to find both accesses to Jessup River Rd. from Rte. 30 closed and locked. Signs said closed from Dec. 1 to May 31st! This should be noted somewhere on this site, not "best used from April until November". Nice ride up Rte 30 next to Sacandaga River though.

tried this trail this weekend was unable to make it do to overflowing fast moving stream or creek, maybe just swollen from snow melt? it looked like when the water was lower you could cross on large stones, however these were under fast moving water, we had our dog with us and the only way to cross was to go across on a fallen tree which I was able to do but we were not sure if the dog could without falling in. we spent an hour looking for somewhere to get the dog across without getting him soaked (didn't want him to have to hike the next 6 miles wet and walking on ice and snow) or being washed downstream but where unable to find anything. will return without the dog
