The Adirondack Park is a protected park in the U.S. state of New York. It’s known for its fall foliage–viewing and forested mountains, with hiking trails crossing the Adirondack High Peaks near Lake Placid. Whiteface Mountain’s ski runs are nearby. West, paddling routes weave through St. Regis Canoe Area. Rapids swirl along Ausable Chasm canyon to the east.

Great hike and a little hard but manageable!

Great little trail to start off snowshoeing in the ADK mountains. Had to break the trail today starting halfway up due to the recent snowfall. Pretty good traction though with the fresh snow. Very little ice to deal with. Sunny today so there was a great view at the top!

Strenuous hike, but not too much so. Was my friend's first high peak! Took us about 6 hours round trip.

Totally underrated hike. The views are great, and it was easy enough that we could do it after a strenuous day of activity. We hiked the longer, easier route for both ways.

Took the short trail, make sure you’re warm! -8F at the top. Might need snow shoes if going the long way. Lots of snow on the trail right now.

Today did Ridge trail up Giant Mountain . Needed snowshoes going up and halfway down . The trail is steep at certain heights . Nice trail would do it again.

Awesome short trail. Great view! Done this several times. On to the next. 46ers here I come

View is absolutely amazing! The hike was very very hard! Takes about 2-3 hours to go up and 1to go down! I hiked half the mountain barefoot because my shoes gave me blisters! Definitely recommended hiking shoes! Absolutely worth it! Just hard so be prepared

First hike by myself- screwed up and somehow went to fishbrook Pond- was amazing!!! Will definitely do this again. Hopefully be able to see all the ponds- this area has quite a bit to do as far as trails, hiked views, camping, etc. pretty sweet

I would not call this trail easy if you are a new hiker. It rained earlier that day when we hiked so that added to the difficulty. Starts out right away if you take the right fork, straight climb, all the way up so just be aware.

great for hiking with a dog

Hiked in microspikes. Took ~1.5 hours. Multiple viewpoints at the summit.

Actually did this trail by starting at Owens Pond and coming down Copperas, which totaled about 4 miles. Owens is more scenic. Also, I certainly you wouldn’t want to have started the walk climbing up from the copperas trailhead. Nice little leanto at the pond though.

Did this hike 2 days ago in -20 degree weather. If you’d like to attempt this hike in the winter, definitely bundle up with a lot of layers and I’d recommend snow shoes. There really wasn’t any need for crampons on this hike. The hike is well marked and relatively straight forward. The view at the top is amazing and definitely pays off the effort to get up there. Took about 5 hours for the entire round trip. Definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a moderately challenging day hike in the Adirondacks.

This was a great first snowshoe hike. Took exactly 4 hours. Stunning views.

Great hike hike today. Snow was not an issue as the trail was well broken in. Highly recommend this trail. Made the full loop in less than four hours. Recommend doing the loop clockwise- trail between the two peaks was the most difficult.

I left parking lot and temp was -1... I purposely did not put too many layers on as I knew the type of climb that was coming...I was cold for first 1/2 mile then was plenty warm until I reached the summit. I highly recommend snowshoes. ..especially ones with spikes and/or metal teeth.
Light snow was falling so visibility wasn't great at top...it was -10 so I wasn't wanting to linger very long anyway.
it's a fairly strenuous hike so make sure you bring ample water, even in Winter.

Fun easy hike. Would be great for someone's first hike in the Dacks or looking for a warm up. There was 3 good outlooks near the summit. We hiked with a good base of snow. Used microspikes. Definitely need some kind of traction. Snowshoes would have been fun too. I want my mom to do this one - good mom hike.

Fun easy hike to the pond. Lots of snow down but it was packed well. We got by fine with microspikes. You could probably do it with just boots because there is very little grade. Nice and tranquil ending. Probably took a total of 1.5 hours out and back.

Great hike! It's a bit tough of hike but a good cardio workout. I was hoping to have it done in 4 hours and managed the whole 7.1 mile loop in 3 hours flat! I recommend Cat and then Thomas. Used snowshoes the whole time.
