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.

Did this as a sunset hike, breathtaking

Canoed the length of Little Tupper Lake. Big lake with no motor boats. Several camping options on small islands in the lake. Traveling up Rock Pond's outflow, had to cross over two beaver dams.

Trail was easy to follow and well marked. Gradual incline to the summit. The views were amazing!

Fun trail with great views. Fun rock scramble but may be moderate instead of easy.

Incredible views, totally worth the climb.

One of my favorite views of the Lake George region on Cat. You can see across the lake to Sleeping Beauty and Buck. The blue trail is easier than the yellow, where the trail is trickier and more difficult between Cat and Thomas. Perfect views in the Fall.

Great trail that gets tougher toward the summit. Awesome views of Lake George. There are a lot of hikers on this trail and we shared the summit views with maybe 20 of them. There is a false summit so keep going!

Nice and easy trail with a great summit! A few steep switchbacks and plenty of wet/muddy spots. Incredible views set back from Lake George.

Loved this hike. A number of ledges with good views on the way up. Pretty easy for the most part. The last leg up requires a lot of use of all four limbs and could be intimidating for some people. We were moments away from the Summit and a massive cloud rolled in. It robbed us of 100% of views on a mountain that is highly touted for it's views. Spent an hour in the cloud and high winds hoping it would clear out. It didn't, so we took the loop trail back down to play it safe. Doing the loop adds 1.5 miles to the trip as compared to an out and back, but it's a quick and easy grade going down. The trail in the col between Noonmark and Round is mostly runoff, so be aware of that.

Beautiful hike and view at the top! The trail starts out pretty easily but drastically inclines as you approach the top. The dogs had a blast with good footing and lots of places to swim.

Incredible 360° at the top! The trip there was challenging and tricky towards the top but doable. The trail gets pretty steep, but still fun for the dogs as well.

Somewhat challenging and felt like it was almost entirely an incline ! But the views made it SO worth it !
