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.

Short and sweet! Definitely would recommend going up the short/steep way and down the long way; it's easier on the knees that way.

Easy mountain. Summited with my 7 year old daughter in 45 minutes. Fun trail with nice views!

Great climb!

A lovely hike. Took it today with my 9 year old son. Loved the variety of terrain, spectacular views from summit. Well marked, with beautiful marshes with lots of wildlife and a steep but fun hike. We loved the scrambling and the firetower.

Loved it!! Had everything we were looking for in a hike.

This hike didn't disappoint, even in the rain. Had a great time climbing up the rocks around little waterfalls, and the views were fantastic. Had a quick lunch on a rock face with a great view of the mountains and watched the storm roll in.

Beautiful place, much needed work on trail markers, had seen some elderly people also getting turned around truly a place for the locals. Will go back and figure it out much to be discovered.

Nice trek. Took us about 30 min each way. Great rocks at the summit to chill and enjoy the view of Piseco Lake. Seems to be family friendly because we passed lots of families with young children. Rocks and roots make for natural steps.

Beautiful hike. Starts mild but very slushy. Wet rocks and roots make for a slippery trek - definitely advise wearing hiking boots. A good walking stick or trekking pole is helpful - especially on the descent. We did the extra little bit to see Good Luck Lake. That was nice but you can't really get to the edge of the lake due to the surrounding marsh. We saw a few orange newts and a tiny orange frog. Other than that we didn't come across any critters. The cliff rocks at and near the top are really cool. And the view at the top makes it worth the climb.

Great trail for first-time little girl hikers. 4, 6 and 8. Went up the short route, down the long. Short is some significant crawling up rocks but not bad at all. Beautiful view from the top. Great bang for the buck hike.
