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.

Approx 2 miles in (after 2 bridge), I ran across an area of water I could not cross. Had to turn around because water was too high. Tried to go around without success. Need a bridge here. No bugs, great temp.

Breathtaking views at the summit but only visible from the tower. Last mile or so is challenging .. most rock climbing but SO worth it

Awesome hike , great views and a well kept trails . I decided to go the opposite way on the trail

We did the easy path on the way up and the harder path the way down. Fun, with good views up and down!

Great views & foliage today - fire tower was locked at the top unfortunately but could go to the landing.

Well worth the effort to get here. The top is like something out of Lord of the Rings. Not for beginners or those with weak knees; the descent will be hardest.
