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.

One of the best hikes in the region. Be sure to check out the old plane crash on Wright peak on your way up.

Great 1/2 day hike. Take the dogs but keep them on a leash. After the hike go across the road and enjoy the lake.

Great hike in the area. Beautiful views from the fire tower.

Not a great view. Keep on hiking through to big moose road. Stay overnight at one of the shelters or ponds.

Quick easy hike. Fun to do with the dogs on skis or during the summer. Easy Mt bike ride. Head down to bub and sis to make the loop a little longer.

Hubby and I are training for a thru-hike definitely a good climb!
Beautiful trail...well marked!
Amazing views from the top and from tower!


Black flies were atrocious, had to wear our head nets to be able to enjoy the top.

Hubby and I are training for a thru-hike and completed this trail with a 30lb pack. Also completed the Tupper Lake Triad!
Definitely a good climb!

Was a great trail, beautiful scenery and loved the waterfall.
Trail was very muddy, a lot of spot we have to balance on logs placed by previous hikers.
At mile 2 trail is diverted with no warning... trudged through the woods, they do have it marked some are very hard to see.

Super steep and pretty challenging for the first 2/3s of the ascend, but evened out a bit towards the top, awesome views, but a lot of flies! Definitely don't forget the bug spray! Quick, nice hike!

Good moderately-difficult trail. Very nice views of Lake George. Definitely hike the Tongue ridge before the shore side. Be wary of sparsely marked trails that are not well worn by foot traffic. I lost the trail a few times.

I enjoyed this trail a lot because it's relatively short and challenging. It's a steep rocky incline from the start right up until you get to the summit a little over a mile in. It's very rocky and there are some ladders to climb up as you follow the red trail markers. It's possible to lose exactly where to go without following these.

The view at the top is very rewarding as you have a nice panoramic view. I would suggest taking the full loop because for the next quarter of a mile or so you have a few more lookouts on the way back down.

Before long you'll follow a yellow trail around a pond which is very serene. Take a minute, or a few, to soak it all in and continue back down the trail. The trail is still very rocky on the way down but not quite as steep.

You'll run back into the red trail markers again and it levels out a bit again before reaching the lot. The road up to the parking lot is very steep and rugged.

Fantastic trail. In great shape. Steep climb for the first bit. Flats out and crosses a beaver pond in well made planks. More climbing with some rocky step ups. Ascending via a saddle and the ridge then the spectacular view from the top. Would do it again today.

I enjoyed this hike. First one I've ever done, besides Bald Mtn. It wasn't hard, except for the last .25 of a mile when it really started inclining. The view was fantastic. Very good hike for a beginner, like me.

Long hike with lots of switchbacks but very enjoyable. Some poor trail markings along the way- so keep your eye out for blue markings! Nice transitions from wide path to forest hiking towards the end. Gets steep in the end but otherwise very easy terrain.
