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! It didn't take long to get to the top. The whole trail is rock, making it a fun and unique trail. It is marked pretty well so you can't take too many wrong turns. The view from the fire tower was amazing, and there are plenty of great views on your way up the mountain.
Summitted in near perfect early spring weather. Noonmark isnt a high peak but in my opinion the views are in comparison quite impressive. The bald summit affords awesome 360 degree views of the great range, giant/rocky peak ridge, and the dix range. Most of the snow and ice was melted however above 3000ft, i did put on my micro spikes a couple times. Super accessible, relatively gut-wretch free, with a solid reward at summit. Great hike!!
