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.

Easier every time.

Amazing views!

Loved this trail!

This trail definitely needs some TLC towards the end. We got lost because the trail markers change colors. Make sure that if you hike this you know that the yellow markers switch to blue markers and that at the T in the path about 3 miles in, you turn right to get to the pond. We passed some other hikers who said they couldn't find the pond. We were pretty insistent on finding it and did so after backtracking and using my phone's map--but it definitely wasn't that easy. All in all, though, this was a nice day hike! The pond is really pretty and nice to wade in. Super gentle incline and pretty hike!

tough but beautiful.

my absolute favorite summit of all we've done so far. easy enough for a family hike. gorgeous!

We took the blue trail, which definitely got a little steep, but it was still easy enough. A great short hike with rewarding views.

Great hike! Did this yesterday with the lady and dog. It was muddy at times, but well worth it once we got to the top. Took 6.5 hrs round-trip from the reservoir.

Very easy hike great for family hiking. Trail was well
Marked and once you reach the summit if you go to the right there is a narrow trail that goes down to the lake.Great views with no trees much better view of the lake.

Good hike. Very wet but not too slippery. Scaled in 1.5 hours with two kids. Cabin on tower IS open.

I hiked this in May 2015, along the lake first then up the mountains. Phenomenal views of Lake George. I remember the trail markers were hard to follow on the way up; lots of blow-down between peaks. I made a weekend of it; camping by the 5th Peak Lean-to. Great perch. Like another comment, this is definitely around 15 miles.
