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.

What a great hike! Took the blue trail up to Thomas, then kept on to Cat, yellow trail down. A lot of up and down, some challenges, have to pay attention to markera from Thomas to Cat. Tricky to find that blue trail, would have been on the orange if it werent for some other hikers. about .4 miles into the trail, you will see a good size clearing on your right, go over a corrugated pipe with large rocks on either side, then the trail is to your right immediately following. it follows a stream for a bit. I marked it with a large "Y" shaped tree branch leaned against a tree. great view from Cat, totally worth it!

Fun afternoon hike on July 20th. Still very buggy, and a bit muddy as previous posters have noted. But the breeze at the summit was lovely to cool us off and keep the bugs away! Great views of the surrounding lakes and peaks from the rocky summit and the fire tower.

If you know how to pace yourself you can do it as a beginner. It is uphill the entire time. This trail is not great for senior dogs.

yooo, the best day if u have a chance to enjoy the beauty of life take the hike

Beautiful views of 7th lake and blue Mt

This trail is just about 8 miles long from the trailhead to the summit. The view was nice but the rough terrain, narrow trail (constantly rubbing against brush), and sheer amount of bugs didn't make it worth it for me. Also the last .8 miles was the steepest I've ever done so I can't imagine why this trail is rated as 'easy'.
