Mike and Cheryl here. This review is only for the A W Weld Trail. Danger - Warning!!! This trail has some hazardous trail conditions. These hazardous trail conditions exist for .6 miles leading to the ADK Range Trail. Several slick rock areas that are steep have no cable or ladders. Some very large rock boulders that have no ladders. Several parts are so washed out the trail is gone. Trees are being used to pull people up which damages them. Other areas are being stomped because people are trying to make new paths and I do not blame them. This trail should be closed until ladders or cables are added.

Great views, I hiked up Gothics and took the ridge over to Armstrong. You can get sweeping panoramas of many of the western High Peaks and Lake Placid. Pay attention to which way you came to the summit. There are two exits very close to each other that will lead you to different places. We hiked almost an hour out of our way by accident and did not bring enough water for the extra mileage. Overall, a great time.
