We loved this hike!! My two daughters (ages 5 and 9) are excellent hikers but I tend to pick hikes that are closer to 4 miles. At 5 miles round trip I was a bit concerned that this could be too much for them, but it was great. The trail is very interesting - lots of wet areas and cross overs and places where you have to be sure to keep an eye out for the blue markers so that you stay on the trail. And the summit - well worth the climb. I highly recommend this hike.

5 miles total round trip. Lots of shade for sunny, hot days. A couple brook crossings; great for your dog to grab a drink or cool off with a swim. Beautiful summit with great views.

Nice trail some scrambling at the top. Still a good bit of ice and snow near the top. As another reviewer wrote, several stream crossings. A good bit of mud too. Views from the peak were stunning. Tongue, Gore and whiteface were visible.

Very easy hike. Crosses several streams so make sure you have waterproof boots. Great view of Lake George, the Tongue Range, and the Highpeaks. Small taste of what the Adirondaks have to offer!
