Beautiful Southern Adirondack trail with natural stone bridge, cliff ladders and a spring fed mountain ridge pond. Loop trail beginning at the trailhead at Ski Hi Road, Johnsburg, NY.

This was our first hike and it definitely was a harder trail for us to choose for our first time. However, it was fun and the experience was amazing! The views are just breath taking. We also took our 3 (will be 4 in 2 weeks!) went with us and hiked the whole thing herself! We took the route to Long Ladder however she was afraid to take the Ladder so we hiked back down and went around Crane Pond and back up! Can't wait to do this one again!

Beautiful hike! Just make sure to stay on the trail as I accidentally got off and ended up having to navigate some crazy rock ledges. Over all, it's a great hike with so much to see and do as you make your way around the loop!

Great trail! Not very busy. If you take the climbers trail marked with orange tape to the immediate right of the start of the Crane Mountain Loop it is a lot more difficult and challenging, rejoining the red route at it goes up to the summit. Some beautiful views from the top.
