I loved this hike, first time doing it! Due to weather conditions were windy and snowy at the top, overall great trail that was kept up on.

For the winter triad on snowshoes, Goodman is definitely the jewel. Jetta Bear and I saved this one for last on a beautiful sunny 38 degree day with perfect trail conditions. The first .8 mile is a gradual uphill climb, before veering off to the left for the remaining half of the distance. The 180 degree view at the top is spectacular. The other side of the mountain can be seen best while descending. Will be back in summer to do all 3 in one day.

really quick hike for the Tupper Lake Triad in winter . I like that the first part is paved and handicapped accessible. Pretty views of Tupper Lake.

Super easy hike, with rewarding views at the summit. There was some overcast today, with some rolling fog. A lot of mud in areas, so if you plan to go in the next couple days, dress accordingly!

Really enjoyed Goodman trail! Beautiful trail and views at the top. FYI.... the first .7 miles of the trail is an old paved road, straight, with a slight incline. then a hard right turn to the summit!

Very good trail....mucky in spots but a good hike. A couple spots where spacial issues came to the forefront but worked through them....made the views from the summit totally worth it

This was our last home for the TL Triad. Glad we did this one last. Good hike, some bugs and few muddy patches. The view at the top was great and not 360 degrees. Easiest out of the three mountains in the triad.

Did this trail early in the morning (6:30) and it was a fairly easy out and back. At that time of day there was only one other hiker on the trail. The first .7(ish) is on a paved trail before turning towards the summit. Even then only the last .4 is truly uphill. Views were great from the top. I’m hoping to get out even earlier soon to try and catch the sunrise.

Nice easy pavement walk for the first half of the trial. The second half was a little steep in sections but overall very easy. The trail was a little muddy today due to the rain the night before. Great views from the summit even on an overcast day.

The road walk in had a tree that had fell down over the trail but very easy to step over. The trail was busy with hikers and dogs today. When we hit the summit we had the summit to ourselves for a few before we started back down. The views from the summit was nice and you can look over to Coney which was our third and final hike of the day.

Great, quick hike, but because of the roots and rocks, it took us the same amount of time to ascend and descend. The bugs are awful on the initial/lower 1/3 of the trail - keep moving, or they will swarm! Our poky 6 year old did it in 45 minutes, coming directly from hiking Mt. Arab earlier, as part of the Tupper Lake Triad. Really lovely view from the summit (if you don’t want to do the rock scramble to the top, there’s a small path that goes behind the rocks and brings you to/from the summit a little more easily).

Great trail for a family hike but wicked buggy!! Bring extra bug spray! Seriously, you cannot have too much. The paved beginning is relatively boring but the summit has a nice view. My kids (8,6,5) and I do this hike often and it usually takes us about an hour plus a 10 minutes break at the top.

a bit boring until the paved road ends but decent views and pretty easy. accessible for a little while but the pavement gets a little rough the further in you go.
