Kane Mountain offers great views and a nice hike by at least two approaches - one is the East trail which is 1.7 miles RT and the other is about 2 miles RT - both are moderate hikes. Dogs are also allowed but must be kept on a leash.

I love this hike. I go once every season and have been going since I was little. The view from the top of the fire tower is breathtaking each and every time.

Beautiful views from the top , shorter trail is a very steep incline , so if you have littles with you I suggest the other trail , well worth the hike and the views from the Fire Tower are amazing

Nice, easy hike. A 300 foot section is pure mud though, enough to go up to you ankles. Fire tower was in good shape and can be climbed.

Loved this hike in early August -3 trails to get up to tower...great views of all the lakes from the top...drove by Vrooman's Restaurant!!! Steep incline duable, short trail better for small children.

Definitely rocky and muddy but clear path and SO worth the time! INCREDIBLE view from the tower.

very slippery on a rainy day. it would be a great hike on a nice day. Couldn't see a thing from top of tower due to clouds, fog and rain. would do it again...but in sunny weather!

Went up the Northern Trail to the fire tower then down the Eastern Trail from the observers' cabin. No view from summit, however, excellent view of Canada and Pine Lake as well as Shaker Mt. Forest from the top of the fire tower. Eastern Trail was poorly marked but easy to follow.
