This trail is a great way to tackle 4 ADK 46ers in one single day hike. This trail takes you to the summits of lower and upper wolf jaw, Armstrong mountain, and Gothics. There are opportunities to camp overnight near Johns Brook Lodge in order to break up this trail in multiple days.

This way is the best route if youre going to do all of these peaks versus going from the other way! So glad we did the loop as wolfjaws first then down the line and even added on saddleback at the end too as just a mile detour!
