Getting There

Mt. Arab is a short scenic hike in the Adirondacks on a nice moderate trail. There is also a fire tower at the top that provides excellent views. Mt Arab has been a very popular and accessible hiking destination for generations because of the spectacular views from the fire tower. You can view Tupper Lake and Mount Morris to the southeast, the Adirondack High Peaks to the east, The Raquette River valley to the north, Horseshoe Lake Wild Forest to the southwest, and Mt Arab Lake and Eagle Crag Lake to the west. Nice easy 2mile RT hike that is great for the kids.

From the Tupper Lake area drive west on Rt 3 for 6 miles until you see the sign for Mt Arab. Turn left at the sign onto Co Rd 62 and go 1.7 miles to Mt Arab Rd on the left. Drive 0.8 miles down Mt Arab Rd where you'll find the parking area, which is just around the corner past the railroad tracks and well marked.

This trail has received a lot of loving maintenance by volunteers. Same with the Fire Tower. One of the nicest mtns & F. Towers. 360 views @ Summit. Our trip Saturday was a mix of precipitation . Trail was muddy but not impassible. Fun hike

Short, pleasant trail with lovely views (especially from the fire tower) at the top. It was sleeting today and looks like it's had some heavy traffic to the trails are currently pretty muddy.

Quick 2m RT. Slightly muddy in few spots from recent warm up. Trail empty in a Saturday in November despite the warmer weather. Views were great!

Very muddy in places. There weren’t a lot of people on the trail. We think the view at the end would have been worthwhile if it wasn’t so foggy. Try to go on a clear day. It’s cool that you can climb the tower.

You can climb up the fire tower so that’s pretty neat and it has insane views

Very very busy. Best to get there early. Trail is marked very well, and is highly traveled so no issues going off track. The view from the top of this mountain is outstanding. One of the best I’ve seen so far. It only took me 30 minutes to ascend but it was a heck of a hike.
