Mt. Arab is a short 0.7 mile 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.

Climbed Arab with my daughter’s class on 10/11/19. Other than a few muddy spots, the trail was the perfect challenge for the group with a gorgeous view at the top.

A little foggy, but the views were still amazing. A few different view points to look out on, which made for a few great shots. Fire tower view is a must though

Overall great views from the fire tower and benches along the summit. Trail splits towards the top but either path will get you to the summit and fire tower. Steward at the the summit was informative and a nice little history lesson about the fire towers.

This was my third season hiking this trail and it never gets old. The trail was busy with fellow hikers and the cabin was open for a tour of it. The steward was very friendly towards people and I enjoyed my conversation with him. The trail had a little mud in sections and towards the top it was a little overgrown but otherwise a very enjoyable hike.

Loved the benches n the views from them. Perfect place to relax! Hit this after Cascade n Porter this morning; definitely one that can be done as a second hike of the day.

Great hike for families- some stairs at the harder sections, outstanding views and picnic spots at the top. Today there was a very friendly and helpful volunteer "Friend of Mt Arab" explaining and educating at the top. Very enjoyable!
