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.

Great little trail to start off snowshoeing in the ADK mountains. Had to break the trail today starting halfway up due to the recent snowfall. Pretty good traction though with the fresh snow. Very little ice to deal with. Sunny today so there was a great view at the top!

Great Thanksgiving hike with my daughter and husband. Really lovely views from the fire tower. Wonderful way to spend a morning. ~ 1 hour round trip + 30 enjoying the views. A little ice and some wet spots, but mostly packed snow.

Nice hike, a little snow and pretty icy at some points. Beautiful views at the top, the updated outhouse was definitely a bonus!

This is an excellent trail for beginners or people looking for an easy hike. The trail is short and well maintained, and not particularly steep. The views from the top are great and the observation tower gives a very clear view of the surrounding waters and mountains.

Great climb with the kiddos (3yr-15yr) and my sister. My 2nd of the Adirondack Fire Tower Challenge. The views were breathtaking even in the pouring rain. The gentleman at the top and his two Newfoundlands were great to visit with. He asked my oldest to please bring the flag in from the top of the tower as it was his last day on the mountain for the season.

Great hike for the family. Gentlemen up top with two great dogs, plus the Fire Tower and the views makes this hike worth it.

I love this mountain! My family and I climb it quite frequently. Last year we did all of the Tupper Triad and felt very accomplished. Beautiful hike all the way up!

Fairly easy hike, a little muddy closer to the summit. Has a few outlooks and benches to sit and relax. The 360 views from the tower were very beautiful, it was a little hazy. The was a steward at the top giving information about the tower and the area. While not crowded, it was busy on Sunday.

Nice hike. Fire tower is a must for the fantastic views. We made it up and down in about 90 minutes plus time at the top. Steep in sections but the trail is easy to navigate.
