A wonderful loop hike up a steep mountain for great views towards the Great Range of the High Peaks. This is a short but steep climb up a smaller peak in the Adirondack High Peaks region that is known for its spectacular views of the Great Range. This is a good hike for family and kids and can be done in any season although in winter crampons may be a good idea for the rocky summit. If it is nice out bring a camera!

This hike is no joke! Not a long hike but it is certainly not easy. It gets steep and lets you know it. A very fun and challenging hike! The views from the top are outstanding! 360 degrees of pure beauty! I spent 30 minutes or more on top all by myself. What a feeling of owning a mountain, or at least for a short time. Nothing like being on top of a mountain all by yourself! What an awesome feeling!

Beautiful climb with few lookout points on a way. Definitely a good workout and bit challenging. Beautiful view of high peaks as it sits in the middle of Giant, Mount Marcy and the Great Range. Highly recommended.

Loved the view, although it was overcast. Constant drizzle made the rocks slick - would have been far easier on a dry, sunny day! Highly recommend this hike!

Awesome climb with a huge variety of terrain, plenty of steep and challenging rock and soil, a little bit of scrambling in a few spots, and even a couple of wooden ladders along the way to get up some of the worst areas.

It starts out pretty mellow, just a mellow climb through the woods. It gets continuously steeper and more difficult as you go, with a lot more exposed rock higher up and some scrambling along the way. This is not a hike you would want to do if it's raining. There's a lot of fairly steep areas and exposed rock which would be a nightmare if it was wet.

The view from the top is astounding. You have a complete 360 view of the High Peaks for miles and miles. Today the wind was blowing so strong is was a bit scary getting near the edge. But the view was breathtaking. There isn't much to see except some nice woods and a stream until you get about 2/3 of the way up. That's when the views begin.

Overall a great hike, really challenging, and really rewarding. One fellow I passed along the way said, "The stats on this one really doesn't do it justice. This is a tougher mountain than most people expect and it's one of my favorite climbs." I would agree with that.

Oh, we hiked the first clear day after 3 days of rain but water really wasn't a problem. You had a little mud in places and some of the rock was wet in spots, but overall the mountain handled the three days of rain just fine.

Hiked this last week, was challenging but definitely worth it. A bit of ice on the way up. had to find different routes to get in certain areas. Overall amazing.

Quick but challenging (and rewarding) hike that was steeper than expected and included incredible views from the top.
