This is a nice quick hike that gives you views of The Seward Range. Not difficult at all to do

We tacked this on as our fourth mountain of the day after completing the Tupper Lake Triad. The posts below mine are accurate. It is steep but really nice views of Ampersand & Seward. Took about 20 minutes up. Fun Fact: Panther is used as a substitute for Ampersand in the Saranac Lake 6er Relay race because the latter is in the High Peaks Wilderness and races are not allowed there.

A very short but steep hike. I did this hike shortly after Mt. Arab and I was wiped afterwards. Great views from the summit, but the trail head can be kind of hard to see while driving. If you're driving FROM Tupper Lake it will be on the left hand side, TO Tupper Lake it will be on the right. There is a small parking area across the street from the trailhead.

Great hike with exceptional views. Only 1/2 mile from road to summit which makes it a great stop if your traveling through the Adk's. The terrain is relatively steep but the trail is well beaten and there are several switchbacks to help alleviate the incline. I made the top in about 25 mins. The summit is bald on the south/south/east side which gives you great views of Seward and Ampersand Mts. You can also see Tupper Lake looking west.
