great climb along the brook with many cascades. BUT the trail from the pond to the summit is not "easy" moderate at best. certainly worth the effort.

Nice hike. Steep only for the last 1/4 mile or so which does require a little scrambling. Multiple stream crossings, ponds and a great view at the open rock summit.

love the 13th lake area, brought our Akita with us and he loves being able to get a fresh drink the majority of the hike, you can get a great view of the high peaks from a distance but, it needs to be a clear day, was a little windy on top but, that's to be expected would highly recommend this hike, good little burn, and great payoff, recommend basil and wicks great burgers and the beer isn't bad either

This hike is beautiful; peeks of river, winding paths, but due to the steep/scrambling end; I would not call this an easy hike. Views at the top are incredible and worth it.

We did this trip several years ago. The last bit is difficult, but the top views are spectacular and well worth the effort.

The trail is well marked. The trail could use a little brushing back in spots, but it's not that tight. The segment to the summit is quite steep, but there are plenty of handholds and compared to other trails in the ADKs is not extreme. There is significant erosion so I would not attempt in rain--as of yesterday the muddy areas and stream crossings were fine. Bottom line--views were completely worth it as was cooling off in 13th lake at the conclusion.

The view from the summit was great. VERY steep at the end! The trail was overgrown in some spots.

It's a very long but easy nature walk at first. My group was unsure where the mountain we were climbing even was at first since the walk from the parking lot was so long. Get ready to cross a lot of streams and waterfalls on the way! The last three quarters of a mile were a challenge once we finally reached the mountain but the views were SUPER worth it at the peak. Beautiful Adirondack wilderness for miles.

This trail is just about 8 miles long from the trailhead to the summit. The view was nice but the rough terrain, narrow trail (constantly rubbing against brush), and sheer amount of bugs didn't make it worth it for me. Also the last .8 miles was the steepest I've ever done so I can't imagine why this trail is rated as 'easy'.

This is not an easy trail, unless you are just planning to go to the pond. The approach to the mountain is steep and rocky. My gps tracked the out and back to the mountaintop at 7.8 miles, not the 6.2 miles listed on this app. Nice views from the top, but there are numerous stream crossings so it can be more challenging after heavy rains.

An absolutely gorgeous hike with a little bit of everything. The hike from Siamese ponds to the summit is certainly more difficult than "easy" but SO worth it. It also seemed like it was more than 6.2 miles. I would recommend this hike to anyone. it was a great day!
