A short, but demanding hike up to one of the better views of the Fulton Chain Lakes. Rocky Mountain may be a short hike, but the view will keep you there for hours! Just minutes from downtown Inlet, NY. The summit of Rocky Mountain overlooks 4th Lake of the Fulton Chain Lakes as well as the hamlet of Eagle Bay. This is one of the best views of the lake, as the summit is on the western side of the lake.

This trail has huge rewards for little work. Short but slightly steep climb through a pretty forest. When you see the cool looking uprooted tree, you're almost there. The view was so amazing, I decided to wait it out until dusk and catch the sunset. Totally worth it. I had two flashlights with me and made it down in the dark, no problem. Quick hike but you'll want to stay at the summit all day.

Done before, but was doing Black Bear, so I did this since they share a trail parking lot. Great views as always, quick but very steep hike. Took me about 20 minutes to get the top. Trail isn't marked the best, I mean, it's pretty straight forward, you go up or you go down, but it would be nice if there were more markers, it seems like the trail was really wide at some places.

A very steep half mile up to an absolutely breathtaking view of Inlet and Fourth Lake. The sunset was gorgeous. Trail is very wide and multiple paths can be taken. Very muddy and sign for trail is missing from the post.
