Take this amazing loop hike over two smaller peaks with amazing views in the High Peaks of the Adirondacks. This is a wonderful hike that takes you to two smaller peaks that aren't climbed as often as the more popular 46er peaks. Rooster Comb has a false summit on the way up but the views from the top and from a ledge overlooking the valley make it worth it. Snow Mountain has great views of Giant Mountain in the distance. The trails are well marked. Use the track in this guide as a reference.

Just a great relaxed hike. The trail is marked well and the terrain is very manageable. This is ranked moderate. I haven't done any easy hikes but this was much easier than other moderates I have done. Don't get me wrong, I was sweating but it was extremely enjoyable. I think I'll be back to camp along the trail and take it to Lower Wolfjaw.
