Getting There

A relatively easy hike that is fairly level for the first 2 miles and then slowly begins to climb. It maintains a moderate grade until the last .3 where some steep sections are encountered but nothing too difficult and no challenging scrambles. Demanding in the springtime from the melting snow, mud and leftover snow - very rocky, lots of mud and washed out areas of the trail. The summit is wide open and the views are great.

On route 30 from south to north, take your first left after Paul Smiths College (Keese Mill Road)... Travel about 2 1/2 miles until you see the gravel parking lot on the left hand side. Park there... Trail head is about 1/4th of a mile on the trail to your right. Starts with a footbridge.

Trail was in great shape today for snowshoeing. Windy up top and not much of a view with snow & clouds but still a great day...

HikingGreat!

Primo - if yo are in the Saranac area - don’t get fooled by the conditions outside. When you get to the mountain trail, it is simply magical - winter weather in its full glory. We broke the trail today so if anyone is interested to do it tomorrow go for it. It is a beautiful trail - gradually going up until probably the last .6 miles when you wished it was over :-) Snowshoeing gets the best out of you. But gosh it was so worth it. There were no views at the top, but the trail itself - especially towards the top delivered impressive pictures, painted by Mother Nature. Happy Trails everyone!

A challenging one, but a nice combination of easy & steep parts.

Nice mellow hike. Halfway up, it was a beautiful winter woods walk. Probably 2-3” of snow but lots of ice. Definitely benefitted from microspikes. Clouds covered any view but the Arctic scene at the summit was beautiful. Took me around 4 hours but I was in no rush. Only one other couple who I passed while heading up. Definitely recommend.

Great day for a hike. Still and quiet. An easy-rolling trail for the first 2.5 miles or so. Starts to get steeper the last half mile. Started to get snowy towards the top and it was pretty muddy. No view due to cloud cover and light misty snow. I would suggest gaiters and definitely bring your microspikes as it made the descent much easier.

The steep part was very muddy, which abruptly switched to icy at 3000ft elevation. That was a little scary. But the views at the top! Oh my gosh! Breathtaking. If you get a late start hiking, and might end up finishing in the dark, this is a good choice; the beginning (and end, of course) is flat, well-worn, and easy to follow.

HikingGreat!MuddyRockyWashed out

Went today (rained in the AM) but we started at noon. Fitbit recorded 8mi roundtrip from the parking lot. The first 2.75-3mi (other reviews will say 2mi but it's more) were mostly flat but quite muddy now. Boots were completely muddy, so wear proper gear. After the bridge, it starts to become steep and till the stone steps it is more muddy but not hard. The hardest is the last 0.3-0.5 mile or so where it also gets much colder. Overall rewarding at the summit (which is the coldest of all spots), don't miss the fire tower which is quite slippery but has handles. A 360 view is worth the hike.

Honestly it was way too wet and muddy to navigate today. Parts of it were very dangerous with the runoff creek running down the middle of the trail. The trip up was difficult but the trip down was harder with the conditions. On a regular day this is likely very very fun and easier than some of the other 6er’s. Wonderful view at the top and the Firetower is awesome. Don’t do it if it down-poured the day prior.
