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.

Did the whole trail with crampons. They are neccessary given the amount of ice that there is at the beginning of the trail and on the last mile. It was a lot more steeper than I imagined, but the view on the top was beautiful and totally worth it.

This was a great trail. The first 2.5 miles or so was relatively flat with some ups and downs. It started to have a steady climb with areas a bit muddy. No intense rock climbs. Our GPS clocked it at about 7.2 miles round trip. The views on top were great!!

Great trail!! Started with my 2 pups at about 10:15am on a Sunday. Nice meandering woods trail with little elevation change for the first 2+ miles, then a straight ascent to the summit, with wet rock and roots, but was not a scramble at all. Spent about 20 minutes taking in the wonderful views at the summit then descended, ending at about 1:25pm. When we started, the parking lot had maybe 8 or 9 cars, but there were tons of families coming up when we were descending. By the time we finished, the parking lot was full and cars were parked up the road at least a hundred feet. This is a very dog friendly trail and all the pups were off-leash and good hikers.

Really a beautiful trail, does not seem to be known. I highly recommend. The view is really beautiful at the top. I do not know why this hike is not more popular.

The views were beautiful at the top, but it wasn’t my favorite hike, you’re on flat trail in the woods most of the way, and then it’s straight up. There’s no other views until you get to the top. Good for beginners if you take it slow. It’s still a good hike

We paddled and took the trail from the lake dock. Missed a turn and had to bushwhack a little, but lots of fun!!! Gorgeous day at the top!!!!

This is a great trail because it can be tough, as well as beautiful, with a fantastic view at the top. Go to the top of the fire tower. The additional elevation is pretty impressive, and you absolutely get a 360 degree view. An awesome view. Hiked it with our 12 yr old Vizsla, who had a great workout climbing the rocks. I don’t know why this hike is not more publicized. The view gives a great shot of the middle-upper Adirondacks.

Great morning hike. Starts off pretty tame, a bit of a scramble up the last mile or so - but - Beautiful payoff view with a firetower kicker.

this was a great hike. did it in about 4 hours total. but it is no joke if you are out of shape. there is a section where you are climbing up for an hour straight. but the views are worth the struggle.

Willing to work for it? If you are this trail is for you. It does have its strenuous points, namely towards the end, but the payoff is worth it. Trust me on that. Rocky in some areas. Beautiful scenery to admire during the hike. Flat at the top offering 360 degree views. Way to get my feet wet to become a Saranac 6er, eh?

This trail is relatively tough but not overly strenuous. Moderate if I had to give it a rating. The view at the top is incredible. We did this in early August and the bugs were not bad at all. There is a fire tower at the top that is a little scary to climb up. To be clear, you do not have to climb the fire tower to experience great views. Lots of shade throughout the trail even though it was a hotter day.

Relatively flat for the first two miles, some up and down. Gets very steep and challenging for the final mile. Tons of exposed tree roots from erosion to watch out for.

A nice walk through the woods for most of the trail. Near the end, it gets tough. Not much to see until you get to the top, but once you get there, the views are awesome. Cool firetower up top as well.
