Stunning and very easy. There is even one portion of the trail that runs along someone's backyard so they decorated it with flowers which is a very cute touch. Great fall hike.

I'm doing the Saranac 6 Challenge and this is the shortest mountain mileage wise on the list. I did it the same day as Haystack and used it as a warm up. There is not really a view at the top but there is one portion on the way up where you can see Saranac Lake. I will admit that I wandered around the summit for five minutes before I realized I had finished the climb. The whole thing took me less than two hours round trip.

The first portion is very easy with some terrific views. The very last portion before reaching the summit is quite steep but doable. The view at the top is pretty nice but the views on the way up sort or overshadow it. It was a nice, fairly challenging hike and it's part of the Saranac 6 challenge that I'm doing.

Dissapointed that it’s not all accessible, but was awesome for a first trail walk. Went early on a weekday and didn’t walk by a single soul. Very nice trail.

Great diversity. Lots rocks to climb, but nothing too intense. Well marked. Great for a family day hike. We did it with 4 kids under 7 in the rain and it made for an unforgettable hike.

Absolutely loved this trail!!! Can’t wait to go back again

Hiked this trail today with my DH. Have seen beautiful photos of this trail in the Fall and wanted to hike this for a beginning taste of the season. While it was nice, it was not what I thought it would be - though it was a breezy and quiet afternoon on the trail with a great amount of shade. If you want a shorter hike but a good exercise, this is a trail for that! The "false summits" make the hike worth it with the views as they give one a taste for what's to come. Mount Jo is a much better climb and view, IMHO. However, this would be a really nice hike when the leaves peak. :-)

It was an amazing hike beautiful view on top

Excellent hike. The last mile to the top of Algonquin is very difficult. Great waterfalls on the way up. Very hard on the knees coming down.

Great hike to the falls this afternoon with my daughter. The lower (blue) trail was a little muddy in spots, but not a problem.

This trail starts from the back of the DEC parking lot off Platte Clove Rd. The trail is pretty well groomed. A map at the beginning tells you where Huckleberry Point is but signs at junction simply say Trail. Initially follow blue blazes, then follow the yellow blazed. Parts of the trail is muddy, other parts rocky and goes up and down. Saw some neat mushrooms. In the end it paid off with a beautiful panoramic view.

As one of the caretakers for the family that owns the land from county Rt 33 to Chicken farm, they have asked me to post that it is private land and unless you have written permission to please stay off of it. I do not have any info on the land from Chicken Farm on. Thank you
