HikingGreat!Scramble

Trail was definitely a challenge, but the rewards are well worth the time and energy! Took us about 8.5-9 hours of active hike time round trip, and we spent about an hour and half at the top (and we didn’t want to leave!). Amazing views of the other high peaks, Vermont, Lake Champlain, and Canada. The scramble to get to the summit was an experience, but no specialized equipment is needed. Would highly recommend!

Hiking

We did the loop starting with the north trail— pretty easy except for one section that was a little steep. We went on a cloudy misty morning and so the visibility from the tower was nil, but it was a nice hike nonetheless. Our soon-to-be six year old love spotting all the newts along the way- we must have seen like 30!

Some great views, would be very slippery when raining, not buggy.

Good exercise, two great views on water front side, would not go if it’s raining or has been raining. Would be very hard with mud on inclines and declines. Overall recommend!

A little muddy and buggy due to morning rain, but really nice moderately challenging short hike with beautiful pond views. Some people were swimming in Copperas Pond.

Nice relaxing paved trail. Excellent option for those of all ages. Several different paths available such that you can choose several different trails depending on your visit.

HikingGreat!

Longer than indicated. We tracked it at 6.4 miles. Nice hike, our group didn’t see another person the whole time. Seemed to be a lot of bugs at the beginning but then we used bug spray and were fine. Great views of Lake George and the pond

First to Review

Very exhausting but satisfying hike! We broke this into 3 days but more ambitious hikers may opt to do it in two, depending on the weather. I would suggest getting to the Loj in the early afternoon and hiking into the Uphill lean to because it is right on the trailhead for Cliff and Redfield. One spot on the way to Uphill was extremely marshy and difficult to go through without getting wet. Cliff has some technical spots and was more challenging than we expected. No view at the top whatsoever but there are two nice small views on the way up. One part of Cliff has a vertical climb, but if you go to the left there's a shortcut. Redfield was a beautiful, scenic hike with lots of woods and the river running by. I imagine the view would have been beautiful if it hadn't been cloudy when we summited. Gray was a quick mountain for us to summit with a nice view at the top, and so was Skylight. We actually added Marcy because it was just another .8 miles up to the top and my hiking partner hadn't done it yet. So if you haven't done Marcy yet, this is another great way to bag it! We skipped Colden due to weather but the walk around Lake Colden and through Avalanche pass instead (so we could still do a loop) was gorgeous.

HikingGreat!Rocky

Awesome views once you get to the top. I was exhausted but that's bc I'm extremely lazy but I can't say it was too difficult for my first hike with a 7 year old. Nice and clear path. Nicely shaded and not buggy.

This is one of the most gorgeous sites NY has to offer. It didn’t even feel like I was in NY. The pictures don’t even do it justice. Make it a priority to see

HikingRockyScramble

Yes, it is only moderate because of the rock scramble which is marked rather poorly but does exist. You just have to pay attention and don't take it for granted that you made it up and you will find going back down easily. The trail is harder to follow down. Views are worth the small effort to scale up the rocks.

HikingRocky

A nice, short hike. The trail is rocky with lots of roots. It is worn down and quite wide in some areas, so it is easy to follow. Great views at the top. It is steep in some areas, but it is short so you can take plenty of breaks and still make it to the top in a short amount of time. Young, adventurous dogs would do just fine.

Hiking

This trail will definitely give you a workout. A lot of hills and steep inclines. Scenery is beautiful but there were a lot of bugs out this time of year. Not very well marked so you need to pay attention. Found the map on the app works pretty well for this trail as the actual trail markers change randomly. Overall though it was a great hike!

HikingBlowdown

I took the blue trail in & out to the Cat Mountain Summit (although there is no place to review that, that I’ve seen). What a wonderful trail to get the most bang for your buck with the hike. First 2 miles are fairly level & easy hiking. Some loose rocks & sand in parts. Follow the signs closely for the trails. Saw several people hiking off trail that clearly didn’t pay attention in some spots where the trail cuts into the woods. Took me about 2 hours and 45 mins to hike in and out, and enjoyed an absolutely stunning view overlooking the lake while at the summit. Well trafficked, but everyone was respectful. Was a little buggy, but nothing bug spray couldn’t fix! Saw several toads, garter snakes, chipmunks, butterflies & dragonflies along my way. Fitbit clocked it just over 6 miles in & out. Would love to do it again in the fall!

Great!

Great trail. We hiked first weekend of August. Local conditions were relatively dry. Trail goes past many ponds swamps and beaver altered waters. Because conditions were drier than normal we had little problems with mud or bugs. Found a great campsite next to a creek before we got to high falls. Beautiful spot! Trail conditions varied which made it interesting. High falls trail we did without packs and was very pretty. We did Cat mountain packless as well which was good because last section is steep. Panorama view at the top was awesome. Little town of Wakenda at trailhead is cool. Cross the bridge to store and public bathroom. Great trail.

Beautiful trails, needs better trail markers. For some reason, this recording wasn't accurate. My watch says 2.4 miles and there were a lot more ups and downs than recorded.

Hiking

Did this Saturday, I think we clocked out at 6.2 miles total. So just a bit longer. The last mile is fairly brutal, especially if you’ve not done mountains or rock scrambles. The fire tower gets you the view at the very top but the observation deck just before it and to the left is a great place to sit and enjoy a great view. I probably won’t do it again, but I’m definitely glad I made it!

Hiking

Our first walk of our annual 2 week vacation to the Adirondacks. My husband's family have been Adirondack visitors forever. (family with roots here on both his sides). We also love history and when we do this walk we talk about the history of the place. In fact, Douglas went lost while my husband's family was camping nearby. It was a good walk to break in our legs for hiking other trails. With the weather looking rainy, it was a perfect day to do this walk as it is basically an access road. The changes over the years from abandoned camp to restoration efforts (mid 90s) to barn fire to now have been interesting to watch. Highly recommend viewing this walk from a history perspective vs a "hike".
