Hiking

This hike was challenging, but it was all worth it once at the top. The world became a bit smaller! Winds are cold even in the middle of July. Muddy, so wear comfortable boots. Can’t wait to do it again

Easy hike on mellow terrain and a very well maintained trail. Perfect for kids.

Great trail! We skipped Wright peak and did Algonquin and Iroquois. Absolutely amazing views from the top. From Iroquois, we headed down to Avalanche Lake. That path was gorgeous but be prepared for additional time. It took about two hours to do 2 miles do to the rocks and scrambles. It’s very steep. Avalanche Lake was one of my favorite spots with catwalks and ladders throughout the trail. Remember to bring enough water. We each drank about 5L each and had to get some from the creek (bring purifying tablets!). We did this is one day, took about 12 hours.

Nice little hike with some elevation. Not many vantage points to view lake placid. Well maintained, wooded trail. I’d classify it as easy.

A good little hike with a great view at the end. Going up can be a little steep, but not too bad. Make sure to keep following the trail when you get to the top. It might be a little hard to find, but keep searching and it will finally lead you to a big open view. Make sure to bring bug spray!

We hiked Mt Jo at the end of June. We combined with Rocky Falls and climbed Mt Jo on the way back with our kids ages 7 and 9. We took the long trail up and the short trail back. Beautiful view from the summit, definately worth the hike! (If you plan to do this hike, get to the parking lot early in the morning because the lots fill up)

Had a great experience for first Marcy summit! It was a hot day and wish we had more water, but a jump in the swimming hole helped us finish out the hike. 8h30 includes 30 mins at top and 20 mins swimming and couple stops in between. Got buggier up top but none that were biting (also had bug spray). Love the diverse terrain. Ascent is very manageable overall, but last stretch is definitely tough. Well worth it, would do again.

We did this and a loop of heart lake in the evening. Low effort, high reward, and worth the $7 evening parking fee at the Loj. A very beautiful and family friendly set of trails to spend a couple of hours on near lake placid.

For the effort this trail is great. The views at the top are fantastic and well worth the hike up. It’s more washed out than a major trail in a park should be, but other than that criticism it’s a great way to spend 3-4 hours (or 2 if you’re really going for it). Was a little crowded in the covid times but people were respectful. Get to the trailhead early - even on a weekday in June it was probably full by 9 or 10am, and likely much earlier on weekends.

Great views for the effort! Started hiking around 8AM--still ample parking. Traffic increased and was quite heavy by early afternoon. Bug spray recommended.

10 miles to and fro, but not too much of incline or decline. Boulders towards the very end as you get closer to the lake. Saw some toads and a tiny snake. Parked my motorcycle right by trailhead in the dirt road off of South Meadow and it seemed safe.

This is more of a walk along the lake.

Definitely a challenging hike! Came in at 9.2, so a bit longer than planned. I wanted to do McKenzie first, but missed the turn so hit haystack first instead. Only took one, 15 min break because the bugs were so intense it was nearly impossible to stop for any period of time. Not at all crowded on the trail which was great. Definitely be prepared for some rock scramble/climbing.

AMAZING hike! Took two hours (stopping for breaks and enjoying the summit) with two kids ages 6 & 8. We took short steep way up and longer way down. The view at the summit is incredible! Definitely challenging but doable. Your heart rate goes up for sure during the steep up. But so worth it! Would definitely do this again! Also the food at the cafe is awesome!! Be sure to buy the tri Lakes trifecta scratch off as Mount Jo is one of the Lake Placed 9er hikes!
