Definitely a toddler friendly hike with a stunning 360 degrees view!

Great payoff at the top with a fire tower.

Great views, pretty easy hike

First 2/3 of hike is quite easy going. Last 1/3 was a steep incline to the fire tower. Very manageable for us. We had our 11 year old son and Boston terrier with us. Would definitely do it again! Beautiful view!

Big Bang for your buck! Not a great weather day for this one but the 360 degree views will make this a must do again hike!

Easy, short hike with a great view! Took us just over an hour round trip, including 10 minutes at the top. Lots of dogs and families. If you're looking for a quick hike with a rewarding view, this is the hike for you. Did as part of the Tupper Lake Triad.

This trail is well marked and rather easy.Great views at the summit for such a little effort getting there.This is a good hike for just about anyone as we saw many dogs,younger kids and some older adults on the trail.I would recommend this trail to anyone looking for good views and a nice safe trail.

greatlittle hike not too strenuous it was long but easy

The first 1.5 miles are an easy walk through a nice mixed timber forest. There are a few blow downs to hop over or walk around, but nothing troubling. As the elevation slowly increases the trail enters a seasonal stream bed with loose rocks, small and large, but there is a path on the side of most of this portion that is easier. As the trail levels off it would seem that you have reached the top, but this is what is called the “false summit.” Shortly you will begin to descend, which is a psychological bummer, before you start to gain elevation to the actual summit. Just past the remains of the observers cabin the trail gets steeper. It’s a short steep section up to the summit and tower. The tower views are beautiful. Some of the steps on the tower are a bit sketchy, but intact. Overall a great hike, with a couple of challenging sections. Highly recommend. With a generous time at the summit, which I had to myself, I spent a total of 02:53:00 on this trail.

Enjoyed a beautiful sunset on top of Coney a few days ago. We ran up and down the mountain, very gradual inclines until the last hundred feet where it gets slightly steeper. Great for kids.

Did this with my dog and it was spectacular! We kept a good pace without more than a few minutes to stop for a break and we were up to the fire tower in 1 hour and 20 minutes. Same amount of time to descend. As others have said the first two miles are a mix of level terrain with a few sections of moderate elevation change. The last mile or so, especially after the the site of the old observer's cabin, is VERY steep. In spite of this it's very rewarding as the trail is in great shape and the views at the top are remarkable! If you don't want to ascend the tower there are outstanding views at two points at the summit. This would be a great choice to prepare for hiking in the Adirondack High Peaks due to it's length and elevation gain. Fantastic hike!

Did this and the others from the Tupper Lake Triad all in one day! Such a fun challenge.

Great hike. It is short but the whole trip to the vista is uphill so a good workout for us middle aged folks. The view is absolutely spectacular.

Love this mountain, trail, observer's cabin, and of course the Fire Tower! It is always nice to have a well maintained Fire Tower to climb when you get to the summit. The first two miles of this hike is fairly straight forward...a slow tapering elevation climb that is moderately easy. The last half mile tends to get a little steeper and a little more strenuous. Expect to maybe use your hands a little as to attempt to navigate and scramble the last quarter mile up to the summit. From the summit there are 180 degree views looking East, North, and South of Long Lake.

This is like our 10th time hiking to this mountain. It never gets old. It is so secluded out here. So underused, what a shame. has some of the best views of the McRorie Lake, Mud Pond, Cedarlands, and the Long Lake area.

Always a good short hike. great for novice hikers

The best of the Tupper Triad! Even though it lacks Mount Arab's fire tower, it has views in all directions for miles! Rivers and lakes in distance, along with countless mountains. The summit is also large, so if it's a crowded day there should be plenty of room to take in the views. The trail itself is in great shape and is basically a more gradual version of Mount Arab. DO THIS!

View is great

Moderate to easy, though small pooches and some kids may have some trouble with a little rock scrambling. For the most part, this is a walk in the woods with some climbing at the end, but nothing real serious. Excellent views. Will take at least an hour to summit, though if you're slow probably like 1:45.
Lots and lots of tourist citidiots on this trail. Denim warriors with no trail etiquette abound.

By far my favorite of the Tupper Triad. An easy hike with a beautiful summit.

Our last hike of the day to complete the TL Triad. It was a great hike. There were students out on the trail doing maintenance. Many thanks to them for maintaining the trails!

Previous reviews are spot on. I will only add that this trail could use trail work. There is a lot of “trail spread “ where people have tried to avoid a)mud b) blowdowns c)slab d) stream beds. Fantastic views from on top.

Super easy hike with an outstanding view. Nice and dry right now.

Did this 6-1-18 Saturday. Beautiful blue sky 70 degrees. Not much mud like everyone first 2 miles is easy last mile is tougher. Once you reach the ranger foundation you think your good but nope another short but steep climb. Well worth doing though.

This was our second peak for the Tupper Lake Triad. Amazing summit for a little mountain. True 360 views. You can see the other Triad mountains (Goodman & Arab), Mount Morris, the Sewards, Santanoni's and many other High Peaks.

At the top now over looking amazing views! Hike was fairly easy the first 2 Miles. Started to climb last mile with lots of rocks and mixture of mud/water. 14th fire tower in the books. Definitely one of my favorites! Fire tower is open .

The views at the top were gorgeous ! First two miles are definitely easy but the last mile is challenging for anyone without experience hiking. Rather steep incline especially after the first false peak. Snow shoes highly recommended. Took us about 3 hours round trip with conditions
