My husband and I do quite a bit of hiking and in many different places. Some parts of this hike were more strenuous than most we have done. There are some spots that you are basically rock climbing at the end and before that the steep incline on the stone "steps" is quite strenuous. We do move very fast though... More

Even though this mountain is only 3353 ft. tall, it's a moderately strenuous hike with 1700 elevation gain. While it can be tricky in places, if you like to scramble...you'll like this hike. The views at the top were fantastic, especially at foliage peak, which we were very lucky to see.

it is a great hike to start, gets a little tricky in the middle of the climb, you have to deal with some rocks, but others made trails around them if you don't want to climb them, but the hike is worth the while in the end when you see the view.

A good hike - some work to get there, but SOOO worth it. Our group of 8, varying levels of ability, all made it to the top to enjoy the fabulous views. Only spot in the Adirondacks advertised with 360 degree views. Just great. Bring water, use hiking sticks is you have them.
