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.

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.
