I have climbed Mt Jo a hundred times in over 35 years of hiking with groups, family, friends, and even by myself. If I look at my "investment" as time and sweat, and the view as my "ROI", Mt Jo is one of the best in the Adirondacks. The view from the summit, with Heart Lake below, and the MacIntyres and other high peaks in the distance, is iconic. Although it is a 700-foot climb in about a mile, don't let it fool you that it's a cake walk. There are muddy bits, steep rocky parts, and in winter there are places that are impassible without crampons and/or snowshoes. Take water and food, and take the advice of the Loj staff about the trail conditions and how you should be prepared.
