This short gentle hike gives you an amazing view and perspective of its neighboring high peaks Esther & Whiteface.

As you drive on Whiteface Memorial Highway just before you reach the tolls you will bear right on Gillespie Drive. The trail will be on your right at approximately 0.2 miles. There is a sign that marks the start of the trail. You will be following the blue discs.From the trailhead, an old road leads up gradually to an old quarry. The area is known to climbers. Past the quarry, the trail is flat for a few yards before turning up and left and climbing in stages to a broad shelf at 0.4 miles. from the trailhead. At this point the trail is mostly flat or gently rolling to the ledge at 1.1 mi. from the trailhead.

The lookout is large with 180 degree view. The rubble ledge offers beautiful views of Esther and Whiteface, Jay Range, Hurricane and Giant.

Added by Rebecca Nichols

I hike to push my limits both mentally and physically, take in the beauty of the great outdoors, and just to get away from it all. Every chance I get you will find me in the mountains, on a kayak or ending my day by the campfire!
