A gentle walk to a beautiful summit featuring views of the nearby mountains in the Adirondack Park Preserve.

You will see a sign along Route 30 "Horseshoe Lake Wild Forest", this where the parking area is. There is an informational kiosk at the trailhead explaining the re-naming of the mountain.

The first 0.25 mile of the trail is accessible to wheelchairs as the trail follows the old paved road on a slight grade. The paved roads continues at a greater incline until 0.9 miles. Here you will turn left and head into the woods following the red-disc marked trail. The trail ascends gradually.

Though not 360 views there is still beautiful views. Most prominent is Coney Mountain.

This mountain is part of the Tupper Lake Triad. You can climb Goodman as well as Coney Mountain & Mount Arab Fire Tower to earn a patch. This is a great family challenge to involve young children in.
