This hike has it all! Hike along the lake, enjoy the peace at the pond and climb to the summit to look back at your entire hike.

Peaked Mountain is located in the Siamese Ponds Wilderness. The parking for this hike is located at the end of Thirteenth Lake Road. The lot holds approximately 15 cars but can be very busy on the weekends.

The hike starts at the north end of Thirteenth Lake and winds along the shore at the beginning. The first mile is mostly flat and there is a lot of beaver activity. You will make your way away from the lake and follow Peaked Mountain Brook. At 1.5 miles you will rock hop across the brook. Shortly after this you will reach one of three beaver damned sections. At the third spot you will get your first glimpse of your destination, Peaked Mountain.

Continuing on you will reach Peaked Mountain Pond, a nice place to stop and relax and fuel up before the real climb begins. In the last 0.4 miles you will gain 670 ft. It will be worth the effort! Make sure to explore the entire summit On a clear day to the north you can see the high peaks. You can also look back at your entire trip.

Besides this beautiful hike the area offers so much more. There are several primitive campsites along Thirteenth Lake as well as a beach and picnic area.
