Hike Rocky Mountain Summit

New York Rocky Mountain Trailhead

Added by Almedin Andelija

Rocky Mountain is one of the most popular hikes in the Inlet area. With its short trail and fun terrain, it opens up hiking opportunities for the entire family.

This half-mile, steep hike to the 2225 foot summit of Rocky Mountain has some great views of Fourth Lake and the surrounding area from it's open summit. Simply follow the steep, well worn trail (and yellow DEC discs) to the summit. The round trip of this hike is one mile, with an elevation gain of 448 feet. This hike is well worth exploring if you're in the Old Forge area. Dogs are allowed on leash.

This loop is a great option to avoid crowds on the west side of the Washburn trail.  Start at the same trailhead for the Washburn Trail.

Hike the Tongue Mountain Range

New York / Tongue Mountain Range Trailhead

The best way to tackle this hike is to spot cars.  I suggest the starting point for the Deer Leap trail, which is the trailhead location I chose coordinates for.  You will follow this trail for 0.
