Enjoy spectacular views of Saranac Lake from the bare rock summit.

St Regis is part of the Saranac Lake 6er Hiking Challenge. It is one of six mountains surrounding Saranac Lake.

Starting from the parking area you follow the Topridge Road which crosses the St Regis River. At 0.1 head right into the woods and follow the red-marked trail. The first mile is a gentle walk. It is then a gradual ascent. You will reach some stepping stones and rock cribs, and shortly there after you will see enormous boulders. At 3.3 there is a lookout westward.Continuing on the last 0.1 will bring you to the summit. Though it hosts a fire tower you cannot currently access it. No need to worry, views can still be had!!

To your south is McKenzie Mountain and the Seward Range. Whiteface and Esther can be seen eastward. Look below for countless ponds and lakes making up the St Regis Canoe Area.
