With views of many high peaks, and the solitude this hike offers it is a must do for any explorer!
This fun and scenic hike is located in Keene, NY. The trailhead is located at Crows Clearing at the end of Otoole Rd.
There are two trailheads. You will start at the one directing you to Big Crow. Once you register you climb 0.5 miles until you reach the junction for the Soda Range (also called the Nun-Da-Ga-O). Continue 0.2 miles to the summit of Big Crow. With a view of close to 30 high peaks it is well worth the visit!
Now retrace your steps back to the junction and take a left.
The trail from the junction is unmarked but easy to follow for those familiar with unmarked trails. The trail travels in and out of the forest opening up to many open rock areas along the way with spectacular views. It travels over Coal Dirt Hill
and Weston Mountain before descending to Lost Pond and Gulf Brook.
This is a beautiful fall hike with so much to see.
