Hike to Big Crow

Rate this Adventure New York Big Crow Trailhead

Added by Rebecca Nichols

Little effort gets you big rewards on this scenic Adirondacks hike!

Park at the end of O'Toole Rd to begin this short hike. Note that in winter you would have to walk a little further as part of the road is seasonal.

Follow the red disks to the summit of Big Crow at 2812 feet. The views are expansive including 28 major peaks. Major peaks include Giant, Dix, Cascade, Porter and the Great Range. If you want to make the trip a loop and a bit longer, you could continue on to Little Crow (2559 feet) and then down to Hurricane Road. You would then walk Hurricane Rd. back to the trailhead parking on O'Toole Rd. This loop would be a 3.3 mile trip.

I hike to push my limits both mentally and physically, take in the beauty of the great outdoors, and just to get away from it all. Every chance I get you will find me in the mountains, on a kayak or ending my day by the campfire!
