Hike to Mount Arab Fire Tower

Rate this Adventure 2.2 miles 764 ft gain  - Out-and-Back Trail

Added by The Outbound Collective

Easy, short hike with 360 views featuring Tupper Lake and the High Peaks.

Located just a couple miles outside of Tupper Lake this little hike is a gem. The trailhead starts just across the street from the parking area. The 1.1 mile one-way trail is marked with red discs and easy to follow.

The trail has a moderate incline in areas. It follows the northern ridge of the mountain and keeps the steeper slopes to your right. You will see a small cliff on your left that you will soon be on top of. From there, the trail moderates nicely before topping out on the open summit.

Climb the tower for amazing views!

This mountain is part of the Tupper Lake Triad. You can climb Arab as well as Coney Mountain & Goodman Mountain to earn a patch. This is a great family challenge to involve young children in.

This is also a great snowshoe hike in winter.
