Hike to Nine Corner Lake

Rate this Adventure New York Nine Corner Lake Trailhead

Added by Rebecca Nichols

Short fairly level hike to this popular scenic swimming hole!

There is plenty of parking here with large pull-offs on both sides of the road. The trail is a wide old road. Soon after you sign the register you will pass a gate and continue. This is actually a snowmobile trail in winter as well if you enjoy snowmobiling.

At about the half way mark you will cross a small stream and pass by many small cascades. This area is known to be wet.

At 0.9 miles you will reach the lake. There is usually a rope tied to the tree if you want to swing and jump in to cool off. You can also continue along the trail as it skirts along the lakes edge where you can jump in from the rocks.

The area is also known as a popular spot for bouldering.

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!

Hike the North Point Loop

New York / Butter Hill Trailhead

There is three different trailheads to access the North Point Loop.  I chose the trailhead that would give me the longest hike.  That would be the Butter Hill parking area on Route 9W north.

Hike the Cornish/Brook/Notch/Washburn/Undercliff Loop

New York / Washburn Trailhead

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.
