Added by The Outbound Collective

If you're looking for a good hiking workout, with 2300 feet of elevation gain in less than 2.1 miles, this is your climb!

This trail actually begins off an easement of private roads at the Ausable Club. From the main road, you will see the Register and signage showing 2.1 miles to Noonmark. Continue on a gravel road until an arrow directs you to take a right into the woods. Follow the Stimson Trail to the summit. The trail varies in steepness but never lets up.

Along the way there are several lookouts, with the views more spectacular at each one.

At the summit you will have views of other surrounding mountains, including Dix, Giant, Sawteeth and the Great Range.

Noonmark Mnt

One of my favorite hikes! Challenging and fun with a great view at the top.

Driving Directions update

The driving directions associated with this hike need a bit of an update for the coming from the north. The parking is as the second and southerly junction of Ausable Rd. (not "Auable Club Rd.) and Rt. 73. it is across the highway from th Roaring Brook access to Giant Mt. On a busy weekend you will likely have to park on the highway.

Great Hike

I hiked to Noonmark from the Round Pond parking lot on 73. A bit longer than from Ausable parking area. Easy 2+ miles past Round Pond to a trail intersection. Last 1.1 miles is almost a 1300 foot ascent in 1.1 miles. Rock scrambles can be a challenge for the out of shape hiker. Beautiful views from the top!
