Short walk to this more isolated northern Adirondack mountain.

From the parking lot the trail begins at the gate and follows the red marked discs. The former observers cabin site is at 0.3 miles. At this point the trail ascends steadily. You will reach the crest of the hill at 0.9 miles. The summit is mostly open and features a fire tower. You can see the Seward Range, Debar Mountain and some of the St Regis Canoe Area ponds.

Take time and explore the summit!
