Enjoy beautiful views of Thirteenth Lake and surrounding mountains from the ledges of this short hike.
Weather you're short on time or pairing this with another area hike, this little trek will leave you satisfied. Starting at the end of Old Farm Road you will walk into the woods on a continuation of what was the road. The forest has reclaimed it, in just a few short years.
At approximately 0.16 miles you will reach a junction and register. After signing in you will turn left and follow the blue trail. It is a fairly easy terrain until you reach your next junction. Here you will take a right and follow the yellow trail. A sign will indicate that you have 0.6 miles left.
The trail will climb 400 feet before reaching the summit ledges. The ledge is a perfect spot for lunch with Thirteenth Lake below. You will see Hour Pond Mountain and its rocky cliffs.

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.
