Scenic and Destination Hikes Central Adirondack Association Region
Length: a 3.2 mile round trip
A relatively moderate climb to the top of one of the area's minor peaks where on a clear day a mega-view can be had for a modest effort.1
This 3.2 mile round trip hike starts from a remote Boy Scout Reservation, traversing gently rolling terrain through a hardwood forest to a final half-mile of steep terrain. You are rewarded with surprisingly good views overlooking the vast array of ponds and lakes below as well as the distant High Peaks.
From Paul Smiths follow State Rt. 30 south to Lake Clear. Continue on Rt. 30 to the Saranac Inn. Turn right onto Floodwood Rd. and follow for approximately 7 miles to trail.
