Giant Mountain and Rocky Peak Ridge

This 11 mile shuttled-car hike is one of my favorite of all the Adirondack 46. You'll bag two more 4,000 foot peaks and descend over many smaller ones as you travel east down Rocky Peak Ridge. The...

The Dix Range
The Dix Range

I debated quite a bit whether to create a guide for the Dix Range from Elk Lake which often is the most used trail to these peaks. If you go that route you can climb a small slide on Macomb by...

Mt. Marcy
Mt. Marcy

This is actually the slightly longer approach to Mt. Marcy but I feel like it is a better one because it offers a loop hike at the end using two different trails. If you were to do a loop hike from...

Round Pond Peaks
Round Pond Peaks

Make sure to follow the track in this guide closely to find your way over these peaks. If you get to POI #4 and you don't want to walk up the stream towards Twin Pond and Round Pond in the woods you...

Snow Mountain - Adirondack High Peaks Area

Snow mountain, at 2,360 feet, is not one of the tallest peaks in the High Peaks area of the Adirondacks but it has just as good of a view as some of it's taller neighbors. The trail to the top is...
