Above the east shore of Blue Mountain Lake, this quick, steep summit ascent reaches a fire tower, retired from duty but open for public viewing, and a cherished 360-degree Central Adirondack view.
Besides the sweeping vistas, the trail offers an attractive
fir-spruce forest and the historic summit benchmark placed by Verplanck Colvin. Colvin, an important early surveyor, helped open the Adirondacks to the public.
