It’s the consummate small mountain with a big reward and a perfect kid hike to a view of the mountains and lakes around Saranac Lake, with the Great Range in the distance to the southeast. From the sign- in box at the trailhead, the broad, obvious path (red NYSDEC markers) enters the woods and soon begins to climb up a rock- strewn path. The trail is fairly steep at first, but the footing is good and it soon moderates. You pass through a pretty hardwood forest filled with maples and poplars, which glow red and yellow in late September and early October.
