Like many peak trails in the Adirondacks, this trail begins along level terrain but quickly steepens as you approach the summit. Near the peak, the trail is particularly steep—near vertical in some sections—and will require use of your hands in some sections. But the climb is worth it, and you will be rewarded with a sprawling panorama of the Northern Adirondacks. The first decision you will have to make is whether to park in the public parking area located near the beach or at the trailhead parking area, via the access road. The distance from the public parking area to the end of the access road is roughly 0.7 mile, so parking at its end will reduce the trip by about a 1.4 miles overall.
