Noonmark Mountain, Round Pond Professional Reviews and Guides

"This is a steady climb to a round, bald summit with many views of the 4,000-footers from the open rock along much of the route. Noonmark Mountain is so named because it is due south of Keene Valley and marks the noon position of the sun. It’s a sturdy 2,177 feet o vertical gain in only 2.9 miles, but there is a lot to see along the way as you scramble up rocks and ladders.

From the hiker parking lot, continue up Ausable Road on foot. This dirt road is private, one of two ways into the heart of the Ausable Club, but a public right-of-way for hikers."

"This long loop goes over two mountains with many views of the
4,000-footers from the open rock along much of the route.
There are several options for climbing Noonmark and Round Mountains, individually or together. The route described here is a big loop that goes over both peaks. Noonmark (elevation 3,471 feet) is the highpoint of the loop, both literally and
figuratively.

The mountain is due south of Keene Valley and marks the noon position of the sun, hence its name. It’s a sturdy 2,177 feet of vertical in only 2.6 miles, but there is a lot to see along the way as you scramble up rocks and ladders. Round Mountain (elevation 3,084 feet) is an aptly named hump with many “view windows,” each one better than the next."
