St. Regis Mountain Trail Professional Reviews and Guides

"Enjoy a scenic half-day hike to open ledges overlooking the St. Regis Canoe Area and more than 30 lakes and ponds, as well as the High Peaks."

"A relatively easy hike, considering the mileage, to a restored
fire tower and a fantastic view of the Saint Regis Canoe Area. Saint Regis Mountain is a short hike if you take a boat across
Upper Saint Regis Lake, but if you must go by car, you’ll
need to follow the full route, which is described here.

It’s over 6 miles, but it’s easy terrain-wise, as most of the route is the approach to the mountain, not the ascent. And it’s very pretty, especially when the leaves reach their peak color in the fall (late September here) due to the many maples in the forest mix."

"Best known for its mostly flat terrain, the northern section of the Adirondacks has many excellent extended canoe trips. Most notable is the Saint Regis Canoe Area. However, looming over this area of hundreds of ponds, lakes, and interconnected waterways is Saint Regis Mountain. For truly majestic views, its summit is unsurpassed.

The trail, marked with red disks, follows generally rolling terrain through mature hardwoods dotted with large hemlocks. Approximately 0.3 mile in, you will pass a sheer rock face covered in moss and ferns. This adds some variation to the hike, but the dominant feature before the summit is the deep forest."

"Considering the mileage, it’s a relatively easy hike to a restored ?re tower and the best view of the Saint Regis Canoe Area. Saint Regis Mountain is a short hike if you take a boat across Upper Saint Regis Lake, but if you must go by car, you’ll need to follow the full route, which is described here.

Long lead in then moderately steep climb that is very wet, muddy slippery. The trail is the water flow in many places. There are steps and wooden bridges in places helping with this. View from top is amazing.
