Kane Mountain

Kane Mountain Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"A short, kid-friendly hike to a restored fire tower and views of the Canada Lake region. Kane Mountain is a small peak on the northwestern side of Green Lake in the Shaker Mountain Wild Forest, a 40,500-acre preserve known for the southern terminus of the Northville–Lake Placid Trail, the “long trail” of the Adirondacks.

Though Kane may be a minor peak, it is worth visiting the restored fire tower on its summit for a view of the Catskills to the south, the High Peaks to the north, and the many nearby lakes."

Cool, foggy day. Great hiking. Trail slippery at times. Went up the east trail and came down the north trail. Side trip to Pine Lake, then back along north trail to the trail head.
