The highlight of this short, kid-friendly hike is a restored ?re tower with 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 best known as 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.
