Hadley Mountain Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"A short and steady climb to the top of this 2,680-foot bald summit provides great views of the southern Adirondacks. With a climbable fire tower, summertime summit steward, and a broad, open mountaintop ideal for a picnic, Hadley Mountain is an excellent choice for family outings.
The beginning of the trail is surrounded by a thick stand of hemlocks that continues to provide shade up to the trail register, where the evergreens give way to a mainly beech and birch forest that is thick with saplings and shades the trail for most of the climb. The trail, marked by red DEC markers, begins to ascend immediately and continues steadily uphill for nearly 1 mile, where it levels off for a while before the ﬁnal climb to the summit."
