Snowy Mountain

Snowy Mountain Professional Review and Guide

"Snowy Mountain is considered by many as the 47th High Peak, even though at 3,899 feet tall, it falls just under the 4,000-foot threshold to be considered one of the famous 46 High Peaks. However, recent surveys have shown that 4 of the 46 peaks are under 4,000 feet and 2 (Nye Mountain and Couchsachraga) are actually shorter than Snowy Mountain.

Unlike many mountain hikes featured in the book, this is not one of the “bald” peaks that provide the aweinspiring views for which the Adirondack mountaintops are famous. But just because it is not a bald peak does not mean the mountain is short on views. Indeed there are a couple of stunning lookouts near the peak, but the real gem is the 360-degree panorama atop the
45-foot-tall accessible fire tower."
