"A local favorite to a nice view of many landmark mountains in the High Peaks region. There are three approaches up Baxter Mountain. This one (blue NYSDEC markers) is the shortest and easiest. The trail is smooth and flat as you enter the woods. It immediately passes through a power-line cut and then climbs easily through white birch, hemlock, and firs. It ascends some broad log steps as more hardwoods come into the mix, and then becomes steeper, though nothing harsh." Read more
