Mount Jo Loop Professional Review and Guide
"This short, kid- friendly hike follows an interpretive trail to a big view of the High Peaks. Mount Jo is a small hike that delivers a close- in look at the biggest peaks in the Adirondacks. Its trailhead shares a parking lot with the trailheads to Mount Marcy, Algonquin, Wright, and a number of the other giants of the High Peaks. Originally called Bear Mountain, it was renamed in the 1870s for Josephine Schofield, fiancée of Henry Van Hoevenberg, the Adirondack guide who masterminded the original Adirondak Loj and who laid out many of the trails that begin here."
