Wright Peak

Wright Peak Professional Review and Guide

"This is a lower, shorter alternative to nearby Algonquin Peak, but with equally stunning views in all directions.

From Lake Placid, take NY 73 east toward Keene. Go 1.5 miles past the entrance to the Olympic ski jump complex, turn right (south) on Adirondack Loj Road. Go 4.6 miles to the end of the road and the sizable hiker parking area at Adirondak Loj. The trailhead is on the side of the parking lot directly in front of the information building. Note: There is a fee for parking here, which is discounted for members of the Adirondack Mountain Club."
