Debar Mountain Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Like many peak trails in the Adirondacks, this trail begins along level terrain but quickly steepens as you approach the summit. Near the peak, the trail is particularly steep—near vertical in some sections—and will require use of your hands in some sections. But the climb is worth it, and you will be rewarded with a sprawling panorama of the Northern Adirondacks.

The first decision you will have to make is whether to park in the public parking area located near the beach or at the trailhead parking area, via the access road. The distance from the public parking area to the end of the access road is roughly 0.7 mile, so parking at its end will reduce the trip by about a 1.4 miles overall."

"A peaceful woodland hike that climbs to an uncrowded open rock perch and a view of Meacham Lake. Debar Mountain is one of those hikes that clears the head and calms the soul. Named for John Debar, a Canadian fur trapper who traveled through the area in 1817, there are other nearby peaks that are bigger, balder, and better known, but it still offers a nice view from a rock perch where a fire tower formerly stood."
