Goodnow Mountain Trail Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Actually, this is one of the better-developed trails in the Adirondacks, and for the most part the grades remain moderate. Broad switchbacks help in this respect. The trail begins by leading southwest, but it swings more easterly when it intercepts an old road and bears left onto it. From the foundations of an old cabin, there is a very pleasing view of Fishing Brook Mountain. The trail reaches a saddle between the various summit knobs, where you will find an old horse barn beside the trail. This is a relic of a bygone day, when the mountain’s former owner, Archer Huntington, had a camp nearby. The timeworn barn and a well are all that remain now, both merely a curiosity along the trail."
