Considering the mileage, it’s a relatively easy hike to a restored ?re tower and the best view of the Saint Regis Canoe Area. Saint Regis Mountain is a short hike if you take a boat across Upper Saint Regis Lake, but if you must go by car, you’ll need to follow the full route, which is described here. It’s a 6-miler, but it’s easy terrain-wise, as most of the route is the approach to the mountain, not the ascent. And it’s very pretty, especially when the leaves reach their peak color in the fall (late September here) due to the many maples in the forest mix.
