Giant’s Nubble via the Ridge Trail Professional Review and Guide

"A pleasant hike to a rocky lookout and a remote tarn on Giant
Mountain, great for those who want a view but don’t want to
scale an entire 4,000-footer. Giant’s Nubble is a knob of rock on the southern side of Giant Mountain, the tallest peak in the Giant Mountain Wilderness. There are two approaches to the Nubble, one from the Roaring Brook Trail and the other from the Ridge Trail, which are 1.3 miles apart on NY 73.

If you have two cars, you can start at one end and hike to
the other, which is about the same mileage as doing it as an out-and- back. It is not a good idea to walk beside NY 73, which winds through a narrow ravine between the two trailheads, with a guardrail on one side and a steep hillside on the other."
