Great Range Loop Professional Review and Guide
"It’s an Adirondack classic, an epic hike along a river, past waterfalls, and across the most famous ridge in the High Peaks, over four 4,000-footers—Gothics, Armstrong, Upper Wolfjaw, and Lower Wolfjaw Mountains.
This route is a long one over rugged terrain. Only experienced, physically fit hikers should attempt this loop. The hike, while very challenging, is also spectacular. By early October expect ice on the northern side of each peak, which can make the steep rocky descents extremely slick and challenging."
