Mount Colvin Loop

Mount Colvin Loop Professional Review and Guide

"If you like waterfalls, cliff- top perches and views of numerous 4,000-footers, this hike will wow you at every turn. Technically the trailhead is at the gatehouse, 0.8 mile from the trailhead parking lot, but this hike description includes the stretch from the parking lot to the gatehouse, as it adds 1.6 miles to the total hike. There’s no short route to the top of Mount Colvin, which is named for Verplanck Colvin, the man responsible for the first survey of the Adirondacks during the 1870s. Colvin and his crew were the first to climb it.

Though a long day if you do this loop as a day hike, it rewards you handsomely with a lot of everything people enjoy about hiking in the Adirondacks—panoramic views, a beautiful river, cliff-top perches, impressive waterfalls, potential wildlife watching, and colorful foliage in the fall."
