Pharaoh Mountain and Lake Loop

Pharaoh Mountain and Lake Loop Professional Review and Guide

"In the Schroon Lake area of the Eastern Adirondacks, this all-day or overnight hike
tags the summit of Pharaoh Mountain and encircles large, deep Pharaoh Lake, touring
mixed forest and wetland meadows. Summit and shore vistas, swimming and trout
fishing, an expansive marsh, convenient overnight lean-tos, prized solitude, and fall
color swell this Pharaoh’s treasure cache."

The mountain portion is very steep and difficult, especially with a backpack. It's not called "strenuous" just because of the length! There is a blue-marked trail along the west shore that is not shown on the map of this trail guide. This trail could be used to create a shorter loop going over the summit and then along just the west shore.
