OverviewMcKenzie mountain is located next to Lake Placid in the Wilderness area that bears it's name. The views from the ledges on the wooded summit are fantastic. This mountain can be combined with a climb up nearby Moose Mtn. McKenzie is the 55th highest peak in the Adirondack 100 Highest.
Red TapeThe eastern flank of the mountain down to lake placid is private lands, the trails in this area, and along the ridge are maintained by the SOA (Shore Owners Association).
CampingDEC camping regulations apply. There is the Placid lean-to along the Jackrabbit trail. There are other camping opportunities at Bartlett Pond and Loch Bonnie on Moose Mtn, just be aware ther is no camping on private lands in the area.
