Combined this mountain with Wright, Algonquin, and Iroquois. Epic day. Started at Lake Colden and traversed to the Loj. Looks like they are doing lots of maintenance up there.

Date Climbed: Sep 24, 2016


Solo hike from the Meadows trail head. Made great time on the loop to Colden Summit and back through Avalanche Pass. Never seen so many cars parked to access High Peaks from ADK Lodge.

CRiedel2Different Loop Hike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 10, 2016


I needed to bag Iroquois, so I decided to make a loop hike out of it. I started from the Loj, up Algonquin to Iroquois. Then down to Lake Colden and up the Mt Colden trail to the summit. Then returned going past Lake Arnold and back to the Loj. Nice loop, challenging!

aesopsplaygroundFrom bush whack from hell to summit of heaven  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 21, 2016
Party of four, started climbing then belated into the trap dike. Summited after free soloing a section then bush whacked to the summit. Got our asses beat by the rough (yet absolutely unbelievably beautiful and hard core) terrain. View from the top was well worth it. Especially from the view from the ridge to the east of it. Well worth the exhaustion. 14.5 miles over 14 hours. Just he break from society I needed. Recommended if your serious about getting your ass beat.

ColinzeyeSouthside from the Flowed Lands  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 22, 2014


Hiked in from the Loj early morning and set up camp by 1:30 at the south side tent sites of Lake Colden. After lunch, made a quick ru up the South side of Colden. Steep trail with a little ice, the pouring rain and cold summit temps made it tough. But on the way down, about 11 vertical feet from the summit, the sun broke for a few minutes blessing us with a perfect view of the flowed lands and Lake Colden in the valley. Not bad for the 1st of 46.

OnagerAwesome views  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Apr 6, 2013


Backpacked in from the Adirondack Loj on April 5th and spent the night at Lake Arnold. The Lake Arnold campsite was well above 3500' and very cold this time of the year. We awoke at 8:30am and summited nearby Mount Colden 4715' from Lake Arnold. The weather was clear and sunny, but still cold enough to require winter clothing and snowshoes. We arrived at the summit around 10:30am after climbing several false peaks. We headed back down the trail to Lake Arnold, melted snow for water, and packed up our tent and other gear. We made the 6 miles trek back down from Lake Arnold to the Loj with 45 lbs. of gear on each of our backs. The trip was quite the experience! Round trip we hiked over 16 miles.

Free soloed the Trap Dike and slabs to the top. No view, almost white out conditions. It snowed all day and there was a consistent 30 mph wind.

Great hike and the Trap Dike pretty straightforward if you do your research. Next time I will have to go down the slide on the other side.

By far, the greatest way to climb this mountain. Done it twice and would do it a third if I get the chance again!

Date Climbed: Sep 20, 2010


A loop hike from South Meadows TH to summit, down via Lake Colden/Avalanche Lake. Fall colors were nice, Avalanche Lake is one of the most breathtaking spots in the High Peaks.

Winter camping in the daks. Stayed at a lean to on lake Colden. Ascent was simple, but nice weather turned bad towards the summit, and the views were obstructed.
