First hike after a long summer of dealing with persistent plantar fasciitis and then Lyme disease. Still sore and weak, but it was fun and felt great to DO something. Views of the foliage were excellent, and then we walked around the lake before dark.

Was part of a small hiking group out of Albany. Took the long trail. Light snow falling the entire time. Enough people had gone ahead of us that snowshoes were not required, however, microspikes were much needed (ice under the whole trail). Excellent climb. Okay views from the top due to the weather. Well worth the climb.

Summitted Mt. Jo in preparation for the hike up to Mt. Marcy. Completed as a circuit, taking the Short Trail up and the Long Trail down. Stayed at the Adirondak Loj, quite a nice place.

Climbed via Nature Trail from the Adirondack Loj. A short, easy climb that provided some great views from the summit ledges, especially of the McIntyre Range to the South and of the Great Range to the East.

Went on this one with my dad because he had out of shape friends from work with him that didn't want to do a high peak.

Climbed this with the dog. Had to lift him up onto one ledge. I've been up Jo a million times & it's always a pleasure. A nice clear day, spent a while on top identifying peaks with other hikers. The dog was scared of the edge. Took the long trail down, don't think I'd ever gone that way before. Also did Owl's Head on this trip - took the baby up for her first summit - a great short hike, similar to Jo.

Up the short trail and down the long trail. I couldn't be contained on the bottom, fell, and scraped my knee. The ranger came and taught me to slow down a little. Came back ca. 2000 and still agree that this is one of the best view vs. effort hikes out there.

I had been hiking in the high peaks for 12 years before I ever climbed this little gem. What an astounding view from the top!

My son and I hiked up Mt. Jo during my first visit to Adirondack Lodge in September 2005. We hiked up the steeper, shorter trail and down the slightly longer, less steep trail. There's a spot at the top that's almost a false summit if you don't pay attention. We stopped there and I wasn't too impressed until we found our way to the actuall summit. Nice views for a little mountain like that and gave me a nice view of Algonquin on the other side of the lake, which I'll be hiking next week.

It was our last and only half day in Adirondacks so we decided to do this short hike which started right behind our cabin. The sun was shining the whole 3 days, but this last day was very murky and it was snowing. The view was supposed to be very rewarding for such a short hike, but I did not expect to see much. I was mistaken even with the snow there was a little bit of sunshine coming through the clouds so our view was not too disappointing just little different than from the previous hikes. Still very pleasant hike, but in winter crampons are a must. It is very rocky with a little bit of scrambling at the top part.

I stepped too close to a yellowjacket nest on the way down and was attacked. Was glad I wore jeans that day - only one got me in the noggin.

This mountain probably has one of the best views for the effort in the daks. I try to climb it on every trip if time allows. It's a great vantage point to check out some of the high peaks before climbing them.
