This peak is awesome. The trail from Giant is quite technical. Greatest view in the ADK imo.

The descent from Giant is significant. 1000 ft. or more. Going up Rocky Peak from the "valley" is fairly easy going, however the return to Giant is a beast. I loved the summit view of Giant as well as of the ridge leading up from New Russia. I will hike this again from NR in the future.

technicolorNH2nd summit of the day  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 23, 2014


Took forty four minutes from the summit of Giant Mountain to the summit here. The trail here was much softer and easier than the grind up Giant. Good views, especially to the lake in the east. Did it with Bob from CT, who at age 55, had eleven years on me and he set a pace that was right at the limits of my ability.

OnagerRough, but fun hike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 28, 2012


Hiked Rocky Peak Ridge 4420' after ascending its neighbor Giant Mountain. Challenging hike due to a steep, wet trail descending to the col between the two mountains. Low visibility made the summit uninteresting. Had to back track back down the col and up the steep section of Giant we had descended earlier. Was very slippery and muddy and made the trek much longer than was expected, forcing us to hike the last hour in the dark with headlamps (We got lost at one point and our group of 4 turned into 2 groups of 2) It was a successful trip regardless of the conditions/visibility and a slight navigation issue.

Laurence and I left Montreal at 8 o'clock, after deciding to go buy some micro spikes at the Mountaineer in Keene. (It was worth it, especially for RPR). We made it to the summit of Giant by the Zander Scott trail. We had the fortunate surprise of meeting our friend Genevieve lounging on the summit with 2 friends. They wanted to do Hopkins Mt, but we were set on doing RPR. We parted ways after un small lunch. The descend to the col between Giant and RPR was icy, microspikes helped a lot. We were back at the car around 6 PM. Sunny skies all day.

Hitched a ride from Chapel Pond TH to New Russia TH and took the East Trail up over Bald Mtn past Lake Luise to RPR with great views along the way, almost made us forget the 5000+ ft climb! Visited Giant and descended to Chapel Pond as the sun set behind the Mtns, a great day.

Hiked over to RPR after having lunch atop Giant. The hike between the two seemed a little shorter that what it seems when looking from one to the other. Great day and RPR was quiet and peaceful. I plan on trying the east route from Rt 9 sometime soon, the ridge looked pretty neat.

Date Climbed: May 16, 2010


Went back to RPR after running out of time on a previous hike on the east ridge. This time I went up Giant, and the made the cross over. It was a great spring day for hiking. Would like to one day go back and go the whole way on the east ridge.
