Climbed this peak on a hot and humid afternoon. Did a little trail run to the top. My shirt was soaked!!!
Managed to catch a great sunset at the peak
I climbed it via the Hogtown trail. It's a nice easy hike, even for a slow hiker, and has good views of the lake. Definitely worth the few hours it takes.
I failed to summit on a trip in Feb, made it to just below the summit on the southern overlook from Pilot Knob. Hiked again in April from Hogtown and had a great clear views of the lake.
nice view of the lake,,quick hike..
EARLY Spring Hike, 1st of the year. Cold and windy up top with some snow showers moving thru. Nice easy hike. Great Views! Barely even feel the 2000 foot elev. gain.
Nice day and some interesting stream crossings. Summit was cold and windy with views of snow on Mt.Marcy.
Gorgeous day, beautiful view of Lake George from the summit.
Been up here several times, as I worked at nearby Chingachgook Outdoor Center. Walked straight from my cabin to the trail.
nice views of Lake George and distant High Peaks
This is a great hike to take really at any time, but... if you do not like the crowds may I suggest early spring and early in the morning being that this can be a hot spot for tourist in the Adirondacks. an easyer climb, steep at the end
If in the ADK region you should climb Buck. It is a short hike that can be done in a few hours. The view from the summit is spectacular. You can see Lake George from south to north and on clear days all the way to the high peaks and into Vermont.
I particularly like it in the late summer when you can come across some wild blueberries near the top. They can make for a nice snack before coming down.
