The Crane Event  Sucess!

An adventurous loop, with fun scrambling both ways and nice views at the summit and at the pond.

Great Little Peak  Sucess!

Did this on our way home to PA after doing Marcy the day before. I'm not quite sure how I did it, considering I tore my hamstring on Marcy and wouldn't be able to walk within the next day or so, but I did. Anyway, there are great views, fun scrambling, and a nice lake on this little mountain. I skipped the ladder on the way up in favor of climbing the rocks, which made it even more fun!!

Earliest peak climb!

My earliest peak climb as a young Boy Scout. Following this one, I did many High Peaks climbs afterwards over the next 6 or 7 years

Good Hike  Sucess!

Been wanting to do this hike since the fall with my son and finally had the chance. We did the long loop coming back on the Putnam trail. The views at the top were spectacular. The pond was a great place on the way down to stop for lunch and just enjoy the beauty of the adirondacks.

Once in Summer/Once in winter  Sucess!

Winter hike was sheer ice and brutal cold in January. Summer hike was exact opposite, but great views in the summer, icy summit in the winter.

Loop Hike  Sucess!

We started out by doing the 1.4 mile (short trail) to the peak of Crane Mountain. From the peak we wandered down to the lake, and from the lake we returned on the Putnam trail that eventually took us to a fire road. The total loop distance was 4.9 miles. It is about a mile down to the lake from the peak, and then, I'm estimating, it's about 2.5 miles back to the parking lot. The return trail came out a little bit down the road from the parking lot, whereas the ascent trail started from the North East corner of the parking lot.

I must admit that the 1.4 mile walk to the peak has a very steep section at the beginning, but since the walk is so short it's not a tough hike overall. It's fun to climb the two ladders along the way to the peak.

Read my trip report.

nice variety  Sucess!

Went there on a rainy day that opened to nice views. We did a loop trip, with exploration N of the pond. Saw a beaver, red efts, etc. -- all a refreshing change from my dry home state of NV.

Many times  Sucess!

I've climbed this mountain probably close to 30 times. Every time is enjoyable and different. It's a wonderful hike
