Hiked up here as #3 fire tower peak of the day. I took the newer, slightly longer, less steep trail to the summit. This trail starts at a trailhead about 1 mile south of the old trail, so there are 2 options or you could do a loop hike. The trail was in great shape and interesting. The views at the summit were awesome with or without the firetower, which could be climbed to just below the cab, which was locked. I have to try the old trail next time!
Fun short hike and the fire tower is great. The winds were unbelievably strong.
Hiked up with my little sister to end the year right! Very easy with crampons on, without them it would be quite tough. The snow was very icey and there was a decent windchill up at the summit. Easy out and back, very fun.

I took my kids and my Nephew up it at night. It was a nice climb. People were camped at the summit. Looking forward to returning to do some climbing very soon...JW
Nice warm spring day, views from the summit of Lake Champlain were nice. Firetower cab was locked, but is open in the summer. Saw some falcons near the cliffs.
Big group. Everyone came. Even the grandparents. Had a ball. Kids rode in backpacks. Sunny and nice stiff breeze on top. Good Memories!
A nice stopover on our honeymoon.
What a day for a hike. Sunny and clear with lite winds.Beautiful!!!! You don,t get to many days like this any time of the year. Emil
Very beautiful during the winter months
Hiked when in college at Plattsburgh. Good views ,it was fun to run down the trail.
What a fun short climb. CLIMB THE FIRETOWER, it's worth the effort.
