I want to try this 11.0-mile out-and-back trail near Schroon, New York. It should take about 4-5 hrs to complete. Start at the Crane Pond Road Trailhead.
This is a nice trail, moderate for most of the hike, but does get very steep toward the summit. A short climb up a nice mountain in the southern Adirondacks with great views over a lake with the same name.
This approach from Crane Pond is less steep then the eastern side one from Pharaoh Lake. From the top you will have great views in every direction over the vast Pharaoh Lake wilderness. This is a great hike for every season.
Users report that the road is poorly maintained, and a high-clearance vehicle like a jeep is recommended.
