We hiked this 2-mile out-and-back trail near Corinth, New York. It seemed like an easy hike for a hot summer day, but actually was a moderately challenging one, it took us about 2 hrs to complete.
The trail rose along a jeep track from the parking area past some large power lines and quickly ducked into the woods. After about .6 miles up we turned right on a short rocky trail under tall power lines to another forested trail under cover for the rest of the climb up. We passed quite a few other trails on the way, but just keep following the YELLOW trail markers.
Finally, and harder than it should’ve been, we made to the first overlook. We could see the Hudson River on it’s way toward Corinth. We decided to continue on and find another nice overlook after another .7 miles along the ridge, we proceeded until it was heading down knowing it was going back up to a parking area just off Spier Falls Road at its summit (we are thinking to try the reverse Spier Mountain Trail next time. We could come down retracing our path or continue up from there into the Moreau Lake area.
We will simply return down the way we came.
