LAKE PLACID 9ER

9 Mountains in the Lake Placid area that aren't high peaks.
A great hiking challenge for those interested in becoming
46ers but want to start with some smaller hikes prior/

 

HIKING THE LAKE PLACID 9er

I wasn't planning on starting yet another challenge this year - but hey what the heck right?? I started this hiking challenge because I wanted to do some hikes in the Lake Placid region prior to the high peaks. They are much more mild, but offer some sweeping views of the ADK Mountains. I highly recommend for anyone looking to get the ADk high peak experience - but aren't quite ready to tackle those 4,000' mountain tops.

HURRICANE MOUNTAIN

My first of the Lake Placid 9er Challenge. 6.6 mile roundtrip hike climbing over 2,000' elevation. Stunning panoramic views and a firetower.
