Comments: Good hike with nice plaque on Esther. On Whiteface you can see the great range off in the distance and Lake Placid down below. To the north if you look hard you can see a windmill farm. Interesting observatory on the peak as well. Another nice thing is you can have a hot lunch in the Castle, which we did. We had pizza and a panini.
