|Date:||Sunday, October 12, 2008|
|Ascent Type:||Successful Summit Attained|
| Location:||USA-New York|
| Elevation:||2349 ft / 715 m|
Ascent Trip ReportPerhaps the most beautifull, rewarding short family hike in all of the ADK, the view over Fulton Chain Lakes is spectacular especially this time of the year. Lot of bare rock on the trail, ideal for kids. The kids won't be complaining "How much further".
I've never seen so many people out on a mountain before today, the large parking lot and the narrow Rondaxe road off of rte 28, leading to the parking lot, was full of cars.
