Ascent Trip Report

I used this address to get to the trail head:
189 Forest Hill Ave Saranac Lake, NY 12983 ? 403 ft NW
Sugar and I started at the bottom of the trail at 6:15pm. The trail up is very nice and an easy hike. We made it to the top at 6:43pm. There are two BM that we took pictures with while on top. The top is totally wooded with no views, but to the south and southeast of the summit you have great views of the high peaks and the other Saranac 6 peaks of Haystack, McKenzie, and Moose. We made our way back down to the parking lot beside the lake arriving at 7:11pm. This was a nice cool down hike for sugar and I after doing the Santanoni Range. Total Mileage of 1.8 miles with 858 evaluation gain.
