View Full Version : An oversight, oops

When we discovered the trail up Stillwater Mt was officially closed, yes trail sign gone and posted signs halfway up is understood to mean closed, it meant with the summiting of Woodhull Mt the day before I had finished climbing all the summits with a legal trail in the Adks. Well not true! by some oversight I never got around to climbing Moose Mt in Lake Placid. Hmmm, guess where my next hike will be! Next week likely tues or Wed depending on weather. If you guys have nothing better to do let me know.

I won't be around, but I just did Moose on Memorial Day w/e. It's a Gem, the trail also extends 3+ miles over to McKenzie summit and the walk between the two is incredibly pleasant.
No more then 7-7.5 hours for the whole loop.

Nicely done even though. How about Coney Mountain outside of tupper Lake. That has a trail now, but is forgotten by so many.
My goal is to actually some day climb all named peaks (hill, Mtn., Peak, Cobble if it's got a name I want it)in the Adirondacks. Will this happen?? I really don't know but I'm sure putting one hell of a dent in it. Up to just over 400 right now. What does that leave me about a thousand. :)

Spence I may very well do that. I looked it up and it seems it is an unofficial trail. Here is an interesting link and yes I did the others listed there. Floodwood Mt was the most recent of this bunch last fall. We just stumbled upon it while hiking the lake country in the area. That Floodwood Loop is a nice hike if you want a full day of lake hopping. There appears to be a lot of nice campsites scattered about in there.
