Information

This is one of the most popular summit of the Adirondack. The two main trails are at 1 km (Roaring Brook Trail) and at 3 km (Ridge Trail) South from St-Hubert. The Ridge Trail is the most spectacular one with from the middle of its height a long bare rock section with many viewpoints toward the West over the Dix Range, The Great Range, Mt. Marcy, Algonquin Peak and up to Cascade Mt.. This trail difficulty is similar to the one of Algonquin Peak from Heart Lake. They have similar length and high. The beginning of the Ridge Trail is very steep whereas the one of Algonquin Peak is very progressive. The second most popular approach is the Roaring Brook Trail that passes a side trail leading to a waterfall (Roaring Brook Falls) then follows a ridge with some viewpoints to the summit. It is possible to make a long loop using those two trails.
