Algonquin Peak

A day hike loop to Algonquin Peak for a total of 19 km in 7 hours including 1 hour of rest. This was my first hike in the Adirondack. The start is from the parking area at Heart Lake. This is a unique way to discover in one trip many spectacular points of the Adirondaks: Algonquin Peak, Avalanche Lake, Avalanche Pass and Marcy Dam. Warning: This is a long hike that required a good physical condition, so it's not recommended to some one without a good hiking experience.
