Coney Mountain Trailhead

Adirondack Trail, State Rt. 30, near Tupper Lake in Franklin County

A moderately to heavily used unmarked hiking path exists east of Route 30 on the Hamilton-Franklin county line that ascends to Coney Mountain.

Current parking is limited. Steeper portions of the path have erosion problems, but the DEC will be developing a better trail and switch backs, constructing them where feasible. This path is highlighted in an extensive tourism program known as the Ten Rivers project. As a result, use of the path is likely to increase significantly though the site should be able to support such use.
