Sawyer Mountain NYSDEC Trailhead

Central Adirondack Trail, State Rt. 28 and State Rt. 30, near Indian Lake in Hamilton County

A great beginner hike only about 1.1 miles to a summit.

At 2.2 miles round trip, with an easy climb, this is one of the easiest summits in the Adirondacks. There are partial views from ledges near the summit, which is wooded, but a bit further along there is a rock ledge with a scenic overlook. Located between Indian Lake and f Blue Mountain Lake on the west side of Route 28, the parking is well marked.
