Snowy Mountain NYSDEC Trailhead

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

The trailhead is accessed via a parking lot on NYS Route 30, about 6.5 miles south of Indian Lake in the southern High Peaks.

Snowy Mountain is the tallest mountain in the southern Adirondacks and the trail to its top, especially the final climb, is very steep and demanding. You'll enjoy outstanding views of Indian Lake, the distant High Peaks and unbroken wilderness from the rocky summit ledges, which are dangerous and should be approached with caution. The fire tower on the summit was recently restored for safe public use. The hike is almost 8 miles, round trip.
