Big Slide Mountain | 4,240ft

Big Slide - Adirondacks

Big Slide is the 27th highest mountain among the Adirondack 46 High Peaks. One of the most popular trails (the route we took) is via the Brothers. The Brothers are a group of 3 mountains you climb on your way to the Big Slide summit. This trail offers some great variety, with multiple viewpoints along the way. The summit offers clear views of the Great Range from a cool perspective.

Hiking Distance: 8 miles RT via The Brothers route

Winter Hike up Wright Peak

With an elevation of 4,587 feet, Wright is the 16th highest peak in the Adirondack Park.  Evan (the extra ambitious one of the two of us) wanted to try for a sunrise hike so after a 4am wake-up call, we made our way to the High Peaks Trailhead at the Adirondack Loj.

Copperas Pond
Copperas Pond

Copperas Pond is a great short hike for anyone. The trailhead is located between Wilmington and Lake Placid. From Route 86, it's about a 0.5 mile climb to the pond. Once you reach the pond, you can go in either direction along the side of it. If you go right, you shortly come across a nice lean-to with a fireplace and a view of the pond.
