Gothics Mountain | 4,736ft

Gothics Mountain

Gothics Mountain, part of the Great Range in the High Peaks Region, is most well-known for it's dramatic slides.  At 4736 feet tall, Gothics is the tenth highest mountain in the Adirondacks. This peak can be reached via the St. Hubert's parking area/trailhead or via The Garden in Keene Valley.  Heading out from St. Hubert's on a beautiful fall day, Evan and I made our way to Gothics after first making a pit stop at Pyramid Peak.  Pyramid is definitely worth a visit!  It offers stunning views of Gothics and the surrounding peaks of the Great Range (side-note: I may also be slightly biased about how great it is since Evan proposed there that day!).  After summiting Pyramid Peak, continue another 0.3 miles up a fairly steep trail to the summit of Gothics.  We were treated to clear views of blue sky, mountains, and some splashes of fall color in the surrounding forests.

Stillwater Mountain
Stillwater Mountain

Stillwater is located at the westernmost periphery of the Park. The fire tower was recently renovated and reopened in July 2016, and as a result is in great shape. There are gorgeous views both from the summit and the fire tower, but if you go make sure not to go between the second Tuesday of October and December 20th -- the trail and fire tower are both closed during that time to accommodate hunting on the land.

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.
