Coney Mountain

Coney Mountain - Pure Adirondacks

A shorter hike in the Tupper Lake area, Coney Mountain boasts an expansive view (especially during fall foliage!), and is a great quick hike to take the kids on – for a fall lunchtime picnic on top, or as a morning hike in the summer before spending the hotter part of the day on the water.

Trail Stats

Distance: 2.2 miles round-trip

Elevation: 2,265 ft

Ascent: 515 ft

Beginning at the trailhead just off of route 30, the relatively new trail up Coney Mountain (created in 2009) is well-built and takes you up 1.1 miles to the summit. The elevation gain is gentle and winding, and not too challenging for the 1.1 mile distance, which makes it a good hike for young families. When you reach the summit you will have a 360-degree view of the Tupper Lakes and nearby High Peaks, specifically Santanoni and the Sewards.

Follow route 30 south from Tupper Lake for 10 miles, and you will see a marked pullover and small parking area at the trailhead on your left. (Just one mile south of Goodman Mountain’s trailhead)

Keep it PURE

Remember to Leave No Trace! Buy a physical map, read it, plan, and prepare. Think about the NYS Rangers and medical personnel that exhaust themselves for a rescue that could have been avoided. Pack out your trash. Use a bear canister when primitive camping and cook away from where you’re sleeping. Do the rock walk to help reduce the impact on fragile alpine vegetation. Camp at designated campsites and never camp on or near summits.
