Coney Mountain

Coney Mountain

A shorter hike in the Tupper area, Coney 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.

Trailhead

Google Directions

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)

Champlain Area Trails (CATS)

The trails that make up CATS provide different vistas than other areas of the Adirondacks, namely in that many of the trails look out over and meander alongside the shores of Lake Champlain, something uncommon in the rest of the Adirondacks.

If you’re trying to escape the crowds flocking to the more frequented Adirondack hikes, Cooper Kiln is a wonderful trail to explore. Outside of Wilmington, NY, it meanders easily through the valley between two small mountains and ends at a beautiful pond with a lean-to and space to tent camp at the pond.

Goodman Mountain
Goodman Mountain

A gradual hike up to an open summit, Goodman Mountain is a nice, gradual hike for families and dogs, or those looking to get in a moderate hike with a good view from the top. While the view is well worth the trip up, the trail up Goodman is also beautiful, weaving through hardwood forests and opening up to a couple of vistas along the way.
