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.

Trail Stats

Distance: 3.3 miles round-trip

Elevation: 2,178 ft

Ascent: 570 ft

The trail begins along an old road, rolling easily upwards towards the height of land at the one-mile mark. Here, a new trail veers away from the road and will take you to the summit. While the trail could be steeper and more direct to the summit at this point, it winds gradually up to the summit, taking a little over half a mile to get to the top in order to avoid causing further erosion and damage to the mountainside. After winding through the hardwood forest, the trail comes out on the mountain’s ridgeline, following this up to the summit. Once atop the mountain, you will have great views of nearby Tupper Lake to the North and Coney Mountain to the South, as well as the surrounding mountains and some of the High Peaks off in the distance.

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.

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.
