Grace Peak

Grace Peak

Recently renamed Grace Peak after Grace Hudowalski, the first woman to climb all 46 High Peaks, East Dix is most often summited alongside other peaks in the Dix Range, although it is possible to climb the peak from the east, via Lindsay Brook. One of the few peaks in the Dix Range with an unobstructed view from the summit, the view is well worth the long hike in.

Trail Stats:

Distance 10 miles round-trip (if done alone via Lindsay Brook, not described here)
Elevation 4,012 feet

Begin this hike by looking at our descriptions of South Dix and Macomb. This hike will begin after you’ve summited South Dix. To access East Dix from the summit South Dix, you will continue along from the summit of South Dix along a ridge, following a well-marked herd path for about an hour until you reach the summit of East Dix. Once there, you can take in the views before returning back towards South Dix.

Trailhead:

To reach the Elk Lake trailhead, you will follow Route 87 south from Keene. Turn off at exit 29, following Blue Ridge Road to the left towards Newcomb. After 4 miles, you will see Elk Lake Road turn off to the right. Follow this road just over 5 miles to parking on the right, just before the road ends at the lake ahead.

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.
