Iroquois Peak

Iroquois Peak

One of the highest of the 46ers, Iroquois is an easy peak to bag if you head out to climb Algonquin, since the most popular route up Iroquois requires climbing Algonquin to get there. While that makes the hike a longer one, it’s well worth it for the views from both peaks, and is of course a must if you’re looking to score your 46.

Trail Stats

Distance: 10.2 miles round-trip

Elevation: 4,840 ft

Ascent: 2,661 ft

Follow the route to Algonquin. Then, after summiting Algonquin, you will follow the herd path straight ahead to Boundary and Iroquois. Following the herd path, the trail quickly and steeply climbs to the top of Boundary Peak in .2 miles. From there the trail descends over open rock and then climbs steeply to the top of Iroquois, a short half mile from the top of Boundary. From there, you’ll retrace your steps back over Boundary and Algonquin to return.

Directions to Adirondack Loj

From Lake Placid, take route 73 towards Keene, turning right onto Adirondack Loj Road, which you will follow to the end. There will be a tollbooth at the entrance where you will have to pay a $10 parking fee.

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.

Nye Mountain
Nye Mountain

One of the most accessible “trail-less” peaks, Nye is a fairly easy climb, however, does not boast even a meager view from the top. Most people hike Nye and Street together. Since both Street and Nye have poor views and unmaintained trails, they tend to be quieter options than many of the other hikes that begin at Adirondack Loj, and are a good bet if you’re looking to run into fewer people during the busy season.
