Noonmark Mountain

Noonmark Mountain

Noonmark Mountain is a well-liked hiking location. The 3,556-foot summit gives breathtaking views of the peaks and valleys nearby.

Noonmark Mountain's summit walk is a strenuous, yet rewarding experience. The trail starts with a gradual elevation through a forested region and is accessible from Route 73, near the town of Keene Valley. You'll come across a number of steep portions with rocky terrain and switchbacks on this hiking route.

The terrain gets steeper and rougher with rock scrambles and steep inclines as you get closer to the summit. The peak, however, rewards the effort with stunning vistas of the High Peaks, including Giant Mountain, Dix Mountain, and the Great Range.

The summit has a rocky outcropping that offers expansive views in all directions. You can see as far as Vermont's Green Mountains and Lake Champlain on a clear day.

Noonmark Mountain's round-trip trek to the top is around 4.8 miles round trip and usually takes 4-6 hours to complete depending on your groups pace and the weather conditions.

Reserve Spot

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.
