Rocky Mountain

Rocky Mountain

A shorter and easier (though no less steep) hike than its neighbor, Black Bear Mountain, Rocky Mountain is a great hike for families and hikers with dogs. Even though it’s a quick hike, you still get a good view from the top of Fourth Lake, as well as nearby Inlet and Eagle Bay. You might even be able to point your lodging out to the kids!

Trail Stats

Distance: 1-mile round-trip

Elevation: 2,225 ft

Ascent: 448 ft

Rocky Mountain is a quick hike, but that doesn’t necessarily make it easy! It climbs up at a decently steep incline for a half-mile to the summit. The trail is well marked and frequently climbed – it can get busy in the summertime, so we recommend an early start. When you reach the summit, you’ll have an impressive view of Inlet and Fourth Lake from the mountain’s (unsurprisingly) rocky summit. This is a great hike if you’re looking to introduce your kids to their first mountain climb, or just a quick morning jaunt!

Trailhead

Headed from Inlet to Eagle Bay, drive on route 28 for 0.8 miles until you see the trailhead for Black Bear Mountain and Rocky Mountain on your right.

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.
