Description [Suggest Changes]

This trail starts at the Adirondack Loj and leads to the summit of Algonquin Peak. Along this route, intersecting trails lead to Iroquois and Wright Peaks as well. This route starts in the forest, crossing a few streams as the terrain steepens. Just below the summit, the trees give way to delicate plant life and rock.
