Description

The Hopkins Trail is a relatively steady and at times difficult climb through boulder laden creekbeds and forest.

While at times arduous, the Hopkins Trail rewards you with unique Adirondack Alpine Ecosystems along the way, and provides a less heavily trafficked trip up one of the most popular mountains in the Adirondacks.
