Description

Certainly not the most difficult trail in the Adirondacks but there are some nice scrambles and steep spots that make it some fun. After you turn on to the actual Giant Mountain Trail, in about a mile you get some beautiful view points going up some open rock faces.

Would recommend sunscreen on a sunny day as you pop in in out of the woods on those nice open rockfaces with the beautiful views.
