There are ways to go to the summit, there is an easy way and a hard way. We decided to take the hard way. For most of the way it really wasn't hard, but we were surprised to come to a spot where you hard to hold onto a rope and pull yourself up a steep piece of rock. It wasn't a big deal for my husband, but I thought it was scary, not really that hard, just scary. The views at the summit are so worth it, very beautiful. We took the easy back down the mountain, which was a little longer and for a little bit, you walk along side a pond.

The hike to the top of Cobble Hill was enjoyable through the woods, even though it was very muddy. I came upon a pretty pond on the way. There are two ways to get to the top. The shorter way is steeper and I heard you had to climb some rocks. I wasn't interested in doing that with tennis shoes and because it was so muddy, but others did including a couple with a little girl. I chose to go the longer and easier way which goes by the pond. The last part of the climb is kinda steep but not bad. The views from the top are beautiful.
It was a little hard to find the trail of the directions that were given, but Alltrails helped me. You actually enter into Northwoods School and drive to the very back. Across the driveway, you will see a little sign for the trailhead. Nice hike to do in about an hour.

We are avid high peaks hikers... but our kids... not so much! This is a great little jaunt for those who always ask "how much longer" and well worth the views!

cobble hill was one of the Easy hiking trails in Lake placid. We went in fall and it was a beautiful walk up to the summit. There was lake as well on the way. There are two ways one is fairly flat but other is little steep. if you are going with kids or old children, please take the gentle one.

The guide book said the climb up Cobble Hill would take 30 to 45 minutes. Although it took considerably longer, the view from the top was absolutely worth the effort.
