“A Great Day Hike”
Review of Black Mountain

Black Mountain
Reviewed 7 July 2018

Completed a 6.5 mile loop up to Black Mountain Summit and then back down around the Ponds areas. Steep rocky ascent close to the top of the summit and early on back down. A walking/hike stick or two is recommended for those middle aged and older. A great hike with wonderful views of Lake George from the summit. Recommended for those in shape and who like to hike.

This mountain has a lower and upper trail. The entrance by Hulett's is about half way up. The terrain is walkable but steep. Pack plenty of water and your camera.

There are a couple of very interesting hikes based in Whitehall and on the flanks of Black Mountain, sometimes called the Saddles.

Wonderful views, and the trails are moderate.

Maps are available free at a kiosk in Whitehall.

A moderately challenging hike to the tallest summit in the Southern Adirondacks. Starting at Pike Brook parking area, the summit is a straight shot up the red trail. Typical rocky and rooted terrain. Some steep ascents and some long inclines lead to one of the greatest views in the Southern Adirondacks. Descending down the yellow and blue trails the trail is narrow, rutted dirt path. Once you get about a mile down this way, the trail markers are not always as easy to spot, down by the ponds there is a lean-to and outhouse. Garmin tracked this hike at 7.3 miles. We had a 10 year old and a 67 year old in our group. We had to sit and rest a couple of times. All roads and the parking lot are sports car friendly. The town of Whitehall has a Stewart's on 4 east which is bathroom break and refreshment friendly. This is about a 4 hr hike if you don't rush.
