One of my favorite hikes near Old Forge. I'd recommend taking the blue trail to the top, and the yellow trail down. Perfect place to have lunch at the top!

This mountain is very convenient to the town of inlet. The views are great. It has some very steep parts to it at the end. The easier version of the trail is very long. Not really good for small children.

Great hike in the ADK. Gives you a good workout with a challenge. Take hike every year with children, started when they were 5yrs. But they complete every time. Great family fun and memories made.

We took the back way up, using the trail from Uncas Rd. It was nice, a very gradual grade with no super strenuous parts. The view on the top is beautiful.

At about five miles round-trip, it is the perfect 2-3 hour hike. It offers enough of a challenge to work up a light sweat so you feel like you've earned the beautiful views from the top.

If you have a couple hours, this is worth the hike. If you take the route from Route 28, it's a really fun hike. It gets very muddy after it rains so I recommend wearing boots and your water-proof clothes. It gets very steep and...More

No. Would not suggest Black Bear and stroller. Could you put the kid in a front carry sack?
