Trail is mostly rock all the way to the top. If you just starting out hiking this will give you a good workout. If hiking in fall watch for ice along the trail, the wide trail takes you to the ridge of the West Mountain Range. You then turn right and head North to the summit. Shortly before reaching the summit, you will see the old fire observer's cabin. The fire tower is open, but good views can be had without climbing it. The Great Sacandaga Lake is the body of water to the South.
From Saratoga, take Rte 9N going north.
When you reach the village of Lake Luzerne, turn left at first light onto East River Drive.
Turn left onto Bridge Street. Turn right onto Stony Creek Rd (CR1).
After 3 miles, turn left onto Hadley Hill Rd. Continue for 4 miles. Turn right onto Tower Rd (gravel road). The parking area is on the left after 1.5 miles
