Climb Baxter Mountain

Rate this Adventure 2.4 miles 770 ft gain  - Out-and-Back Trail

Added by The Outbound Collective

Amazing views of the Adirondack high peaks and surrounding mountains.

Mostly a moderate, 1.2 mile hike to the first summit. The path begins at a moderate grade as it passes under a power line, then there's a continuous climb over switchbacks for 0.8 mile, where the Beede Farm Trail comes in on the left. Go straight and work your way up a few steep steps to the first open rock. This first lookout is not the summit — that's a bit farther along the ridge.
