Hike Snake Mountain

4.9 Miles Round Trip - 1030 ft gain - Loop Trail

2514 Mountain Road - Search Nearby - Added by The Outbound Collective

Gorgeous views of Lake Champlain Valley and the Adirondacks from the summit of this hike.

The trail to the top of Snake Mountain is 4.9 miles, and is most commonly hiked from June through October. The trail allows dogs, but bring a leash!

The top of the mountain features an amazing lookout with many nice places to eat a snack or lunch. The route to the summit of this hike is fairly straightforward - but the eastern portion of the loop is challenging to follow. It is highly recommended to bring a map with you, or simply go down the same way you came up. On your way down, if you choose to hike this as a loop, head to the trail more to the right - called the Yellow Trail. You will encounter less switchbacks and you will go past a tranquil pond.
