Treadway Mountain is a moderate climb with views of the Adirondack High Peaks and located by gorgeous Putnam Pond Campground, a popular and remote campground in Ticonderoga NY.
Mount Defiance, an 853 foot hill is located in “Ti,” and not only has a breathtaking view of Lake Champlain and Fort Ticonderoga, but it bears an amazing history. During the Revolutionary War, in the Battle of Ticonderoga, the British army succeeded in stationing canons on top Mount Defiance, which overlooked Fort Ticonderoga and Fort Independence, forcing the Americans to abandon the forts. The current walking road is the road British General Burgoyne’s army constructed in 1777.

Cook Mountain is a 200 acre-preserve providing great views of Lake George, the Champlain Valley, and Vermont’s Green Mountains. The trail is a little over a mile to the summit and is a short, steep climb. Besides hiking trails, this 200-acre conservancy has two beaver ponds, historic grave sites, and much wildlife. A moderately difficult ascent taking about 45 minutes, accessed from Baldwin Road.

Belfry Mountain is the easiest Fire Tower Challenge hike at just 0.3 miles. It’s located in the  town of Moriah, NY just above an abandoned mining area.  Views from the summit include Lake Champlain, Green Mountains, Hurricane and Whiteface Mountain and Rocky and Giant to the southwest as well as the Great Range.

Ticonderoga NY is the perfect destination for those looking to experience the breathtaking Adirondack Mountains or the pristine lakes of upstate NY!

Buck is a moderate hike of three miles (one way), with a few challenging spots. Be sure to follow the yellow markers! Be especially careful not to take a right-hand turn early in the hike. Check out both Cat Mountain and Tongue Mountain for a more challenging hike if you prefer.

PROSPECT MOUNTAIN HIKING - Prospect Mountain is one of the most popular hikes in the Lake George Region, and is a 3-mile round-trip hike.
Because its steep grade makes it quite difficult in spots, this hike is not recommended for young children.
