This event is no longer on sale.

Thursday September 21

1:30 PM  –  3:30 PM

Coney Mountain rises between the villages of Tupper Lake and Long Lake on the border between Franklin and Hamilton Counties. The trail is a 1.1 walk to the summit and passes through beautiful woods, including a stand of old-growth sugar maples. The 360 degree view from the open, rocky summit is stunning. We will scan the skies for migrating hawks, falcons, eagles, monarch butterflies, and dragonflies. The western lake district of the Adirondacks spreads grandly in one direction, while to the East, weather permitting, we'll gaze toward the High Peaks. Elevation gain is a little more than 523 feet. Altitude at the summit is 2267 feet.

Registration is required for this walk. 

Directions: The trailhead is located on NY 30, just north of a snow plow turn around at the Hamilton/Franklin County line. There is a wide paved shoulder on NY 30 near the marked trailhead and small parking lot.
