Hiking in Adirondack Park
High Peaks Wilderness
Saranac Lake 6er
The 3353 foot summit of Ampersand Mountain features a bare summit with spectacular views. The trail begins on the south side of NY 3, about 14 miles east of Tupper Lake. A DEC sign marks the beginning of the trail which travels gradually through the forest for about a mile and then climbs sharply. The ascent to the top is about 1800 feet of elevation gain in 2.7 miles of hiking.
Once you break out on the bare summit you will be awarded with spectacular 360 degree views. Although there are higher mountains, Ampersand Mountain gives hikers a chance to see much of the surrounding area. Ampersand Mountain is part of the Saranac Lake 6er Challenge.
