The 3156 foot Hopkins Mountain is located in Giant Mountain Wilderness in Essex County of the state of New York.   Hopkins Mountain is located near Keene Valley. There is a nice view from the summit. The most direct route to the mountain is from the Beede Farm development, however one would need to walk through the development from the lower Beede Lane (creating a long, confusing hike). The best way to hike to Hopkins is from NY 73 along the Mossy Cascade Trail.

Directions:  The trailhead to Hopkins Mountain is very low profile and non descript. If you are driving into Keene Valley on NY 73 from the I-87 Northway look on the right just south of the steel bridge over the Ausable River. As for orienting as to where that bridge is, it is 0.4 miles north of the Ausable Club and 2 miles south of the sign to Johns Brook Valley in the village of Keene Valley.

There is a small green sign with the white lettering “Hopkins and Giant via Mossy Cascade” right off NY 73. There is no parking area so pull off the road and park on the shoulder.
