South Dix is the thirty-seventh highest peak in the Adirondacks at 4060 feet.  This mountain is located in the Dix Mountain Wilderness and is one of the peaks within the rugged Dix Range.  The summit is open and offers scrambling across to the summit with good views. 

There is no maintained trail that leads to the summit of South Dix, however there is a well defined herd path.  The main route is to start from the Elk Lake trailhead, and hike to the Slide Brook Lean To, then follow the brook upstream to the Macomb Mountain slide then to the summit of Macomb.  From there follow the ridge down to the col between the two peaks and then up to summit.
