This short round trip trail of only 3 miles follows red trail markers from the parking lot to the top with amazing views of the southern Adirondacks. You will find an old ranger station at the top as well as a restored fire tower. You will also have great views on the way up. Bring a camera. This is a great family hike.
Located near the town of Hadley, NY the trailhead is about 1.5 miles down Tower Road which branches off from Hadley Hill Road from the town of Hadley.
At 2,653 feet you are at the summit of Hadley Mountain. You will have sweeping views in 360 degrees including Spruce Mountain and the Great Sacandaga Lake. Make sure to read the sign about the old fire tower. When you are done just head back down the same way you came up.
