17.1 miles, Full day
On this hike you will climb 3 more ADK 46er peaks. These peaks do not have maintained trails to their summits so you will need to follow the gps track in this guide carefully to follow the herd paths. You will leave Upper Works and follow a trail to Bradley Pond before heading off on the herd paths. When you get up to the ridge you'll be at a 4-way intersection called "Times Square" from here you can choose which peaks to climb first but I would suggest going for the most distant, Couchsachraga first, so that if you need to come back it will be a shorter trip. Make sure you give yourself a full day by starting early for this hike.
Directions to trailhead:
Take exit 29 off of I-87 and follow Rte 2 west for 17 miles to an intersection with a sign for "National Lead". Turn right here and follow the road for 6.3 miles to turn onto Upper Works Trail. At 8.2 miles from the sign for National Lead you'll see a turn-off for parking for the Santanoni Range. There are no fees to park here.
