I recently hiked Kane Mountain in Fulton County, about an hour and 15 minutes outside of Albany. It’s a nice little hike if you are looking to get outside and hit the trails. It has a decent view for minimal effort!
Jenna, Steve and I opted for the shortest route up and then took the longer trail back to make a nice loop.
There is a nice view from the top of the fire tower. I’d love to come up here for a sunset hike sometime. There is no real view from the summit unless you climb the tower.
There is a little cabin at the top that has been boarded up, but it seems people still go inside (and leave their trash behind!–which is sad).
Near the trail head there is a little pond and a creek.
