Noonmark Mountain

Now that the semester is over, I have free time again! Time to do some more hiking. Saturday Christine and I went up to the high peaks area to hike Noonmark Mountain, a smaller mountain near some of the 46. It is also part of the 100-highest peaks in the Adirondacks.

We parked at the lot for Giant & Rocky Peak since the AMR lot was full. We just had to cross the road and walk over to the trailhead for Noonmark.

The trail wasn’t too tough until we got closer to the top. There were rocks to scramble! It was pretty steep.

And there were views for days.

And we weren’t even at the summit yet!

A few ladders too, which reminded me of hiking Blake and Crane.

At the summit we relaxed for a bit and ate our lunches. It was nice not to be rushed because it was such a short hike. Usually we get worried about running out of daylight.

There were awesome views of the Great Range from up here.

This was the 7th mountain that Christine and I have hiked together (five of them were high peaks), and only our third summit picture! I have a feeling there will be more to come this summer!
