Hurricane Mountain Primitive Area
Hurricane Mountain, outside the Village of Keene, is a popular hike along the three trails that take hikers to the summit. It can also be good for birding, and a variety of breeding birds call the area home. Watch and listen for kinglets, vireos, creepers, and an array of warblers such as black-throated blue, black-throated green, and blackburnian.
The spruce fir forests near the summit may also harbor boreal chickadee and Bicknell’s thrush, two Adirondack specialties that are worth the long hike.
See our page on hiking Hurricane Mountain for directions to the three different trailheads.
