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 also harbor boreal chickadee and Bicknell’s thrush, two Adirondack specialties that are worth the long hike.
