Cheney Mountain Trail

How to get there

From the intersection of Route 22/9N and county Route 54 (Pelfershire Road) just north of Port Henry, follow county Route 54 for just under 2 miles to the trailhead on the left.  

Trail Description

This is a short hike but it's a favorite. Consider combining it with some other short hikes in the region, like Coon Mountain and /or Belfry Mountain. 

This hike crosses a field before entering the forest on an old woods road. Follow this road as it moderately but steadily climbs to high ground. Soon there will be a spur trail to an excellent view that's well worth checking out. The summit is not much farther and it's wooded, but if you follow the trail just beyond the summit you have two great views — one of the High Peaks with the tailings piles of the old mine in the foreground, and the other of the Champlain Bridge and Vermont.
