Bobcat Trail Snowshoe

The easy trail trail goes through a meadow, winds through mixed forest, and ends at another meadow. It joins the Beaver Flow Trail at its northern trailhead.

Getting there

This trail can be approached from either end. The north end starts on Walker Road about 1.4 miles west of Route 22 in Whallonsburg or about 1 mile east of the junction with Sayre Road. The trailhead is on the south side of the road.

Ticonderoga Bicentennial Park

Bicentennial Park offers picnic areas, riverfront trails, ball fields, lighted walking paths, tennis courts, and a small boat launch. Scenic boat cruises, seasonal accommodations, campsites, numerous beaches, and picnic areas abound. In winter the park is a favorite place for lighted cross country skiing, skating, snowshoeing, and tobogganing.

Owl Head Lookout

Owl Head Lookout is a true hidden gem, and should not be overlooked! In any season, but especially in fall, the views of the sweeping forest will absolutely take your breath away. 

Getting there

From the intersection of Route 9 and Route 9N in Elizabethtown, the trailhead is less than 5 miles away. Follow Route 9N toward Keene for 4.5 miles to a parking lot on the left.

Hurricane Mountain

This is a wonderful open peak with a fire tower that is being restored and can now be climbed, even though the tower is not needed for some of the best views in the High Peaks. There are three separate approaches to this peak. Hurricane Mountain is 3,678 feet.


From Route 9N

Giant Mountain

Giant is a shortened name for the peak that was originally called Giant of the Valley, and that's exactly what it is — a huge landmass that towers over Keene Valley and the surrounding lowlands. The parking areas for Giant Mountain often fill quickly, especially in the summer, and it is illegal to park along Route 73. Consider choosing a less popular, and less crowded, trail to avoid the risk of getting a ticket. Or just the approach from the north, which typically sees less traffic.

Blueberry Cobbles

This aptly-named mountain is the first summit on the East Trail to Rocky Peak and Giant at 1.9 miles from Rt. 9.

How to get there

Head south on Route 9 from Elizabethtown. Continue for 5.6 miles to the trailhead on the left, beyond the village of New Russia.

Berries in season? The best ones are beyond the first lookout (1.9 miles) on the summit ledges at 2.2 miles.
