Description: A relatively short, steep climb to the summit yields magnificent views in nearly all directions. McKenzie and the High Peaks can be seen to the south. Directly below is a stunning expanse of lakes and ponds within the St. Regis Canoe Area. The summit also has an abandoned fire tower which is being restored in the Summer/Fall of 2015. When complete an unobstructed 360 degree view will be possible from the tower. For more information visit
