Read on for some of our favorite hikes near Garnet Hill. Our Outdoor Center staff can help you plan the perfect hike based on your interests and ability level.
Peaked Mountain is a local favorite because it’s an agreeable and stable climb. The pond makes for a great stop before climbing the cone. Once you reach the top, you can take in the gorgeous views of the breathtaking Adirondacks.
The Balm of Gilead Mountain trail starts right by the Garnet Hill Outdoor Center and takes you through beautiful forests to a magnificent cliff that overlooks tranquil Thirteenth Lake.
This short but steep hike features a unique and exciting summit with caves as well as a grand view. As you approach the top, note that there are few steep sections of rocky terrain.
Unlike other Adirondack hikes, this one leads to one of the oldest family-owned and operated mines in the United States. Barton Mine is home to the New York state gemstone: garnet. You can hike from the Garnet Hill Outdoor Center to the mine using the Halfway Brook Trail and the Botheration Pond Trail. Mineworkers would take the Halfway Brook Trail from their living quarters to the mine every day. Before re-tracing their steps to the Garnet Mine, please call ahead for details regarding tours and hours of operation as this is a seasonal attraction.
