Mt. Van Hoevenberg
Hike report and photos by Randy O.
While in the Adirondacks, Jim and I climbed to the summit of Mt. Van Hoevenberg from the north side. The day was sunny, warm, and dry, and the bugs were nowhere to be seen. There was a reasonable amount of water flowing in the creeks we crossed.
There were only a few cars in the lot when we started the hike, but as the day progressed, we saw lots of hikers enjoying this well-engineered trail.
We logged about four miles over five hours, with a one-hour lunch stop at the top. Overall, it was a great hike, as the photos show.
