Crane Pond Parking Area
Pharaoh Mountain Day Hike
Up and back day hike. Approx 2,500 feet of vertical climb. From Crane Pond up and back approx 5.2 miles. Seasonally the service road from Crane Pond parking area is closed. If so it will add 3.5 miles of relatively flat hiking.
A great Adirondack fall hike near Schroon Lake, NewYork, especially for those contemplating starting the 46 high peaks. This is comparable to hiking Cascade and Porter mountains. There is a beautiful panoramic view from the summit on clear days.
It has the added benefit of giving us the chance to visit Crane Pond on the way in.
This outing brings the option of spending the night at the Arrowwood Lodge with dinner and breakfast for an additional fee.
