Derek and I hiked this November 21, 2010. Noonmark is one of the higher mountains in the Adirondacks and is part of the Adirondack 100-highets peaks. The views from its summit are outstanding! a

We parked at the Saint Huberts lot, then walked up to the trail head from there.

This 3.94 mile, round trip, hike is over moderate to steep terrain. From the parking lot we walked up the dirt road for around 0.25 miles to the register at the trail head for Noonmark Mountain.

The trail starts on a private driveway for 0.2 mi. before the foot trail bears right just before a large barn at the end of the driveway. From this point the trail is moderate as it follows an old jeep road. At a bit over 0.5 miles from the trail head you will come to the intersection for Noonmark Mountain on the right. From here the trail climbs much more aggressively through a mixed forest. As you ascend, the gets more demanding and I found more rock slab under foot. The final approach to the summit is quite steep over open rock, and the views begin to show.

The open rock summit gives you 360 degree view of the High Peaks Region.

Elevation gain 2195'
