Little Haystack Mtn




Not to be confused with the High Peak Mt. Haystack! This one is in Ray Brook and offers a friendlier climb.

The trailhead for Haystack and McKenzie mountain is on the right, off Route 86 about 5 miles west of Lake Placid

A pleasant walk in the woods until you cross an old man made dam. From here the trail begins a stead uphill climb until you get closer to the mountain where it becomes steep. Once you get towards the top of the shute the trail leads to an open rock face and ledge with some views. From the south facing summit there are 180 degree views of Whiteface, the High Peaks, and the Saranac Lake chain.

Distance: 6.6 miles RT (10.6 km)
Ascent: 1302 (397 m)
Elevation: 2864 (873 m)

A nice hike, with Derek.
