It can be climbed from a trailhead on Endion Road off New York Route 30, just north of the hamlet of Long Lake. The trail provides a 3.2-mile (5.1 km) ascent with a gain of 1,200-foot (370 m); a side trail leads to Lake Eaton.The view from the summit includes 14-mile (23 km) Long Lake, part of the Raquette River. A 30-foot (9.1 m) Aermotor steel fire tower affords a 360-degree view of the central Adirondacks and Adirondack High Peaks region; nearer peaks include Kempshall Mountain on the shore of Long Lake, and the fire towers of Blue Mountain, Wakely Mountain, Snowy Mountain, Goodnow Mountain and Mount Arab. The trail to the summit passes the foundation of the old fire observer's cabin.
