Mount Marcy:
This is the highest mountain in the Adirondack with 5344 feet. Marcy is located in the middle of the High Peaks Region. This mountain must be seen from a very close location to be able to admire its beauty. Three of the major accesses to the Adirondack region make possible a day hike to it. The shortest approach start at Heart Lake and follows in and out the Van Hoevenberg Trail. This is a 23,75 km hike that takes an average of 7˝ hours. The easiest way to shorten this distance is to camp at Marcy Dam. This will cut 7,3 km to the distance. Marcy Dam is a rustic camping area. It takes an hour of walk to get there from Heart Lake.

Giant Mountain:
This is one of the most popular summit of the Adirondack. The two main trails are at 1 km (Roaring Brook Trail) and at 3 km (Ridge Trail) South from St-Hubert. The Ridge Trail is the most spectacular one with from the middle of its height a long bare rock section with many viewpoints toward the West over the Dix Range, The Great Range, Mt. Marcy, Algonquin Peak and up to Cascade Mt.. This trail difficulty is similar to the one of Algonquin Peak from Heart Lake. They have similar length and high. The beginning of the Ridge Trail is very steep whereas the one of Algonquin Peak is very progressive. The second most popular approach is the Roaring Brook Trail that passes a side trail leading to a waterfall (Roaring Brook Falls) then follows a ridge with some viewpoints to the summit. It is possible to make a long loop using those two trails

Cascade Mountain:
One of the most popular summits of the Adirondacks with Algonquin Peak and Giant Mt.. It's the easiest hike among the 4,000 feet summit. Cascade Mt. has a 360 degree view from its large rocky top. There is a magnificent view to the North of the entire Lake Placid Valley. The entire hike is in a wooden trail except for the last ˝ km, which is on bare rock. This summit stands apart from the other High Peaks, so there is no view over those highest summits that are Mt. Marcy, Mt. Colden or Algonquin Peak.
