Ampersand Mountain

Harrietstown, NY


Ampersand Mountain is a popular hike in the Adirondacks, and is part of the Saranac Lake 6ers challenge.

From the intersection of Routes 30 and 3 in Tupper Lake, continue approximately 7 miles east toward Saranac Lake and you'll reach the Ampersand Trailhead. Parking is on the left. The trailhead is located directly across the road.

Though it is a relatively short hike with a total round-trip distance of 5.4 miles, Ampersand has some steep and slippery spots.

Hikers begin with a slow, increasing incline that leads to the ruins of a fire observers cabin on the right. The climb then becomes much steeper, and eventually reaches a stone staircase. After the staircase, is a boulder field, just beyond which is the summit.

The trail usually takes between 2 and 3 hours to summit, depending on fitness and ability level.
