Dial Mountain is the 41st-highest of the Adirondack High Peaks, with an elevation of 4,020 ft.
The round-trip hike is 10 miles long and will take approximately 9 hours to complete. It is not recommended for children or beginners.
Dial is often climbed in combination with Nippletop Mountain, which adds an extra 3.7 miles. Colvin and Blake can also be hiked in the same trip as Dial and Nippletop.
Most people approach Dial Mountain from the St. Huberts Trailhead.
