Giant Mountain is the 12th-highest of the 46 Adirondack High Peaks with an elevation of 4,627 ft.
The trail is 6 miles long and depending on experience and fitness level will take anywhere between 4 and 10 hours to hike, round-trip.
The primary trailhead is just past Chapel Pond on the opposite side of Route 73. The climb begins instantly from the trailhead, and doesn't stop for 3 miles until the summit. Interested hikers can continue over to Rocky Peak Ridge from a trail just below Giant's summit.
Giant Mountain is also called "Giant of the Valley" because it beautifully looks over Keene Valley and St. Hubert's to the west. There are huge rock slides on the mountain's western side and it is located far away from any other peaks, giving the mountain a gigantic look.
