Lower Wolf Jaw Mountain is the 30th-highest of New York's High Peaks, with an elevation of 4,175 ft.
This hike is 8.7 miles and will take around 8 hours to complete.
Lower Wolf Jaw is usually hiked with Upper Wolf Jaw and can be hiked from the Ausable Club. There is a parking area on Ausable Road and the trail begins at the gatehouse on the Ausable Club property. You will have to walk past a tennis court to get to the trail head. There is a sign for the W.A. White Trail that leads up the Wolf Jaws. Just before the summit the trail gets very steep, so be careful! The summit is mostly tree covered, but there are a few lookouts where you can see views of other peaks.
Even though the summit isn't the most gorgeous in the world, this is a fun trip because the hike up the mountain is very enjoyable. It's sort of like a road trip...getting there is the best part!
