Nippletop Mountain

North Hudson, NY 12855


Nippletop Mountain is the 13th highest mountain in New York State with an elevation of 4,620 ft.

The 12.6 mile will take about 10 hours round trip. 

Nippletop Mountain is in the northeastern part of the Colvin Range and is known to be a little wet when hiking, so dress accordingly.  

When hiking this mountain use the St. Huberts Trailhead. This trip will take you down a beautiful Lake Road towards lower Ausable Lake and then climb to the top of two 4,000 foot peaks. At the top of Nippletop, you will have amazing views of the Great Range.   

Nippletop Mountain is a more difficult hike, so if you're an experienced hiker, this mountain will be a great experience for you.

Note: From May 1 to October 31, a free parking reservation is required for single-day and overnight access to the parking lot, trailheads, and trails located on the privately owned Adirondack Mountain Reserve. Visit the official website to book your reservation:
