Nye Mountain is the 45th-highest of New York's High Peaks, with an elevation of 3,895 ft.

This hike is 7.5 miles long and will take approximately 8 hours to complete. 

Nye Mountain is located in North Elba, New York and named after William B. Nye. Nye was an Adirondack Mountain guide

The route to Nye Mountain goes right from the Indian Pass trail about .1 miles beyond the register box. The junction is marked with a sign for Old Nye Ski Trail and Mt. Jo via Rock Garden Trail. Follow this for 250 yards and you will come to another junction.  Continue straight ahead and follow the remains of the Old Nye Ski Trail, due west and down to Indian Pass Brook. Cross the brook and pick up the new herd path on the other side.  From this point, you will shadow the small brook that comes down the plateau between Street and Nye Mountains. 

You will come to an intersection on the plateau between Street and Nye and there will be a tree marked S for Street and N for Nye.  Head to the right for Nye and after a few hundred yards, you will have reached the summit.
