Wright Peak is the 16th highest mountain in the Adirondack Park with an elevation of 4,580 ft.

The round-trip length of the Wright Peak hike is 7 miles and it will take experienced hikers approximately 5-7 hours to complete. 

Wright Peak is part of the MacIntyre Range and is located in North Hudson, New York.  Wright Peak is known as the windiest peak in the whole park!

This mountain can be hiked from the Adirondack Loj and then up the Van Hovenberg trail. 

Fun fact, at the summit of Wright Peak, remnants of a U.S. B-47 bomber are scattered from a crash in 1962.  A bronze plaque marks the area on a rock just north of the summit.
