We decided on Black as a nice break from the challenges of the High Peaks. Just on the other side of Lake George, we hit the trail at just after 9am. After our “hot” trek up Esther and Whiteface, the cool 40 degree weather was a nice change.
Some artwork in nature and a sign just as we reached the summit that told of someone who had been buried there. The sign was too worn to read who or why…
We reached the summit at about 10:15 am
Just on the loop trail down from the summit is a great view of Black Mountain ponds. You have to veer off the trail a little bit, but its worth it!
