We will hike from the Silver Lake parking lot up past the Falls of Lana to the Rattlesnake Cliffs which offer a great view of Lake Dunmore, Silver Lake and the Adirondacks during a clear day. The elevation gain is about 900 feet. Pack a snack to eat at the top and we’ll plan to grab a meal in Brandon afterwards.
I am cross-posting this with another MeetUp group.
