Noonmark via the Stimson Trail


DIRECTIONS to Ausable Club PA:

From the S/E: Take Rte 9 at Exit 30 on the Northway. Drive W to the start of State Rte 73, approximately 2 miles at an area known locally as Malfunction Junction. Continue on another 5.9 miles, passing Dix, Chapel Pond (Giant) TH's. After passing the lookout for Roaring Brook Falls, two parking lots will appear ahead on a CURVE. The First lot on the L is the Ausable lot. Turn into that. If you miss the turn, then turn into the one on the R and return. Parking is on the immediate LEFT. DO NOT continue to drive down the road looking for a closer parking area, as none exists.

Park your car and walk about 0.4 mile to the east edge of the golf course. On your L will be a road with a DEC register box. Sign in and proceed along the trail following yellow markers to the summit for a distance of 2.5 miles. Along the way are intermediate openings with spectacular views. You may want to bring traction devices in case there is any lingering snow / ice, but, with the warm weather the area's been enjoying, it may not be necessary. As a precaution, I'd pack them, anyway.

A good hike for Adirondack mud season; LOOP about 6 miles. Ascent 2175 ft.
