    Giant Mt is the 12th highest peak in the state at 4627'. We will utilize the Ridge trail from Rte 73. This is a steep 3 mile trail (one way) to the summit with 3050' elevation gain. Excellent  high peak views along the way and from the summit. This is a strenuous hike and you must be doing regular aerobic exercise and be in excellent physical condition to participate. Dress for the weather in non cotton clothes and wear sturdy hiking boots. Bring lunch, water, snacks, and carpool cash. No dogs please. We can stop in Schroon Lake for food after for those interested. All persons participating should read and be aware of Hiking Mates Policies, see Pages tab for details. Rain postpones the outing. My cell[masked] if needed.
