About Snowy Mountain:

Snowy Mountain is the largest mountain in the Southern Adirondacks. Snowy is located on the west coast of Indian lake. This is mostly a sport climbing destination however there is one trad route and one route that requires a 4 inch cam to protect the start.
Nearest town or city:
Directions: Park at the well marked pull off for Snowy Mountain and follow the trail to just below the summit. There is a cairn at this point. Turn left off the trail. There is a very faint trail leading along the side of the mountain to the cliff. The approach involves traversing thin grassy ledges across the face to the cliffs. The trail to the summit is north facing and holds snow and ice well into the spring. This can become a very dangerous accent when covered in snow and ice.
