Gray Peak-Adirondack Loj

  Roundtrip Distance 16 miles
Elevation Gain 2,645 ft.
This peak is trailless, meaning a portion or all of the route up the mountain is via an unmarked trail. For this particular mountain, the typical route is known as a ''herd path'' which is not much more than a worn, but unmarked trail. Some of the herd paths are easy to follow, others are not. In many instances the hiker will travel down a false herd path and eventually have to correct his/her course
    via backtracking. For these particular mountains, it is imperative that the hiker carry a compass (and know how to use it) and topographic map.
Says Kevin Corcoran

New York is a good place for outdoors people. You can't
spend all your time indoors you need to get out once in a while and Gray Peak-Adirondack Loj in Essex County, New York is a good choice. Pretty far from Plattsburgh you find Gray Peak-Adirondack Loj but hiking along this trail is very enjoyable.
There are many wonderful hiking trails in the Adirondack Mountains where wonderful nature is waiting for you. If you came for an overnight stay Adirondak Loj is a magnificent place to camp. You'll meet a lot of
 
people from Lake Placid here, and do go to Marcy Dam while you're here. There are some nice whitewater spots on John's Brook, and why not camp at Whispering Pines Campground since you're here at Gray Peak-Adirondack Loj. MacIntyre Brook is a fine local stream; if you come at the right time of year, Ausable River - West Branch offers some great whitewater.
