After my first full weekend hiking with the KOAC decided to do a couple of smaller trails around the Lake Placid area as a kind of keep moving or seize up exercise.
1. Cobble HillLake Placid 9’er
Location: Lake Placid, NY
Elevation: 2,332 feet
Distance: 2.2 miles round-trip
Trailhead: From the intersection of Route 73 and Route 86 in Lake Placid, follow Route 86 toward the center of town. Take a right at the town hall onto Mirror Lake Drive. Continue through the four-way stop and follow Mirror Lake Drive past Northwood Road to the entrance to Northwood School. There is a trailhead parking area 200 yards up this entrance road on the left. One can also park on main street, enjoy a stroll around Mirror Lake, and pick up the trailhead on foot with ease.
