Noonmark Mtn.

While not a hike peak, Noonmark Mt. comes in at an elevation of 3556ft. We have hiked this mountain twice; once in the fall of 2006 and then again on August 9, 2009 (just last Sunday). The hike is amazing, and if you ever get a chance it is a must. The view from the top is gorgeous and one can see the entire Great Range and beyond.

The first time we hiked this we took the Stimson Trail from the Ausable Club Road. This trail is very steep, but has amazing views along the way.

This past trip, we decided to hike Noonmark from the South East via the Dix Mt. trail that starts on Route 73 and the Felix-Adler Trail. This trail is longer, but less steep than the trail from the north, and much less crowded. Round-trip was about 6.8 miles. No views this time, but fun none the less. It definitely gave us the itch to get back to the high peaks!
