First things first: parking. Adirondack Loj parking lot fills up quickly on warm, sunny weekends so arrive early for parking! The trail was relatively well worn and easy to follow for being unmarked. As with any other High Peaks, be prepared for a steady climb to the summit. Nye’s summit is a short walk from the junction between the two mountains, Street was a bit further away.
