Formally known as Giant of the Valley, this is the 12th highest Adirondack peak. Waterfalls and excellent views along the way.
Distance: 8.0 miles
Elevation Gain: 3100 feet
Our Time: 6.5 hours
Trailhead Location: Roaring Brook Trailhead, 16 Roaring Brook Trail, Keene Valley, NY 12943
Adventurer Insight: Less than 1/4 mile round trip to the base of Roaring Brook Falls. Only few steps out of the way to see the top of the falls on the way up Giant. View from the summit is one of my personal Adirondack favorites so far.
