The Giant Mountain and Rocky Peak Ridge is a stunning 11-mile hike in the High Peaks, with a gorgeous crest descent and otherworldly panoramas. Other spectacular hikes include Mount Esther, Mount Marcy or any of the 46er Peaks. No matter the route you decide, you are in for a treat. Not only is the summit of Giant a true gem of the Adirondacks but the trails leading to the summit are also superb. The normal route up the Ridge Trail is long but not too steep.
