Failure to prep, even for a short hike, can take you off the beaten path. This was the case for our climb of Kane Mountain and Fire Tower, located in Shaker Mountain Wild Forest area of Adirondack Park in New York.

I think we may have spent just as long trying to find the trail as we did getting to the summit once we found it!

Not to worry though! Had we looked at the maps before heading out, we would have easily found the new trail head and the recently, beautifully redone TWO trails up the mountain. So – this post and our video are all about the old trail from Schoolhouse Road, which apparently is being phased out. We did find the ‘official’ trail head after the hike and get some photos and location data for you, though!

A few details, stats, and photos, then on to the VIDEO!
