I thought that I would throw this out here since I know some of you are more experienced with the ADK's and NY than myself.
My sister is working at the Miner Agricultural Research Institute this summer and fall which is in Chazy, NY. She has shown some interest in doing a few weekend trips with me while she is working there this year, the first one looking like it may be this weekend.
I was curious if anyone who has more experience with this area, may have some suggestions on places which we could go for a weekend hike and camp out in the nearby area.
I'm looking for something which would allow us to camp on a Friday night with a short hike in from the road, and then on a Saturday night after a 8 mile or less hike. We would prefer to avoid any actual camp grounds and just do a stealth hang near a stream or other water source randomly in the woods.
I have done some research but I'm having issues finding details about trails with maps, etc.
Some of my research has pointed me towards 'Mt Lyon'. It looks like it could be a nice hike with a nice fire tower. However I haven't been able to find a good trail map showing me where it starts, if there are water sources nearby, etc.
Please let me know if you have any suggestions of cool spots near by.
