Treadway Mountain Snowshoe Hike
Sat, Jan 05 • 9:00 AM

Join me for my first-ever snowshoe hike up Treadway Mountain in the eastern Adirondacks! I've climbed this scenic gem in the spring and fall, but never in the winter. This is a scenic gem of a mountain, with pine forests and an open summit with outstanding views of Pharaoh Lake. Most of the slopes are moderate in grade as I recall, with only a few ledges here and there.

In the summer, this is a 3.8-mile hike from the Putnam Pond Campground, but the winter version may be a bit longer depending on where the plowing ends. On the other hand, crossing the frozen surface of Putnam Pond would be a scenic shortcut.

This will be an excellent way to kick off 2019, so come and join A.W.E.!

Hiking Distance: The summer hiking distance is 3.8 miles one-way, but the winter version will likely be a bit longer depending on where the plowing ends. On the other hand, crossing the frozen surface of Putnam Pond could be a bit of a shortcut. There is a 920-foot vertical ascent up the mountain.
