Tupper Lake Triad

The Tupper Lake Triad

Do you dream of being a 46er but don't know where to start? Are you a seasoned hiker and looking for a fun way to spike your children's enthusiasm for mountain climbing? Are you simply looking for a fun challenge that won't take you weeks -- or years -- to complete? The Tupper Lake Triad has what you need!

A year-round Adirondack hiking challenge

In 2015, a new hiking challenge called the Tupper Lake Triad was launched in the Tupper Lake region of the Adirondacks. The three family-friendly mountains boast outstanding views of the surrounding mountains and lakes from their summits, which are reached via well-maintained and well-marked state Department of Environmental Conservation trails. After successfully hiking all three peaks, register on the official Triad roster and receive a patch -- and bragging rights, of course.

Meet the peaks

Earn an Adirondack hiking challenge patch by climbing the following three mountains, each of which is within a short drive of Tupper Lake:

  • Mount Arab
    A fire tower awaits those who make the moderately steep climb up this mountain. Mount Arab also counts as one of the Adirondack fire tower hiking challenge peaks.
    Distance, one way: 1 mile | Elevation: 2545 feet | Ascent: 764 feet
     
  • Coney Mountain 
    Enjoy superior views with little effort from Coney's rocky summit. Be sure to return in summer to enjoy some of the wild blueberries that dominate the open summit.
    Distance, one way: 1.1 miles | Elevation: 2280 feet | Ascent: 548 feet
     
  • Goodman Mountain 
    This mountain, named after civil rights activist Andrew Goodman, has it all: History, wheelchair accessibility for the first quarter mile, and great views from the summit.
    Distance, one way: 1.7 miles | Elevation: 2178 feet | Ascent: 581 feet

How to register

There are two different patches, summer and winter, that you can receive for completing the Tupper Lake Triad.

  • Summer Triad: Hike all three peaks between March 21 and Dec. 19 to receive the summer hiking patch.
  • Winter Triad: Hike all three peaks between Dec. 20 and March 20 to receive the winter hiking patch.

Once completed, download the Tupper Lake Triad registration form and mail it with your $5 registration fee to: TL Triad, 121 Park Street, Tupper Lake, NY 12986.

Please make checks payable to ROOST (Regional Office of Sustainable Tourism)
