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

Enjoy hiking in the Tupper Lake Region of the Adirondacks by climbing the following three mountains:

  • Mount Arab
    A fire tower awaits those who make the moderately steep climb up this mountain.
    Distance, one way: 1 mile | Elevation: 2545 feet | Ascent: 764 feet
  • Coney Mountain
    Enjoy superior views with little effort from Coney's rocky 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.
