Tupper Lake Hiking Triad

The Adirondacks is the home of hiking challenges, and the most family-friendly of those is right around Tupper Lake. With just three mountains needed to complete the Tupper Lake Triad, you can work on this one over a weekend or wrap it up in the morning and have lunch in town while you fill out the registration form. The Triad is the perfect starter challenge for those just getting in to hiking or for hikers looking to expand their patch and sticker collection.

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 - each of which is within a few minutes of the village - 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
