Hiking at Hickory

Hickory and its affiliated properties provide, in addition to ski trails, glades, and lift lines, a variety of marked and maintained hiking/snowshoeing trails on more than 575 acres of Adirondack terrain. The mountain on which Hickory Ski Center is located is Pine Mountain, the first of the three peaks in the Three Sisters Range. Third Sister Peak and Jimmy’s Peak/Bald Mountain complete the triad of mountains in the range. Hickory has access rights to all three peaks and has recently completed hiking trails to the raw backcountry to Bald Mountain.

Beginning hikers, seniors, and young children find the “Pinki’s Paths” the easiest and shortest route. It offers views of the cliffs along the Hudson River and the confluence of the Schroon and Hudson Rivers.

The advanced trail “Lee’s Leap” to Jimmy’s Peak/Bald Mountain or via “Judy’s Jaunt” is a 3-4 hour hike to the peak. It offers a great view of Mount Marcy in the distance and may offer views of other high peaks on a clear day. Along the way, you will pass a spectacular erratic currently named “The Rock.” It is a great photo opportunity. You will traverse typical Adirondack terrain, including bedrock ledges, hardwood and evergreen stands, natural springs, trout spawning streams, and quaking bogs.

The “Sue’s Sashay” Trail is intermediate to the halfway point and then becomes a challenging steep to the crest, the former site of the Roost, which burned down several years ago. This can be a 2-3 hour hike with rest stops. There is a beautiful view of the southern Adirondacks and the Confluence of the Schroon and Hudson Rivers.

The “Bunny’s Boulevard” Trail is intermediate and takes you to the top of Pine Mountain, providing a panoramic view of the southern Adirondacks, Green Mountains, Warrensburg, and Gore Mountain. Access to hiking is available any time, any day, with an easy register and pay kiosk. Access to hiking is available any time, any day, with an easy register and pay kiosk in the parking lot.
