Snowy Mountain is located near the village of Indian Lake in the southeastern Adirondacks. It is also very close to the Lewey Lake State Campground which makes it very convenient for an overnight stay.
The trail starts on Route 30, just 7 miles south of Indian Lake or 17 miles north of Speculator. The first 2.5 miles is a rather easy, rolling trail. However, the last 1.2 miles ascends almost the entire rise of 2100 feet in a rugged eroded trail. The views are some of the best available in the Southern Adirondacks, so try to choose a nice day to climb. Bring plenty of water as there is only one reliable water source on the 7.5 mile round trip.
