(14 miles RT) Hikers commonly choose to climb Dix Mountain from the south by taking this popular Elk Lake trailhead. The Dix Mountain Wilderness area is magnificent and unspoiled. Some believe it is one of the best locations for taking in the silent, remote beauty of the Adirondacks. Dix Mountain, at 4,857 feet, ranks sixth in High Peaks elevation. Part of this challenging trail is on private property so please be respectful when hiking. The mountain also has a number of different trailheads making this a good opportunity for an overnight adventure. Since it is a mostly bald peak it offers some of the best views of the Great Range, MacIntyre Range, Giant, Elk Lake, Lake Champlain and, even, the Green Mountains of Vermont.
