Hadley Mountain has an open summit with good views to the east, south (including the Great Sacandaga Lake), and west, but it also has a restored fire tower which allows great views in all directions. The trail is never very steep and is in generally good condition.

The hike is a steep ascent for a mile or so. Great views and a fire tower.

Lots of snow, water and mud. It was warm for winter, so ice was melting. Took my 5 yo here two years ago and again today. It's good for kids and dogs.

Moderate hike with a beautiful view at the fire tower, especially pretty with foliage. Saw some baby rattlesnakes at the top!

Hiked on 9/30/14 with my husband and 2 dogs. The uphill portion is very persistent but the view at the top is nice and the foliage was pretty. According to my FitBit, it was 1.8 miles to the top, so 3.6 miles round trip plus some extra distance from walking around the top of the mountain. We did the whole round trip in 2.5 hours - 1.5 hour to the fire tower and then 1 hour back down.
