Adirondack High Peaks
High Peaks Wilderness
At 4400 feet, Armstrong Mountain is the twenty-second highest peak in the Adirondacks. Located within the Great Range in the High Peaks Wilderness, this peak is not as popular as the other peaks in the area. However, the views are worth a stop as you traverse the Great Range.
The ascent to the summit includes a huge ladder and cables to assist in your steep climb to the top. The most popular route to the summit is to start from the Keene Valley trailhead and take the trail past Lower Wolf Jaw as well as Upper Wolf Jaw. It's another mile from Upper Wolf Jaw to the summit of Armstrong Mountain. This is a 5+ mile one way hike with a nearly 4000 foot elevation gain.
We recommend checking out the guide book High Peaks Trails and the maps Trails of the Adirondack High Peaks and/or Adirondack Park: Lake Placid/ High Peaks (National Geographic Trails Illustrated Map #742) to assist in planning your adventure in the High Peaks Wilderness of the Adirondacks.
