Overview

This hike is a well-trafficked, moderately strenuous-to-difficult out and back hike to Street Mountain and Nye Mountain in the High Peaks Wilderness in Adirondack Park.

Street and Nye Mtns. are considered trailless peaks, thus the trails are not maintained and unmarked. However, the paths are generally well-defined, and several cairns are placed along the way.

Getting Started

Fee-based parking is available at the Adirondack Loj & Heart Lake Program Center on Adirondack Loj Rd. in Lake Placid, NY. Typically, the parking lot fills early and quickly. There is parking along one side of Adirondack Loj Rd., as well, which requires a road walk to and from the trailhead.

Begin by heading to the trailhead for Mt. Jo. Heart Lake will be on your left. Where the trail diverges, bear left (away from Mt. Jo), and then follow the Old Nye Ski Trail and herd paths.

There are six water crossings on this hike. Most crossings are narrow, but the water crossing of Indian Brook is wide. Indian Brook and perhaps other water crossings may be difficult, dangerous, or impassable in high water.

Street and Nye (ADK 22/46 and ADK 24/46) (10/13/19, 6:38:54AM)
Second hike of the weekend (hiked Phelps and Tabletop the day before). Hit the trail early when it was still dark (stayed in bunkhouse the night before). Was the first one to register at the trailhead for the day. Had both summits to myself and only came across a handful of people. Mostly an unmaintained trail on the way up and then a herd path to each summit. Both summits were mostly wooded with limited or no views. Ascent wasn’t too bad, but the unmaintained trail and water crossings slowed pace a bit. Trial kept it interesting with different sections. Made really great time down from Street and made it to NYE very quickly from trail split. Move well through that section. Nice fall day and great way to end the hiking season!
