This hike, with many extensive views, is a easy out and back hike to Nubble, also known as Giant’s Nubble, in Giant Mountain Wilderness in Adirondack Park.

This trail goes by Ridge Lookout and Giant Washbowl.

Getting Started

The trailhead for Nubble is the same as that for Giant Mountain via the Ridge Trail. Parking is available along NY-73 in Keene Valley, NY, and the trailhead is on the NY-73 West side of the road.

This hike includes 5 narrow water crossings.

Although there are many lookouts along the way, some of which could be assumed to be the summit of Giant’s Nubble, the summit is ~1.4 mi from the trailhead.
