This is a difficult out and back trail to Catamount Mountain in Adirondack Park. Although short, it includes some steep sections that involves climbing using your hands. At one point towards the top, there is a short chimney that you need to climb up. There are nice views at the top of Whiteface as well as Taylor Pond, Silver Lake and Union Falls Lake.
There is parking at the trailhead for approximately 15 cars. The trail register is visible from the parking area. There is a large sign on the road marking the parking area.
The beginning of the hike is flat and wide. Further on, there are large steps and steep sections.
