A small pull off provides trail access to the somewhat new trail on its way to 1347 foot Cheney Mountain.
The trail crosses an old landfill.
You must look carefully across the open landfill for the trail markings. The trail is clearly marked heading up towards a trail register.
Heading up the .9 mile trail through mixed forest.
A left trail breaks off providing north views up Lake Champlain.
Continuing on to a south and west facing view. Surely the bench makes this a pleasant spot to relax and watch the sunset.
Tailings from nearby Iron Mines.
Rickety old buildings and equipment from the mines.
The Champlain Bridge crossing the lake from New York to Vermont.
Heading back. Although they look innocent enough, the slick leaves and acorns were a bit tricky.
Hiked only 2.6 total miles RT for the day before the steady rain came in.
