Bald Mountain-Three Sisters(Southern Adirondacks)
Was planning to head up towards the High Peaks today, but got a late start this morning, so opted to do a bushwhack hike in the southern Adirondacks instead. Driving west out of Warrensburg, there is group of small mountains known as the Three Sisters. The most recognizable is Pine Mountain(the northernmost of the three), which is home to the Hickory Ski Center along the mountain's north slopes. My goal for the day was to hike up 1975 foot Bald Mountain, the tallest and southernmost peak in the range. Access is at the end of gravel Katts Corners Road, which is the road that continues south just past Hickory Ski Center along the east side of the Hudson River. I parked off to the side at a gate and was on my way.
