Hiking Giant Mountain in the Adirondacks, New York

On Memorial Day weekend, we spent hiking and camping in the Adirondacks, a frequent family destination. Giant Mountain was the choice to summit, one of the high peaks in Keene Valley in ADK.

We're a team of five, including our 18-month old daughter.Two friends joined us the first part of the hike.

The trail was easily marked with a red tag. The  hike was rather strenuous with some rock scrambling. Steep parts, but  with good hand holds and good shoes, they're manageable. Beautiful views on the way.
