Quest for 46: Hiking the Adirondack High Peaks – Allen Mountain
Allen Mountain is a long hike no matter how you approach it. We decided to stay at the Flowed Lands Lean-To and approach it via the East River Trail following the Opalescent River. As a bonus, this trail passes the beautiful Handing Spear Falls.
Allen Mountain from the Flowed Lands was just over 16 miles. The trail to herd path was very flat, dry and root/rock free. The herd path was everything expected when we started to hit elevation. Steep, rocky, and RED SLIME.
