Little Porter Mountain
Directions to Trailhead: From the intersection of Route 73 and 86 in Lake Placid follow Route 73 toward Keene. Proceed through Keene into Keene Valley on Route 73. Take the right after the Ausable Inn and follow to the end of the road at The Garden Parking Area. There is a $7 per day fee as of 2013. Parking is limited and the lot is usually full by 8 AM or earlier on weekends. On most weekends, a shuttle bus runs from the overflow parking at Marcy Field north of Keene Valley. Parking is not permitted on the road to the Garden, so one must park in the village if not using the shuttle.
