Drive or ride up the historic Whiteface Veterans’ Memorial Highway to reach the top of NY’s fifth-highest peak at 4,867 feet! Stop at 4610′ Grill food truck to savor the gourmet rustic cuisine our talented chefs have prepared for you. Don’t forget to visit the Castle Gift Shop for souvenirs and gifts that will provide lasting memories of your Adirondack vacation. To reach the summit, you’ll hike the fifth-of-a-mile-long Alpine Nature Trail to enjoy truly spectacular 360-degree panoramic views of the Adirondacks, New England, and Canada. A visit to the Adirondacks is not complete without a trip to the top!

  • Please note: The Alpine Nature Trail climb can be steep and slippery, so proper footwear is essential - check the daily weather report to prepare.

  • The Nature Trail to the Summit is not wheelchair accessible; but the elevator carved deep into the mountain is fully accessible so don't miss those amazing views!
