New York State is home to some of the most beautiful scenery you will find anywhere on the planet. One of the best ways to take in this beauty is by hiking some of the thousands of trails and mountains across the state.

Here’s a list of some of the more challenging Day Hikes you can enjoy here in New York.

This list isn’t for beginners, but if you’re up for a challenge and can handle some physical activity, you’ll be rewarded with beautiful vistas and peaceful surroundings.

Located near Lake George, this hike is a 3 mile one way trip that rewards you with a stunning view of Lake George.

2. Good Luck Mountain

This trail near Caroga Lake, NY in the Southern Adirondack Mountains is a 3.4 mile ‘out and back’ trip. The trail itself isn’t too difficult, but the challenge comes at the end when you scale the cliffs to discover a beautiful vista of the surrounding Good Luck Lake and Spectacle Lake.
