Ascent Trip ReportI was spending the MLK weekend with Molly up in Lake Placid. The weather was looking iffy all weekend. We opted for something on the quick side and lower elevation. We parked at the Van Hoveneberg biatholon area and followed the yellow follow signs into the maze of XC ski trails. We quickly lost them. An employee of Van Hoe helped us out and told us where to go. We went back to our car and drove to a different lot with a lot of people skiing. We saw more signs there and followed those. This was more promising. We eventually left the xc ski trails and made our way up the mountain. We eventually reached the view ledge, looking towards the High Peaks. It was quite nice. We then retraced our steps back to the car.
