Ascent Trip ReportSolo hiking trip to Saranac Lake, NY to work toward completing the Saranac Lake 6er. Drove 5 hours to my first trail head. Decided to first hike Scarface Mountain. Signed trail register. 7.6 miles round trip. Hiked quite quickly arriving at summit in 1:35; then 1:25 down to trail head. Total hiking time was 3:00. Got to landing area with open views; then continued on trail for 1/2-3/4 mile to make sure I hit the true summit. I didn't see the sign in the tree; either it was gone or I missed seeing it. Other hikers I spoke with said they didn't see it either. I decided to turn around at a point where the indistinct trail then only headed down. My GPS indicated 3090 feet at a large rock where I took a photo- the highest elevation on the trail so I'm quite sure I hit the true summit. #1 of the Saranac Lake 6er.
