Ascent Trip ReportViews from nearby Coney Mountain made me eager to hike this nearby sister peak. It's open summit (with expansive views south and west) can be clearly seen from Coney's bald peak. Though a shorter, more direct one-mile bushwhack to the summit is possible, I followed a nearby ATV track (which was blocked in several places by significant amounts of blowdown) for a distance and bushwhacked my way to the summit from the more gently-sloping northeastern side.
Note: This peak was renamed in honor of Andrew Goodman, one of the young voter rights workers killed by Klan members in 1964 during what has become known as the 'Mississippi Burning' case. Goodman's family had spent summers in Tupper Lake during his formative years.
