| Location:||USA-New York|

Ascent Trip ReportDid the Noonmark & Round Mt loop. 6.8 miles. Parked at the lot off of rt73. Walked up to the Noonmark trailhead and proceeded to go up and over Noonmark. Pretty good climb for a 3000'er but well worth it. Nice views from the open summit of most of the high peaks. Great views of Dix and Giant. Continued over the summit and followed the trail down towards round pond. Cut back through the valley between Noonmark and Round and then up and over Round. Round is a pleasant hike up from this direction. The summit is open with great views of Giant and Noonmark. I went down the Round Mt. trail which ends right next to the parking area. Great 6.5-6.8 mile loop. Today climbed truly felt like winter. Winds at the summit gusted at 30-40 mph and the temps were about 8 with a windchill of about -18. Brrrrrrr. Loved it.
