Ascent Trip Report

In pursuit of my "summer" Tupper Lake Triad: Mountain #2

After leaving Coney Mountain's parking area I made the short drive to the trailhead at Goodman Mountain, arriving at 9:25 am. There is a large well maintained parking area which includes a kiosk that explains the history behind the mountains name.

The hike begins by crossing a new wooden footbridge. The first mile or so is on an abandoned paved road and is actually wheelchair accessible for about a quarter mile. The road ascends a bit more after the last wheelchair spot but is still a gradual ascent. At 9:42 I arrived at the point where the trail turns left and leaves the old road. The trail gradually ascends to the summit (arrived at 10:03) which has impressive views.

Another well constructed and well marked trail (red DEC markers)
