Algonquin Peak (NY, USA) - 5,115ft (1,559m)

Algonquin Peak is the second highest mountain in New York state and one two of the 46ers of the Adirondack region. It rises 1,559m (5,115ft) high. Last weekend, we hiked to the top of the mountain with some pretty icy conditions up there. The hike itself is not difficult, but has sections with a lot of rock to stumble over and some flat (slippery) sections, but nothing serious. On the way to Algonquin peak, you can opt for a short (0.8 miles roundtrip) detour to Wright peak, which is the 16th highest peak in the Adirondacks with 1,398m (4,58ft).
