McGinn mountain 10-4-2017

Climbed a small peak in the Central Adirondacks north of Lake Abanakee - McGinn Mountain (no name on USGS maps). From trailhead on Pelon Road near the landfill, I followed the Paisley Falls and then the Elm Island ski trails north. Then, it was an easy bushwhack up the western ridge of McGinn mountain. Lots of views along the way to the top from ledges along the southern face. Nice falls colors and a lovely day.

some pictures

Wow, nice photos. Great views from there, huh? Trees are starting to pop too!
That section of the Cedar is really bony most of the year...Did you happen to see the water levels above the falls?

Great photos!
I have followed several of the old snowmobile markings part-way up McGinn, and always wanted to return to finish the climb, a fun area to explore for sure, thanks for the report!
Please check back on the Walker Brook fb convo when you can, thanks again man.

Thanks.

The photo of the Cedar River was taking just west of McGinn mountain - so I guess downstream from the falls. I don't have any other photos as the trail I followed was not close to the river.
