Cascade and Porter Mountains | C'est Notre Monde Map


Discover one of the most accessible panoramas of the Adirondacks at the peak of Cascade Mountain. The top of this 1249-meter-high (4097 ft) mountain offers breathtaking views of the High Peaks including: Marcy, Algonquin, Giant, Gothics and more. In addition, this summit is only 3.5 km (2.17 miles) from the parking lot, so getting to the top does not demand much effort.

C’est Notre Monde invites you to combine this summit with that of neighbouring Porter Mountain just 1 km (0.62 mile) further on. This short detour allows you to admire the rocky summit of Cascade while keeping the High Peaks in view.

The short distance and exceptional view of the High Peaks make Cascade and Porter an excellent choice as an introduction to the Adirondacks for beginners and experienced hikers alike.
