Description

This is a very tough loop over the Adirondack Great Ridge that covers 8 peaks.

It starts at the Saint Huberts parking area and runs by the Ausable Club.

Follow the roads to the West River Trail.

You then ascend up the WolfJaws using the Wedge Brook Trail.

A spur takes you out to Lower WolfJaw, then you climb over the rest of the great ridge over to Mt.

Haystack.

After a sharp descent and some flat at river level, you go back up Mt.

Sawteeth and continue down on the Rainbow Falls Trail, and Son Ausable road to the parking area.

This is a long and tough hike!
