Finally we get to hike the Jay range, a place I'd heard good things about for a long time! We were saving this one up for Luke and Sophie, and when the weather looked good we went for it!

A sunny and moderately buggy day saw us parked along Glen Road, ready to tackle Jay Peak again (last October's snowbound attempt was very different than today's conditions!). Instead of having to carefully route-find, a clear and easy path led us up to the first lookout (where we had turned around last October).

The hike along the ridge from that point eastward is fantastic. It is mostly open, with lots of meadows, open rock, ups and downs. In short - it is a fantastic hike by Adirondack standards! In my opinion, this quiet rarely-visited peak ranks in the top ten of all-time best Adirondack mountain hikes.
