This hike was meant as an introduction to the Adirondacks for a few Adirondack first-timers in our hiking group on this day: Asmir and Rehana. Hurricane mountain is a perfect intro hike to the area, and fulfils all of the necessary requirements: fairly short (about 8km) and excellent views from a rocky, open top. Plus it has a decomissioned fire tower, if you like such things. The hike started off in mostly sunny but very windy conditions. The top was going to be breezy!....

For early to mid-march, there was very little to no snow on the ground. Snowshoes were not necessary except if you wanted extra grip. South facing slopes were especially melted out.
