Ampersand Mountain, Queen of the Saranac Lake Six

Ampersand Mountain in the Adirondacks is hardly a bump on the landscape compared to the great mountains of the West. Even by Adirondack standards it’s a modest peak. But its rewards are as good as it gets: rich old woods rich in birds and wildflowers, and after a steep climb that will give you a week’s cardiovascular exercise in an hour or two, a view that’s among the finest in the East.
