On Thursday I decided to head to Cooper Kill (also referred to as Cooper Kiln for some reason) pond ... a small pond nestled between several hills/mountains just to the east of Whiteface Mtn.

The trail starts out innocently enough ... wide (shared with snowmobiles in winter) and relatively smooth

A little bit of color along the way ...

The trail becomes more rocky and "rootier" ... moving steadily uphill ... 2 mtn bikers passed me & I don't know they managed to pedal up this mess

Another view looking in the other direction ... notice that many of the white birches have lost their leaves already

Another Adirondack erratic ... near the pond

5.4 miles round trip ... 1400 ft elevation gain from the trail head to the high point on the trail.
