A mellow, but fun backcountry run.

Description

A short climb on the Azure Mountain Trail will take you to the fire tower on top of this peak that boasts great views of both the Adirondack High Peaks and the St. Lawrence River Valley.

The ski trail starts on right of the hiking trail if you are looking at the tower and follows a relatively open forested area. I don't think this is an official ski trail, but there is some traffic from nearby university students. It's a fun ride, but not a destination spot. If you are in the area it's probably worth checking out.

The best feature of the line is a small drop off an overhanging ledge that's about 8 feet or so, maybe even more without snow. Actual points and trail on map may not be completely accurate, but this is more or less the direction the trail follows and you should be able to find your way.
