After a few days of intense physical activity, we picked an easier hike to finish the Holiday weekend. We had hiked Noonmark last winter, and remembered the hike to be sometimes steep, but short enough not to be too challenging for kids.
Noonmark Mountain is a 3,556-foot mountain near St. Huberts in the High Peaks. This prominent peak provides 360-degree views, including the Great Range, the Dix Range, Giant Mountain, the Ausable River valley, and the village of Keene.
Soon enough we were making our way over the 2.1 miles to the summit. As with most short hikes to the top of any mountain, the hiking was steep and sustained at times. But there were several ledges along the way that provided nice resting, and photo, opportunities. It was a great day, with little to no wind, warm enough, so we spent time relaxing on the summit. It was only the thought of beer and a great dinner that motivated us to start the hike down.
