Highlights

  • Gothics is the tenth highest of the High Peaks Region of the Adirondack Park.
  • Much of the mountain is covered in bare rock slides, which give the mountain its name due to their resemblance to Gothic architecture.
  • The summit has near 360 degree views, which combined with its location in the High Peaks Region gives splendid views of the Adirondacks.
"Began hike from JBL. Not a day you would typically choose to hike with such bad rain but it wasn’t cold so didn’t present too much of a problem. Prevented us getting a view from the summit though so will return at some stage to see this as it’s supposed to be one of the better views. On the latter stages of the ascent there is a lot of open rock. One part has a long ladder, one part has cables and other parts are just open rock. It’s a tricky ascent and even trickier coming down. Spectacular hike though and one I will do again. " - rhinteractive, Jul 26, 2018
"Easily my favourite peak to date. The views from here are breathtaking, and the trail up via pyramid is awesome. My second time here, with a friend to help him get to 3/46 in the ADK 46er Challenge." - UK-Ranger, Jul 18, 2018
"Fin de semaine camping et rando en solo. Je peux finalement décoller en vitesse vendredi vers 18h30. Je me dépêche et j'oublie de quoi mais je n'arrive pas à savoir quoi... Traverse les frontière, attrape l'orage au USA et voilà que la mémoire me revient.. J'AI OUBLIÉ MES BOTTES DE RANDO!!!! Il est vraiment trop tard pour faire demi-tour. Je vais faire ma fds en running. Mud season ou pas?!?! En fait ce n'était pas si pire que ça. Là où il y a de la bouette et de l'eau, il y a aussi des roches sur lesquels je peux sauter! J'entame mon premier sommet des 6 prévus à l'horaire. En revenant sur me" - fsoucy76, Jun 2, 2018
"Gnarly day gettin pitted with the bros given her a full send on lower and upper wolfjaw, armstrong, pyramid, gothics, and sawteeth. Not many views due to the clouds but all in all a righteous day. " - LGH-Topple, Oct 14, 2017
"Successful Lower Great Range loop, with a couple wild and crazy guys! Rocks were a little wet from rain the night before, and the cloud cover stole some summit views, but when we could see the foliage was on point! Being an aspiring 46er is hard when I live in CO, but I’m hoping to knock a few off a year until I get it done!" - LGH-Dan, Oct 14, 2017
