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.
"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
"Fourth peak of a LONG day of hiking. Our 10th 46er. This peak certainly has the best views out of the whole range, with views of layers upon layers of massive mountains as far as the eye can see from all sides." - RangersApprentice, Aug 26, 2017
"Wow, this is by far my favourite peak in the Adirondacks by far !! The views are stunning. The trail we took was interesting and challenging in some spots. A tough day all round, but these views more than made up for that. 10/10 for views on this beauty !!" - UK-Ranger, Aug 26, 2017
