Highlights

  • Iroquois Peak is 8th highest peak in the Adirondack Mountains in New York State, and is the southernmost peak of the MacIntyre Range, which also includes Wright Peak and Algonquin Peak.
  • Although the mountain does not have an officially maintained trail, a well maintained "herd path" leads to the summit from the northeast.
"Was a great day for weather, Sunny with few clouds, About 26c. Got a great parking spot at 8am @ the ADK Loj , Met a few friendly hikers along the way. Combined this hike with Algonquin to make Great long hike with the guys and seemed much longer coming back lol " - ramjet1963, Sep 7, 2018
"Climbed up to the ridge from Lake Colden and made the traverse across the Macintyres. Summitting Boundary, Iroquois, Algonquin and Wright and taking in the gorgeous views all along the way. " - Right-On, Jun 16, 2018
"Très belle journée avec Mélanie. Nous avons fais un bon 22km avec Wright, Algonquin, Bouandry et Iroquois. Le retour c'est fait par Avanche Pass. Beaucoup de glace pour monter. Les crampons furent nécessaire. Très boueux en descendant. " - fsoucy76, Nov 4, 2017
"Well I had to give this one a try or risk coming back over Algonquin again, lol. A lot of people consider this easy, but it's tricky in a few places and the path is very narrow in others. Also, you have to climb back up Algonquin when you're done 😩" - MarkEarle67, Aug 14, 2017
"Got a 622am start time. Heading to the Macintyre Range today. Hiking by myself and the trails were empty. The peace and quiet and serenity is amazing! After what seemed like a crazy long climb I finally reached the summit of Algonquin at 934am. I was the only person there. Only stayed for a few minutes and took some pictures and headed over to Iroquois. I reached that summit after a short but strenuous hike at 1014am. It was warm with mild wind. Some clouds but still had visibility. Took some pictures and then headed back towards Algonquin. There was rain in the forecast and I could see it com" - tscha1, Jul 25, 2016
