Highlights

  • Upper Wolfjaw Mountain is an Adirondack 46er and part of the Great Range of the Adirondack Mountains.
  • It and adjacent Lower Wolfjaw Mountain are so named for their appearance in profile.
  • Flanked to the southwest by Armstrong Mountain and to the northeast by Lower Wolfjaw Mtn.
  • The summit is tree covered but a few side trails offer vistas.
"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
"Final mountain of a very long day. Our 12th 46er. Sunlight was fading fast so this wasn't a long stay. The trail between Gothics and this peak was VERY technical, and we nearly got attacked by angry bees!" - RangersApprentice, Aug 26, 2017
"This day Deb and I were out to do Gothics and Armstrong, then figured we traversed across to do Upper Wolfjaw and head out. I had done Lower Wolfjaw back in the 90's with a friend and we both tired so she figured she would do it with me another time." - hbotc, May 28, 2016
