This is the best opportunity in the Adirondacks to experience a magnificent alpine summit and look for birds without having to hike there! Please keep in mind that this is a seasonal road and a fee is required for access.

How to get there

The tollbooth is about three miles from the four-way stop in Wilmington. Follow the Whiteface Memorial Highway past the Santa's Workshop theme park straight up to the toll.


This is a wonderful high elevation spruce-fir forest! During warmer months, birders will delight in hearing (and hopefully seeing!) the elusive Bicknell's Thrush and Blackpoll Warbler.
