Hiking - Cliffs on Moose Mountain

Moose Mountain (1840') is just south of Wells, NY, in the southern Adirondacks. There's no trail to its summit, but that's why we like it and go there every fall on a leaf-peeping hike. It's about 90 minutes by map and compass to the top of some open cliffs that offer breathtaking views of the valley below, and as a friend once called them, the "Persian-carpeted hills" in the distance. In 7 years of doing this hike, we've never met another soul, and today was no exception. Colors were near peak on a blustery cool fall day.
