Description: The Jay Range lies within the Jay Mountain Wilderness and is the prominent geographical feature of this section of New York State Forest Preserve lands. This trail was recently rebuilt by the Adirondack Mountain Club, making it a much more pleasurable hike. The Jay Range is a long ridge that has numerous rocky ledges and open views. Many people stop at the first prominent summit, but it is possible to continue hiking on for some distance across the ridge. Although, you will find this section of the trail is not marked and more difficult to follow.
