Hadley Mountain has long been one of the most popular hiking destinations in the southern Adirondacks. Forming the western block of a larger complex labelled West Mountain on USGS topos, one sees several boulders and outcrops near the trail leading to the firetower, but there is a lot more hidden from view of hikers. Taller cliffs lie tucked away in several places.
The only sane public access is the Hadley Mountain Trailhead, itself a difficult item to locate. Take Northway exit 21 and head south to Luzerne. When Lake Luzerne lies close to the road to the left (by the school), take a right, driving downhill and turning sharply left into town. Turn right and cross the Hudson River above Rockwell Falls, then continue another 1/10th mile and turn right onto Hadley-Stony Creek Road. Drive about five minutes and take a left onto Hadley Mtn. Road. Drive along until you see Tower Road and take a right. Tower Road is a rough, dirt road; drive it to the trailhead.
