This trail traverses the Hoffman Notch Wilderness Area.


Midway is Big Marsh, which is more of a pretty pond, and much of the northern end follows Hoffman Notch Brook for abundant scenery. The trail is 14.7 miles round trip. It's not an overly challenging trail but involves unbridged stream crossings and some muddy spots. There is 1720' elevation gain.

Northern Trailhead: Blue Ridge Road, (CR 84), 5.7 mi. west of Exit 29 on the Northway, I-87.

Southern Trailhead: End of the Loch Muller Road, found by taking Hoffman Rd 5.2 mi. west from Rt. 9 in Schroon Lake, then right on Potash Rd. and right again on Loch Muller Rd.
