Mount Van Hoevenberg is also home of the Olympic bobsled and luge run, but on the opposite side of the hiking trail. It is again possible to approach the summit from the top of the run (entry fee required) or via a trail starting at the cross-country ski center; but these routes are much easier to find on the descent if you choose to leave a car at the base of the run. The following trail is the preferred route and much more scenic.
Primary Trailhead: From the intersection of Route 86 and Route 73 in Lake Placid, follow Route 73 toward Keene. Continue for 4-miles to the Adirondack Loj Road on the right. Follow here for another four miles to Meadow Lane on the left. Follow here for 0.25 miles to the trailhead on the left.
