From Lake Placid, go east on Rt. 73 to Adirondack Loj Rd., which is the first right after the ski jumps. The parking lots are 5 miles from Rt. 73. There is a $10/day parking fee. From the parking lot at the High Peaks Information Center at the end of Adirondak Loj Rd. return to the entrance station and find the trail at the far corner of the snowplow turnaround. Description: The trail descends gently 300 yds. to a road next to Heart Lake. Turn right for 60 yds. and the true start of the trail to Mt. Jo. After 1/4 mile of climb, there is a junction. The Short Trail goes right while the Long trail goes straight. The Short Trail is only 0.2 mi. shorter, but is considerably steeper and rougher, so the Long Trail is better for most family groups. The two trails rejoin just before the summit. Total distance 1.1 mi.
