Lyon Mountain


An excellent hike in the northeast Adirondacks, Lyon Mountain should not be skipped by birders either. Birders should follow the new trail to the summit (this trail follows switchbacks while the old trail goes straight up the mountain) and they can find a wide array of warblers, vireos, flycatchers and other songbirds as they hike. The summit area is of the greatest interest, however, as it harbors species like Boreal Chickadee, Blackpoll Warbler, Yellow-bellied Flycatcher, Swainson’s Thrush, and most importantly, Bicknell’s Thrush. An early start helps increase the odds of finding the sought after Bicknell’s.
