One of the coolest hikes you can do near Ontario is just across the border and it involves a spectacular stone path up a mountain.
Whiteface Mountain is the fifth largest in New York State, representing one of the Hight Peaks of the Adirondacks. It's most known as the site of an amazing five-star ski resort, with the greatest vertical of any lift-serviced mountain in the Northeast. Located in Wilmington, the mountain is only a 3 hour drive across the border from Kingston.
There's more to the mountain than just epic skiing - it features a half-mile Stairway Ridge Trail made of stone steps that leads hikers to the mountain's summit:
Many travellers have noticed its resemblance to the Great Wall of China, calling it a miniature version of it. The start of the path marks the point that's 4,610 feet above sea level, and the end of the man-made path offers unparalleled views of the surrounding land.
You'll see the breathtaking mountain ranges, rivers and valleys of the Adirondacks, and it's truly a sight to behold:
