Mt. Jo is a great hike for those who might wish to experience the high peaks without actually climbing one.There is a short trail and a long trail both leading to the summit.We went up the short trail and returned on the long trail. Views of many of the high peaks are stunning. Difficult to see much towards Whiteface Mt. but overall a great vista. You need to be somewhat fit to hike either way but the distance is fairly short. We got hot and jumped in Heart Lake after our hike!

You need to park ur car at High Peaks Information Center , after 1 pm it seems to be cheaper.
Hike was gd, less views while hiking. Short hike is treacherous. Would not recommend if u r with family or alone , as it’s very dense. We herd some growling noise of animal, definitely not a dog but not sure what it was.

It had some challenges yet definitely do-able. We loved this hike. Not too long, not too short. Perfect day for a 3.0 round-trip hike. I would do this one every weekend - if we lived there.

We climbed Mt Jo easily and found the views to be wonderful. Heart Lake is picturesque and you can see several other mountains that will then inspire you to climb other mountains in the High Peaks. Can't wait to go back!

Close to ADK LOJ and easy to hike... well worn paths but quite tourist-y. Good views from the top; not difficult to hike.
