I may have an opportunity to get a quick morning hike in on Friday and will be staying near Cornith New York. Is there anything close by where you can hike up and enjoy some views?

Give Hadley a try. It's trailhead is on Hadley Hill road.
There is a maintained fire tower, that you can climb and get some
desent views. 2 miles up, and 2 miles down.
This is just North of Corinth.

Hunter, I agree wholeheartedly with Mike, it's close by and a great little mountain with great views.

Isn't Spruce Mountain in Corinth. It has a fire tower on top and the views are pretty nice.

Hadley is a nice mountain. If you want a longer hike, you can bushwack along the ridge from Hadley over to Roundtop. It is a relatively easy bushwack (a little over mile). Roundtop has nice open rock summit and you will most likely have it to yourself (Hadley can be crowded).

Spruce mountain has a fire tower with the bottom stairs missing. You can still climb it, but I would not consider it too safe. There are no views otherwise. The hike is short (about 1 mile one-way), but there is a maze of logging roads, and it is easy to make a wrong turn.

Thanks for the suggestions. Is there a place I can go on the web to get directions to the trailheads and or a brief description of the trails?

I would agree that Hadley is the best bet. I go to both of these for exercise when I am limited on time and Hadley is far superior to Spruce. The view from Spruce's tower is nice although the tower is in rough shape but the summit area has a couple buildings and other towers which detract from the appeal. I was there yesterday and there is a lot of litter on top as well. Hadley on the other hand is one of the fine little peaks in the southern adks.
