County Line Lakes Snowshoe Hike & Bushwhack
Sat, Mar 02 • 9:00 AM

Let's explore a remote chain of lakes on the Hamilton-Fulton county line! A marked DEC trail leads from Pinnacle Road to County Line Lake, but to see the others in the cluster (Duck, Winter, Fisher Vly, and Little Oxbarn) you must venture off the beaten path.

The main goal for the day will be the 3.7-mile foot trail to County Line Lake. This route climbs 1000 feet, and if the snow is fresh and deep we may have our hands full just getting this far. But if the snow conditions are favorable, let's venture forth and see what there is to see!

Hiking Distance: The hiking trail to County Line Lake is 3.7 miles long and climbs 1000 feet. There are some stream crossings that could be a problem without adequate ice. If we opt to bushwhack to the other neighboring ponds, this could add significant distance to the hike.

Meeting Location: This information will be sent to trip participants via email. Please ensure your settings allow event-related emails.

Deadline for Signing Up: Friday, March 1, 2019, 7:00 PM. Sign-ups after this time might not be noticed by the trip leader.

Risk Statement: While we never deliberately court dangerous situations, the exploration of wilderness areas implies personal risk, such as being injured in a remote area. By participating in any Adirondack Wilderness Explorer event, you agree to assume full responsibility for the personal safety and well being of yourself and your guests.

Seasonal Conditions: Wintry conditions should be expected, with cold weather and deep snow. The days are short and cold, and snow may be present.
