Hitchens Pond Overlook 2.14.21

Living in Tupper Lake I usually trail run this little vista just south of town in nicer weather. I usually get the urge to visit at least once each winter. Last week I decided to give it a go. Usually the parking is much closer at a gate but plowing adds a little over 2 miles each way. The start went quickly on snowmobile trail for the first 2 miles. The rest was not touched except for a lone deer track. I skied down to Hitchens Pond and the Dam. I switched to snowshoes for the trail to the "summit" The route was unbroken and unconsolidated at 30 inches deep. The ski was tolerable but the snowshoe was quite a trudge. RT it was about 10.7 miles
Full TR and photos at my website at the link below as well as some summer and wildlife photos from past trips in the area.

Wonderful trip report and photos. I've only explored that area during the warmer months so it's nice to see what it looks like in the winter.

That's all for now. Take care and until next time...be well.

Itís interesting to see an area that typically is accessed only in the warmer months. Thanks for sharing.
