Conglin Lake recon 12-6-20

we set off from the Hall Rd TH, checked out the Potter Homestead, then zipped down the trail to North Creek Falls. The trail is in good shape, with just one blowdown. After exploring the falls a bit, we headed towards Dexter Lake, but took a hard left just after the Mcklinney Vly bridge, and bush-whacked back to Conglin Lake. Took about 15 minutes to go from the trail to the lake, through mostly open and pretty flat woods. Came right to the campsite on Conglin, which has not been used in a very long time! Didn't have time to check out the upper ponds, as we wanted to do the loop to Watermills Pond and out before dark. Defiantly an area that needs a lot more exploration, and the lack of any info on the area is really a Godsend, as we hafta to make our own choices on what to see.

I love that area! I missed getting back there this year. Thanks for sharing your adventure.

There's a lot of neat features to explore back in there. The woods are rugged, but off trail exploration isn't too difficult. I've only been to Middle and Upper Conglin Lakes in the winter, very scenic.

Do a lot of snowmobiling there, desolate! Many nooks, crannies and you are correct, the lack of info is actually pretty neat- thanks for the report
