Harrington mtn (Wilcox Lake WF) 3/6/16

Hike to a ledge on southern ridge of Harrington mountain (about 1/2 mile south from its tallest peak). Bushwhacked in from Oregon Creek trail. This is a different ledge than the one near Eagle pond.

some pictures

Awesome day to be in the woods and what a great view!!!

Are those the ledges that are SE of Eagle Pond (over the top of the Mt.)? I've been eyeballing them on imagery for a while, but couldn't figure out a good way to get to them.

Did you hit any unofficial trails while you were poking around? We were up there a few years ago and came across a rather complex set of hunter's trails marked with orange can lids and paint blazes.

Cool area to explore. Did you see any more moose sign?

Yes, it is about 1 mile SSE of Eagle pond at around 2100 feet elevation ... on the other side of the mountain.

I didn't see any boot leg trails, but there could be some in the area given the large hunters camp at the base.

No moose sign.

Solid!

I have the same view (different season) from your second to last picture. From the bridge over the outlet of Rathburn Swamp?

Looks like the same spot. I didn't know the name for the swamp. My map just shows it as Stewart Creek.

I got the name from my 1994 copy of Discover the Southeastern Adirondacks, by Barb McMartin. She describes it as a local name and a wet crossing over a "long sinuous, not very tall dam". I'm glad there's a bridge there now; much easier.
