We have been up this ridge a number of times in the past but always got there via canoe or kayak while we were camping/fishing. This is the first time visiting Lowe's Ridge (aka Hitchen's Pond overlook) via a hiking trail. The hike into Low's Ridge is an easy to moderate hike along a wide dirt road with lots of view of wetlands on both sides. There are even stunning views of Silver Lake Mountain and it amazing ledges. This is a must for any adventure seeker. From the ridge, you can see miles and miles of the Bog River and the Adirondack Park in general. You can even see Mt. Marcy on a clear day!
