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!

did this trail as part of the tupper lake triad. it was cloudy with light rain, still a very pleasant trail.

Very nice hike. Really awesome that the first bit is paved for wheelchair access. However, a decent portion of the paved path has become eroded/bumpy and I would imagine having difficulty actually using it with a wheelchair. Hiking it is no issue whatsoever, and the rest of the trail is in great shape and is well-maintained and marked. Of the three Tupper Triad hikes, it's just not quite as exciting as the other two in my opinion. Even so, still well worth the hike with beautiful views at the top.

Exceptionally well-maintained and marked trail. If you are in decent shape this will not seem particularly steep at all. The fire tower is in very good shape and offers the best views on this mountains. However, if you are not up to climbing the tower for whatever reason, there are two very good lookouts with benches and big rocks with which to view the mountains, lakes, and rivers in the distance. Great hike!

Great hike. Well marked except read the brochure during the hike if you want to know about the different plants/flowers. Starts off vertical and continues that way for most of the trail. Second fire tower of the day (first one was Cathedral Rock)

A good workout to finish the triad. Volunteer was very informative. Fire tower views amazing. Glad I went early as it’s a popular spot.

Excellent for the family with some incline. Views from top and fire tower were amazing. Volunteer and dogs at the top we’re an added bonus!

This is a nice quick hike that gives you views of The Seward Range. Not difficult at all to do

This was our second hike this morning in our quest to complete the TL Triad. There were lots of mosquitoes despite it only being between 45-50 degrees. Bug repellent is a must!

Hiked the TL Triad this morning. The weather was great and the hike up amazing. Mt. Arab was the first one of the three. The trail is very well maintained and lucky for us no bugs since we started when it was 40 degrees.

Stairway to heaven!!!! Did it in 2016

Nice easy walk! Beautiful view at the top!

Wowzers. A long journey here, 4 high peaks are incredible, but an amazing day.

Here is a bit of a Summary:
1. Get a solid map - should be figured out by now :)
2. Don't just keep going straight - you'll miss Seymour, or miss the other three. If you see the lean-to's with the bottles and horse area you have gone too far
3. I should have broken these up. This was too much, even if I didn't get lost (to my own fault), it still would have been more enjoyable to break into two trips. Unless you are a glutton for punishment or an extraordinarily amazing hiker.
4. If you take the Calkins Brook Herd Path out - TAKE A RIGHT! You'll appreciate me saying this.
5. The Seaward Range is similar to Allen, that is the best comparison I have.
6. People are freaking amazing. ESPECIALLY WHILE HIKING.
7. I think this will be last hike alone.
8. Still a fantastically amazing day, I learned so much.
9. In actuality - Up & Up is the only way to describe the Seward Range. And I may have sung this 2-3...8 or 9 times.

We tacked this on as our fourth mountain of the day after completing the Tupper Lake Triad. The posts below mine are accurate. It is steep but really nice views of Ampersand & Seward. Took about 20 minutes up. Fun Fact: Panther is used as a substitute for Ampersand in the Saranac Lake 6er Relay race because the latter is in the High Peaks Wilderness and races are not allowed there.

We completed the Triad on Arab. Nice maintained trail. Not a huge deal but the sign says it's a mile up, not 7/10th of a mile. Small bench at the lookout. Good view from the tower and a cabin. We ate lunch on the porch. I also munched on a few mouthful's of gnats. They were out in full force.

We did this as #1 of the Tupper Lake Triad. Nice, easy trail with a good view. You can see Coney Mountain from the summit which is also part of the triad. We bushwhacked down the mountain.

Great little hike. Different concept of things. Pretty cool views. I loved the forest with the music in it. That part was really cool.

Did as part of the Tupper Lake Triad today. All 3 little mountains is just under 8 miles. Fun to do all 3 in one day. Very short hike 2.2 miles total. Great views from summit. There is a fire tower but if you do not like them you do not need to climb it to have good views. Look for the little benches to see great views.

Nice easy trail. Good for a beginner. I did this as part of the Tupper Lake Triad today. The three little mountains are about 8 miles round trip. The views at the top are ok. I was hoping to have a good view of Tupper Lake but didn’t. About 3.4 miles round trip.

Great little trail to start off snowshoeing in the ADK mountains. Had to break the trail today starting halfway up due to the recent snowfall. Pretty good traction though with the fresh snow. Very little ice to deal with. Sunny today so there was a great view at the top!

Cute hike in the snow. Short n sweet with great view. Did as part of triad on Thanksgiving

Great Thanksgiving hike with my daughter and husband. Really lovely views from the fire tower. Wonderful way to spend a morning. ~ 1 hour round trip + 30 enjoying the views. A little ice and some wet spots, but mostly packed snow.

Nice hike as part of the triad. Did with my hubby on Thanksgiving. Nice snow coverage. Decent view.

Nice hike, a little snow and pretty icy at some points. Beautiful views at the top, the updated outhouse was definitely a bonus!
