A steep short climb to the top of a beautiful exposed ridge.

Description

From Low's Upper Dam, turn right and climb past the old foundations of A.A. Low's Manor. The trail becomes narrow and climbs steeply through a forested area mixed with ferns and small grassy clearings. After less than a mile, you'll come out on Low's Ridge - an exposed stone outcrop that has great views over Low's Lake, Hitchins Pond, and the Adirondacks.
