Adirondack Blue Mt. Lake backpacking
08/18/2018 Region: New York Activity Type: Backpacking Place: Blue Mountain Lake, NY
Backpacking loop from Rock Pond to Cascade Pond to Stephens Pond to Tirrell Pond (which has a white sand beach) and back to the cars. There are 4 lean-to shelters along this loop. Limit of 9 backpackers without getting a permit from the Ranger. This will be a 2 day/1night backpacking trip with mostly flat terrain.
It is about a 16 mile loop with easy/moderate terrain. I am open to other mid-summer event dates. Parking is available at the trailhead.
I would be interested in joining.
Yes I am interested in this.
That is a picture of the white sand beach at the north end of Tirrell Pond in my profile. The water is crystal clear and it is a special trout fishing area, great swimming too! There are 2 lean-to shelters at Tirrell Pond and plenty of tenting areas as well.
