Bog River & the overlook

This is my all-time favorite trek in the Adirondacks. The paddle is along the Bog River (Piercefield) from Low's lower dam to the upper. From Hitchens Pond, we hiked to the overlook which gives amazing views of the Bog River basin, the High Peaks and the Horseshoe Lake wild forest. On the paddle out, we spotted a nice bull moose along the water's edge. The leaves are not quite peaked yet, but probably will be within the next week or so. The trips total mileage is about 8.5 miles (boat & boots combined).
