Otter Brook Trailhead Indian Lake NY,
New York, Adirondacks,
A three night backpacking trip to the West Canada Lake Wilderness region. Arrival time on Friday is flexible, we will car camp near the Otter Brook trailhead. Saturday will be 6.0 miles on the Otter Brook Trail with an additional 2.6 miles on the Lost Pond Trail for a total of 8.6 for the day where we will set up for the night at one of the camping sites around Cedar Lakes. Sunday will be 5.8 miles on the N-P trail with 2.5 miles further on the Brooktrout Lake Trail for a total of 8.3 for the day where we will set up for the night. Monday would be 5.9 miles to the Brooktrout Lake Trailhead. Total close to 23 miles roundtrip. The elevation gain is minimal and the route is very picturesque. The trip, however, would be moderately difficult (rating 2C23) involving hiking along an old woods road in poor condition with a couple of potentially difficult stream crossings depending on rainfall. This trip is suitable for those with some previous backpacking experience in good physical condition.
