My original plan was to complete the 4-3-2-1 Way (Indian Lake) Challenge this week. It seemed simple enough 4 easy hikes, 3 moderate, 2 difficult and then either Snowy or Blue Mountain. But the more I thought that one through the more I realized that it would be unlikely that I’d be able to do all 10.
We did this on our way back from the Wild Center in Tupper Lake on Monday. It’s a very short hike, most places that list it don’t even give it mileage. We clocked about 0.21 miles total while we were there.
Today, we were only 1 of 3 groups there. The water was gushing and would probably not be the safest time to swim.
Above the falls, the water was slightly calmer and a great spot for fishing. At least, I assume so, since there were a group of people fishing in this area. We spent a good 15 minutes just watching and listening to the water in this area. I would have loved to have stayed longer, and wished I had thought to bring my hammock and kindle!
