As you peer down the nearly thousand-foot drop into Lower Ausable Lake from Indian Head or Fish Hawk Cliffs, you’d be forgiven a flight of fancy that you are on the Norwegian coast, so sheer are the mountains, so deep the lake. Not only will you bag several 46ers (Adirondack peaks above 4,000 feet) along this route, but you’ll also enjoy scenery of unsurpassed variety. If this is your first trip to the Adirondacks, you’re likely to come away so thoroughly infatuated with this beautiful and challenging wilderness that you’ll soon be plotting your next visit.
