Owls Head Mountain

Long Lake, New York

Owls Head Mountain Professional Review and Guide

"On the boundary of the West-Central and Northern sections of the Adirondacks is the scenic peak Owls Head. By climbing the accessible fire tower on the summit, you have a 360-degree view of the surrounding hills and lakes. The remains of an old observer cabin add historical interest.

The trailhead and register are located on the left side of the small parking pullout. The parking area is located on a curve along Endion Lane and may accommodate a dozen cars if visitors park thoughtfully. The trail, marked with red disks, immediately begins to ascend amid a dense maple-and-beech hardwood forest."
