Dave West atop Low's Ridge
Dave West atop Low's Ridge

A perch overlooking the Adirondacks

Listen to this story
Today's Heard Up North comes from Low's Ridge, a granite monolith overlooking the most jagged terrain of the Adirondacks.

It's not hard to reach. Dave West drove just a few minutes from his home in Long Lake and, just before reaching Tupper Lake, turned toward the Bog River Flow. It's about an hour's paddle through the wilderness to Hitchens Pond and the trailhead to the ridge.

Then, a mile-long hike to the top and a view unlike any other.
