Cowhorn Junction Trail

 Cowhorn Junction Trail

This 2-mile, yellow-marked trail travels westerly to Sand Hill Junction. Once past a fisherman's path to Bassout Pond on the left, take a short walk off the trail, on the shore of Cat Mountain Pond, to a campsite on the right. At just over a mile, a trail junction is reached. Turn left (west) to continue to Sand Hill Junction or turn right (east) and ascend Cat Mountain for an excellent side trip. The trail continues past Glasby Pond, through an often-used campsite next to the pond, to Sand Hill Junction in another 0.9 miles. At the Sand Hill Junction the CL50 turns left/southwest and begins the “High Falls Loop.” Note that one may turn right here, especially in an emergency, to reach the Janacks Landing lean-to on the lake (1+ miles), and/or to continue on the red-marked Dead Creek Flow trail to Wanakena. A new trail runs from Cowhorn Junction south to Big Deer pond that is part way on the Lows Lake canoe carry to the Oswegotchie. To access the trail from Lows, paddle to the Western edge of Lows and start the canoe carry to the Oswegatchie. Rather than putting back in at Big Deer, hike to the right along the Northern edge of the pond. You will see the Red marked trail that is 2.2 miles from Cowhorn. Email if you need aditional details.
