Lows Lake is one of the prettiest lakes in the Adirondacks. It has the second largest Common Loon population of any single lake in New York State with eight nesting pairs.
The bog area, bordered by Hitchins Pond has boreal species. Thrushes and woodland warblers can be found along the river. Bald Eagles have nested on Lows Lake; they might be seen anywhere along the trip. Several species of ducks, Osprey, and Great Blue Heron might also be seen. Check the floating bog mats in late summer for migrant shorebirds. At night, Common Loons and Barred Owls call to each other and nearby campers.
