Gull Lakes

Gull Lakes


This 1.2 mile trail will access you to two very attractive back-country ponds—Upper and Lower Gull Lakes. The trail is very moderate with only a small amount of elevation change.

This hike is only accessible by boat from Big Moose Lake

How to get there

From the intersection of Route 28 and Big Moose Road in Inlet follow Big Moose Road. Continue to Higby Road on the right and follow here to the car-top boating access.

Trail Description

This area has active beavers, especially around Lower Gull Lake. It may be that the trail could be underwater in spots and Upper Gull Lake becomes inaccessible. But generally it's in decent condition.


To reach the trailhead, first paddle Big Moose Lake.


There is a nice lean-to on Upper Gull Lake.
