Owls Head Mountain and Fire Tower

Adirondack Trail, State Rt. 30, near Long Lake in Hamilton County

This Owl's Head is a relatively short, easy 3 mile climb with pleasant views of Long Lake village and lake to the west, and the central Adirondack Region.

The first half of this hike is mostly level but then it is a steep scramble to the top where there are excellent views. Blowdown damage is visible from both the trail and summit.
