Ascent Trip Report

In Eagle Bay, Ledge Road is a neighborhood road with nearby houses, property right alongside the trail’s start up to Eagle Cliff. Geocaching’s Eagle Cliff Cloud Splitter (GC6Q39W) by CloudSplitter 4T6R says to “use your best behavior (to)stay on the left hand side and by the split fence notice the white and blue hand-painted Eagle Cliff sign (to then) follow the trail to (a) little piece of Adirondack heaven located just beyond camp.” This short hike reaches a climbing ridgeline with expansive views right over and above Rte 28, Eagle Bay and Fourth Lake with my enjoying a cool, clearing, sunny day to peakbag & geocache (completing two summit lists, off to Stillwater Mtn after Goodman Mtn earlier in the AM).
