How to get there
From exit 28 in Schroon Lake follow I-87 north for one exit to the North Hudson exit, #29. From here follow Boreas Road west toward Newcomb. Continue all the way to Newcomb and Route 28N. Take a left onto 28N and continue for just under 6.75-miles to the trail on the right.
This is the southern approach to Hewitt Eddy and is a mellow and lovely 0.8 mile hike. Only a very small rise over a hogback will be in front of you. A trail continues past the eddy and becomes what is known as the Boreas River Trail. With two cars or a 0.75 mile road walk you could use both trails for an extended hike.
