Long Lake

Long Lake is a very long, relatively narrow lake in the central Adirondacks, about 10 miles north of Blue Mt. Lake. In reality, it is nothing more than a long widening of the Raquette River, which accounts for how shallow the lake is, despite the fact that it is surrounded by mountains. A fair amount of the shoreline is developed, but much retains its wilderness atmosphere. The 133-mile Northville-Lake Placid Trail runs along the eastern shore of the lake, and there are many lean-tos along the trail. The photo here is from Kelly's Point, a pair of lean-tos beautifully situated on a rocky point on the lake.
