Panther Mountain, also known as Echo Cliff, is a short 0.6-mile steep climb to a wide open cliff that provides an extraordinary view of the southern Adirondacks. Panther Mountain/Echo Cliff 0.6 miles (1.2 miles round trip) Arietta, Hamilton County Southern Adirondacks, on Piseco Lake Hiking, Snowshoeing A local favorite due to its short distance and rewarding view, this trail is heavily used. The trail up is particularly eroded, with myriad loose stones of varying sizes, and exposed bedrock in many areas. The trail begins through beech-heavy mixed hardwood forest and slowly gains conifers as elevation increases. However, due to its relatively low elevation the summit does not harbor a holdout of true boreal forest as other higher Adirondack peaks do. There are many large rocks along the trail.

Porady dla podróżnych

Poruszanie się po okolicy

You will need to drive on dirt/gravel roads for a few miles

Don't worry- I do it every day- roads are in great shape (perhaps not the seasonal road that the DEC beach is on) but this can be avoided. They are well maintained in the winter too.
Jak zaoszczędzić

Bring your groceries.

There are small quick stop markets nearby- but you may want to do the bulk of your grocery shopping on the way.
Zwyczaje i kultura

Soaring Eagle is located in a private "association" area.

Please stay on the roads and explore the 20+ acres on Soaring Eagle property. There is much other private land in the area - just respect the neighbors private land and do not explore their land. You can walk along the lake shore and collect driftwood with no limit!
Nie przegap

Sunsets

The sunsets are magnificent from the home you can also sit on the ski chair and enjoy the view.
Poruszanie się po okolicy

Bring your snowmobiles, mountain bikes, and 4 wheelers

Four wheelers are seen on local roads, you will need to check the regulation of this! A main snowmobile trail is very close- just ride to it and have access to miles and miles! see the link: http://www.ohioridgeriders.com/site/assets/files/1026/orrc_map.pdf The Ohio Ridge Rider snowmobile trails connect to thousands of miles of other trails.
Zwyczaje i kultura

Soaring Eagle is extremely private.

Neighbors are not near the home- it seems you have the entire forest and lake to yourself! There is no traffic to worry about. It is the most private Airbnb on the lake in the area!
Co spakować

Pack n play available

Please let owner know if you need a pack and play for children. It will be available if requested.
Co spakować

Dry fire wood

There is a large outside fire pit that usually has covered wood to burn. But if you want to guarantee it is completely dry wood- you may want to bring your own. Please do not use the stacked fire wood under the deck area- that is for the owners use in basement wood stove. The woods have plenty of wood to gather too!
