I went north to hike Moreau Lake State Park in the Adirondack foothills after work today. There are an abundance of trails throughout the park, with the most popular day use areas and trails surrounding the lake. Today I would be hiking the more rugged and longer trails on the north side of the park along the Palmertown Range. A small access road off of Spier Falls Road leads to a parking lot in the woods and a couple of trailheads. I chose to begin my hike by ascending the green blazed Baker Trail, which climbs steadily for about one mile up to the Ridge Run Trail.
