Parking is at a small gravel pull off parking area along Route 28 about 2.4 miles southwest of Raquette Lake. The right path leads to the Flow. Left goes 1.7 miles to Eighth Lake canoe carry and lean-to.
There are many interesting birds to watch here, like Black-capped Chickadees, Red-eyed and Blue-headed Vireos, Yellow-rumped Warblers, Red-breasted Nuthatches, and Swainson's Thrush. It's a short 0.6-mile hike down the easy and wide path to the Flow, where a 0.5-mile long raised bridge boardwalk takes paddlers to the water of Browns Tract Flow, which leads out to Raquette Lake.
The small gravel parking area is on Route 28, about 2.4 miles west of Raquette Lake.
1.1 miles to the lake / Mountain bike: easy
This short hike takes less than 2 hours to complete.
The winter parking here is not plowed and the shoulder of Route 28 is not recommended.
