This hike is only accessible by boat from Big Moose Lake.
How to get there
From the intersection of Route 28 and Big Moose Road in Inlet follow Big Moose Road. Continue to Higby Road on the right and follow here to the car-top boating access.
This 1.2 mile trail will access you to two very attractive back-country ponds—Upper and Lower Gull Lakes. The trail is very moderate with only a small amount of elevation change. However, beavers are very active especially around Lower Gull Lake. It may be that the trail could be underwater in spots and Upper Gull Lake becomes inaccessible. But generally it's in decent condition. There is a nice lean-to on Upper Gull Lake. Please see the page for Big Moose Lake for additional details on the paddle portion of this trip.
