Sister Lakes

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.

Trail Description

This trail is a bit longer but accesses some wonderful and seldom visited back-country ponds. At 0.2 miles from the Big Moose Lake you will come to a side trail on your left that leads to Andy's Creek Lean-to. This short trail has an older bridge over it, but is planned for a rebuild. The trail that leads to Sister Lakes is very flat and remains in a low lying area, which can be very wet at times, but generally not an issue. Only a slight climb part way along the trail will give you a significant elevation change. There are two lean-tos on the Sister Lakes. Please see the page for Big Moose Lake for additional details on the paddle portion of this trip.
