Map: Ferris Lake

Map: Ferris Lake

Ferris Lake, despite being the name sake of this region, is actually one of the more challenging lakes to get back to. Not due to the terrain as much as the lake is surrounded by small streams and wetlands, and the best access to the lake is posted via the old road. The DEC has said they will eventually build a trail out to this lake in the Unit Management Plan, which has yet to be approved.

Good morning! Currently 34 degrees and clear in Marienville. While it has finally gotten light out, I doubt I will see the sun until 8 AM despite being in an open field on a hill. Sun rises late here. Beautiful morning though.

I need to get changed finish taking down the campsite and then it’s off to West Virginia!

They always talk about dark sky country in Pennsylvania. Here in a remote portion of the Allegheny National Forest, 15 miles southeast of Marienville the stars are amazing. I stuck my head out of the truck and was awestruck by the stars this morning. A little light pollution towards Kane but otherwise very dark. Much darker than the Adirondacks.
