Long Lake Water taxi??

I'm finishing up my 5 yr segmented trip of the NPT. Very disjointed as my co hiker and I could never string more than 1 weekend together over the years. He finished at Tirrell Pond last year. That is where we started. The following year he did 28N to the tip of Long Lake and was (arranged prior to) allowed to exit on Forestry property.

Well, that is the only segment I have left and he is going to accompany me. We were planning on this Friday, hike north, spend the night and hike back down.

Now I have heard it is an easy very scenic...tho busy..hike. Not too thrilled with doing a yo-yo but we cannot get the access he had last time.

Soooo...how would one arrange a boat ride back? I posted this a few years back I think and the bring a 12 pack was the best answer...but I don't want to carry.

Any ideas???

Exit on Forestry property? Who's property? Syracuse ESF? I asked about going in there years ago and was denied access. Maybe something's changed?

He was an employee...but no longer...hence the need for the yo-yo!!

Thanks ColdRiver...that may be the ticket.

Huntington Forest isn't actually owned by SUNY ESF (although ESF does manage and maintain the property). The property is actually privately owned by Syracuse University. It is not open to the public.

We did this when I did the NPT with my kids a few years ago. We used Long Lake Boat Tours who took us right to Plumley Point. It is the same people that run the little food stand next to the town beach. It was reasonably priced as a remember and I think he was willing to assist with shuttling, although we did not need this and I can't recall for certain. His phone number is 518-624-3911
