This is kinda off topic but.....I hate snakes. When I was a little kid we use to catch them and keep them for a while then let them go. Well one day a friend caught one and put the snake down the back of my shirt. The snake slithered down into my jeans and out my pantleg. Ever since I HATE SNAKES....lol

I cannot wait to get into Duck Hole. I have seen your pics Gary and they are beautiful!

Thanks for the comliment on the pics.
The snakes are only garder snakes. they don't get big, and they're not aggresive...You just have to take the bad with the good. It's worth the view!

I just suck it up, and take it like a man!

I only have time for a day trip. Will I be able to do more than Henderson? I plan to park at the Lower Works. Are the trails to Henderson marked? How about the portage? We have a 16' Royalex Old Town ar we going to have a problem with the carrys?

I haven't paddled around there, but here's the trip report from an adkforum group that did recently:

I'm sure all of them will be by shortly to answer specific questions you might have.

I think you mean the Upper Works! Henderson is easy to get to, just take the trail to the left after you cross the wooden footbridge.

The first portage from Henderson to Upper Preston Pond is the worst. it's about a mile and a half, over a rocky trail with a 450' ascent. The other two portages are short and fairly level but brushy.

I don't really recommend it for a day trip. Henderson is nice to spend the day on. Beautiful view of Indian Pass and wallface.

I'll try to send you a map of the route and the portages via the email here.
