"He's looking for a lean-to that he can canoe to, while the rest of his group hikes to it."

DSettahr - Thanks for posting that. I've been gone for a bit so didn't see the need for a reply until you took care of it!

That's all for now. Take care and until next time...be well.

There are several leantos on Taylor Pond that are accessible by water.
Tent campsites are available at the narrows and near the campsite head quarters.

The trail to the Taylor Pond leanto on the east side below Catamount can be very, very wet, like knee deep for hundreds [yes hundreds] of yards unless something changed in the last four or five years when I went back there just past the leanto to examine a dead young moose that lay on the trail.
That was in the spring time. The DEC was there also taking samples of skin etc, from the moose but they crossed the pond in a small motor boat.

Wow, when I hunted there in the 80s there were guys driving to the lean-to on the south shore.

In the fall maybe its possible and summer maybe its a nice hike again but probably muddy. Would be a nice snowshoe trip in winter and there use to be a trail up to the summit of Catamount from near the lean-to but spring, after the melt, unless there has been some work done on it, bring waders LOL.
It appeared the trail, which is atv wide, may have just kind of eroded to a level which is lower than much of the shoreline. I didn't see beaver sign causing it.
Maybe later this year I can get back there and check it out. Its only twenty minutes from where I normally camp.
