Solo: 3 Ponds, Hell Devil, Silver Lake?

I am thinking of doing a solo trip to 3 Ponds, down to Hell Devil Dam and over to Silver Lake, returning on the NLP. I did this trip years and years ago in the winter, heading NW from the "4th" pond, through the head waters of the NBWR, over Silver Lake Mountain. I'm afraid that route would be too "wet" in the summer. Anyone have any thoughts?

What is the NBWR?
I bushwhacked to Hell Devil Dam last spring via the 4th Pond notch. I can't comment on anything beyond the old dam site, but there wasn't anything too wet up to that point.
Sounds like a fun trip, love exploring the Silver Lake Wilderness!

my bad.....WBSR....West Branch Sacandaga River. Another look at the map and I'm incline to just head west from the 4th pond.
I'm not too sure how fast I will be traveling and might need to take the shortest route.

Gotcha.
Well the meadow near the Hell Devil Dam site is really pretty, with a nice (unofficial) campsite near the outlet. The 3 Ponds are really nice also, but the woods are pretty thick along their shorelines. Good luck, I'd be interested in hearing how you made out.
