The trail to the Lost Lookout can be the same as the West River trail to Beaver Meadow Falls. (see East/West River Trails – AMR) You can continue over the high point to a view of Rainbow falls through some trees and then down to the Lower Ausable Lake at its dam. The Lake road may be utilized for an easy walk out.
So many trails lead to many of the big mountains in this area that one forgets that sometimes the less traveled trails offer more surprises and greater rewards.
Note: For a more complete description of the trail and regulations concerning hiking on the Adirondack Mountain Reserve property, please see ADK’s guide Adirondack Mountain Club High Peaks Trails.
This trail can also be found on ADK’s Trails of the Adirondack High Peaks Map.
