From Potsdam, at the intersection of RT 11 and Clarkson Ave (County Route 59), drive south for 2.5 miles. The dirt access road to the northern parking lot is on the left just past Sweeney Road.

Sat, Feb 11: Snowshoe Catamount Mountain (South Colton) This small mountain offers a nice overlook of the Carry Falls Reservoir. Depending on conditions, we can hike or snowshoe. The first mile is a gradual climb, and then gets pretty steep for the last ½ mile. Colton Winterfest will be in full swing, so we have the option to visit Catamount Lodge afterwards for refreshments and to see the quilt show. 3-4 miles RT, 330 ft elevation gain. Level 2, slow pace.
