Hitchins Pond-Lows Lake Dam
(4.4 miles RT, easy) This is a relaxing walk on a dirt road that passes beside a vast bog and wetland. At Lows Lake Dam you'll find the remains of the turn-of-the-century Augustus Low complex. Low was an enterprising man who had an extensive lumbering operation, sold bottled "spring" water to city markets and made barrels, wine, maple syrup, jam and jelly. The dams were used to generate electricity and he built his own railroad station and post office at Horseshoe Lake.
