    Phil, that area still does not get a lot of use (although a smoking fisherman caused the fishing access ramp at Fishhole Pond to catch fire this Spring). I think the Sable Highlands are probably one of the most interesting, and under-used areas in the Northern Adirondacks. Lots of signs of Moose. I once sat in a duck blind on Fishhole pond, watching two Bald Eagles fish for about an hour. Sorry that you hit a closed gate.
