The Foxy Brown Trail, named after Adirondack hermit Foxy Brown, is a multi-use 5.6-mile loop located within the Jessup River Wild Forest. Foxy Brown worked in logging around Lake Pleasant and Speculator before building himself a small log cabin in the backcountry outside of Piseco. The trail runs along the Piseco Airport runway before routing users through hardwood forest with patches of spruce-fir forest and meadow-shrub swamp mixed in. On a recent sunny day, Evan made his way to Piseco to scope out the trail system. With fresh snow on the ground, the path under foot wound through beautifully-coated forest and drew near to Fall Stream at around the halfway point.
Remember to Leave No Trace! Buy a physical map, read it, plan, and prepare. Think about the NYS Rangers and medical personnel that exhaust themselves for a rescue that could have been avoided. Pack out your trash. Use a bear canister when primitive camping and cook away from where you’re sleeping. Do the rock walk to help reduce the impact on fragile alpine vegetation. Camp at designated campsites and never camp on or near summits.
