You do have to cross Long Lake to reach the trail to Sabattis.

I've heard that Long Lake's ice is extremely sketchy due to wildly fluctuating water levels and temperature, and yes...sleds falling through the ice. Don't know Long Lake well enough to give you an educated guess on ice conditions, but the Raquette River flowing through that lake can easily make areas of thin ice.

Doesn't sound like something I'd be in a hurry to try...

This has been a strange year weather-wise with warm temperatures and lots of rain. The rain has caused all the streams to run longer and erode the trails and these streams flow into the rivers causing the same effect. Wherever there is a channel like near the bridge in Long Lake where the sleds went through you will have thin ice. Where the rivers come into the lake you will have thin ice. I rode the ice from the Newcomb trail toward Sabattis on Friday and it was fine. I wouldn't ride any lake I'm not familiar with, I would be leery of Indian Lake and any other lake I don't know that well.

Came from IL to Long Lake last night, we got on LL north end for short section and then took the road to the ADK hotel. then got south end of LL and took that to the power line trail to north point road to Raqutte Lake. near where you get off Long Lake to power lines was slushy.

We Parked at the Dec. Long Lake boat launch. Rode the road over the bridge to Knickerville Road. Didnt chance going on the lake. Saw a few people cross. Rode up to thristy moose and north a bit. Was going to go up to Little Blue but it was snowing heavy so we headed down a believe Grasse River Bed back to the Tracks. Tracks were the only bad part of the trip. did about 100 miles. did over 425 miles thurs-Sun.
