Sixth Lake at the Sixth Lake Dam

Central Adirondack Trail, State Rt. 28, near Inlet in Hamilton County

The sixth of the eight lakes in the Fulton Chain, heading west to east.

The Sixth Lake Dam is located just north of downtown Inlet on the Sixth
Lake Road. Canoe and kayak access here to Sixth Lake and under the County Route 13 bridge into Seventh Lake. Sixth Lake Dam is of earthen construction with a height of 16 feet with a length of 335 feet. The dam seems to be the haunt of Rainbow Trout at certain times of the year. This dam offers a nice spot for fishing of any type, with room for many anglers. This resource is in Section 1 of the Northern Forest Canoe Trail, a 740-mile water route extending from Old Forge in the Adirondack Park to Fort Kent, Maine.
