This route features ponds, brooks, and the opportunity to explore the abundant nature around Flowed Land. A visit to the historic Henderson Monument will complete this full day of hiking that is not quite the workout a mountain climb offers. A great outing in the High Peaks Wilderness!
Take Exit 29 from I-87 and turn west onto Blue Ridge Road (CR 84). Follow this route for 17.4 miles to an intersection with multiple signs. Turn right on Tahawus Road (CR 25). At 6.3 miles further, turn left off Lower Works Rd at street sign marked Upper Works Rd. At 9.9 miles the end of the road is the trailhead.
From the parking area at Upper Works, the trail starts mostly flat, but starts its climb to Flowed Lands after a junction at 1.6 miles. Flowed Lands, reached at 4.5 miles offers amazing views through the valley past Mount Colden.
