Indian Carry to Stoney Creek Pond Trail

This trail is part of the Northern Forest Canoe Trail (Adirondack Passage) but gets used on a regular basis as a short hiking trail to an attractive Pond.

Trailhead
From the intersection of Routes 3 and 86 in Saranac Lake follow Route 3 toward Tupper Lake. Continue on Route 3 for just under 13-miles to the trail on the left; parking is on the right, near Indian Carry Road. The trail is directly across the road, no trail sign marks this.

Description:
From the trailhead parking, carefully cross the road and cross over a small bridge and enter the woods. The trail is very moderate over small rolling hills. The final hill before the pond is the largest, but still not very large. A short descent will bring you to the shore of Stoney Creek Pond. The pond is very scenic and placid and makes for an decent spot for a picnic.

Distances: 0.6 miles, one way
Family with Young Kids: 45 minutes to pond
Experienced Hiker: 30 minutes to pond
Out of Shape Hiker: 30 minutes to pond

Winter Climbing: This makes for an excellent snowshoe trail, especially for young children and those who have never snowshoed before.
