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.
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.
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.
