Pickerel Pond Trail

The trailhead is simply marked with a small sign; a pull-off for 3-4 vehicles is the best indication of the trailhead, it can be very easy to drive right past. The trail starts along an old woods road on a slight but steady climb before quickly cresting a small hill in a very attractive mixed forest. From here it becomes narrower along a foot trail with a gentle descent to the valley below. The trail swings a bit and meanders through the darker forest before coming to the grassy shore of Pickerel Pond. The Seward Range can be seen over the pond in the distance.

From the intersection of Routes 3 and 86 in Saranac Lake follow Route 3 toward Tupper Lake. Continue on Route 3 to Coreys Road on the left. Follow Coreys Road for just around 3.75 miles to the trailhead on the right.
