After crossing the footbridge over the Saranac River, the trail swings right, climbs ever so gently, and is then mostly flat to a junction at 1.4 miles from the bridge. The trail right leads down about 200 yards to the shore of the pond at a rocky outcropping that provides a great view of the pond.
Trailhead: From the intersection of Routes 3 and 86 in Saranac Lake, follow Route 3 north toward Bloomingdale. Go about 4 miles and look for a small dirt road that passes closely by a farmhouse and down to a parking area before the footbridge. There is no trail sign at Route 3.
