Saranac River to Moose Pond Trail

From the parking area on state Route 3 between Saranac Lake and Bloomingdale, this easy hiking trail goes 1.1 miles to the south end of Moose Pond. From the parking area, the trail crosses the Saranac River on a metal bridge before the trail register. From there, it follows an old access road with very easy grades and minimal elevation change.

At about the 1-mile mark, the old road continues straight to the site of a former lodge (long gone, though the chimney remains). Bear right at the split to reach a rock outcrop and the shore of the pond about 0.1 miles later. From the rock outcrop, there are views of Whiteface Mountain and the McKenzie Mountain Range.
