Aldrich Pond Wild Forest

Olympic Byway, County Rt. 3, near Star Lake in St. Lawrence County

The Aldrich Pond Wild Forest trails are located on State Forest Preserve land, primarily on roads that are used for snowmobiles in the Winter.

Aldrich Pond Wild Forest contains 26,702 acres. The main route involves turning west off Route 3, in Lower Oswegatchie, onto the Oswegatchie-Newton Falls Road, then south onto Oswegatchie Trail Road, then roughly southwest onto Coffin Mills Road, through Coffin Mills, to Aldrich. Look for more trail signs indicating Aldrich Pond Wilderness Trail. Another trailhead (to Aldrich Pond and farther to Streeter Lake) is found off Youngs Road, off Route 3 due south of Benson Mines and Star Lake.
