Pigeon Lake Wilderness

Central Adirondack Trail, State Rt. 28, near Eagle Bay in Herkimer County

The Pigeon Lake Wilderness Area is located in the west central Adirondacks in the Towns of Inlet and Long Lake and comprises approximately 50,100 acres.

It is easily accessible to the public from the south, southeast and southwest, but to a lesser extent from the west and north because of posted private lands. The chief attractions for the public are the trout ponds, which entice fishermen as well as campers who frequent scenic spots around Cascade Lake, Queer Lake, Constable Pond, Pigeon Lake and Gull Lake. It is also a popular area for hunters during the big game season.
