Siamese Ponds Wilderness

Central Adirondack Trail, State Rt. 28, near North River in Warren County

The Siamese Ponds Wilderness comprises over 112,000 acres, more than 175 square miles of gentle mountains, lush forests, rushing streams, and sparkling ponds.

In the southeastern quadrant of the Adirondack Park, the SP Wilderness is west of North Creek, south of Indian Lake, and northeast of Speculator. The area is bounded by New York State Route 8 (the area's southeastern boundary); Route 28 (along the area's north end); and Route 30 to the west and south. Major trailheads are located at Thirteenth Lake and at the end of Old Farm Clearing Road, both reached by turning onto the Thirteenth Lake Road from Route 28 in North River; on Route 8 about 4 miles west of Bakers Mills; and at Kings Flow, located south of the Village of Indian Lake at the end of Big Brook Road. Trails also lead into the Wilderness from the east shore of Indian Lake.
