South Pond

Adirondack Trail, State Rt. 30, near Long Lake in Hamilton County

A body of water roughly south of Long Lake and close to Routes 28N and 30.

South Pond is mostly surrounded by State land. You must, however, be careful not to trespass on the tracts of private property that border the lake. To reach South Pond, travel south on Route 28N-30 toward Blue Mountain Lake. There is a paved parking area on the right side of the road. You can see the lake from that point. There is a very limited amount of State land between the road and lake. You can canoe or boat across the lake to reach the west shore which is primarily State land.
