|This page is no longer being updated. For an updated and expanded version of this material, see: Adirondack Hiking Trails: Long Pond Trail|
Pick up this scenic half-mile backcountry hiking trail from the Black Pond Trail or the Jenkins Mountain Trail. Long Pond, like its neighbor Black Pond, is managed for native heritage brook trout by the Department of Environmental Conservation, Paul Smith's College, and the Adirondack Park Agency.
The southern terminus of the Long Pond Trail begins at the northern tip of Black Pond, near the dam. The trail skirts Long Pond, providing lovely views of this small pond, then passes a lean-to before ending at the Jenkins Mountain Trail. The trail is narrow and rough in places. Hiking boots are recommended.
In the winter, this trail becomes a snowshoe trail. Follow the green markers.
