Big Alderbed Lake is a somewhat tough hike with a trailhead off the Powley-Piseco Road located 10.9 miles north of NY 29A just south of the Powley Place Bridge over the West Branch of East Canada Creek. It's a moderate round trip hike of almost six miles that includes challenging stream crossings and some wet sections. The trail follows an old logging road and is marked as a snowmobile trail.

The best time to make this hike is during times of dry weather.  It's a pleasant long walk along the old road and takes you to the beautiful Big Alderbed Lake as well as a pretty outlet stream, which is actually the start of the West Branch of East Canada Creek. This hike is not for hikers who get frustrated by many wet sections and tricky stream crossings. The crossing of the swift moving outlet stream of Big Alderbed Lake can be difficult.

After crossing the outlet, the trail again becomes difficult to follow. If you can determine the trail it will take you to a grassy camping area on the shore of scenic Big Alderbed Lake. For more information on this hike we suggest purchasing the Adirondack Central Trails Map Pack from the Adirondack Mountain Club.
