Hikers who wish to explore Christian Lake, located near the Powley-Piseco Road, normally take a herd path that is at times blocked by downed trees and pretty hard to follow. The toughest part is finding the start of the obvious herd path from Powley-Piseco Road. The start of the trail follows a seasonal stream from the dirt road about 0.6 miles south of the Clockmill Pond Trail.

You will see no path at first as you steeply climb along a seasonal stream in between West Notch Mountain. You will quickly climb over the first 0.1 miles before leveling off. There are cliffs and rock ledges on both sides of you as you are hiking. Soon you should find the herd path before you begin descending toward the lake.

The path at times can be faint and hard to follow. There are a few blazes here and there as you head toward the lake.  It's a real good idea that you do have a GPS, map and compass for this hike (as well as all hikes). This bushwhack to the lake is about 0.6 miles and should only be attempted by those who feel comfortable using a map/compass and/or GPS.  You are in a rugged, remote wilderness location that is located on a mostly unmarked, sometimes hard to follow faint herd path. Use your judgment.

For those who make the journey to Christian Lake are rewarded with a scenic little lake in a remote area that not to many folks venture to.  It's one of those 'secret' places in the Adirondacks.
