The Gull Pond Trail is located along Adirondack Road on the western boundary of the Pharaoh Lake Wilderness. It is a short 0.5 mile hike along this yellow marked trail to the Gull Pond. The pond is stocked with trout and is a popular fishing destination. It is also a wonderful walk in the woods to a small scenic pond.

The well used trail is easy to follow. There are some wet spots along the trail. A side trail on the left a short distance from the pond leads to designated campsites. There is no camping allowed at the rock outcrop overlooking the pond. You can bushwhack around the small pond and even climb the rock cliff across the pond. There is a great view of the whole pond from the top of the rock cliff.

Directions:  The trailhead is located along Adirondack Road, 1.7 miles south of Alder Meadow Road. Take I-87 to EXIT 28. Turn right on US 9 South and in a short distance turn left on Alder Meadow Road, then right on Adirondack Road. There is a small parking area located on the left. You will see a DEC trail sign at the parking area entrance.
