Hiking in Adirondack Park
Hammond Pond Wild Forest
A view of Lincoln Pond from an overlook is the feature of this hike located in Hammond Pond Wild Forest in the East Central Adirondacks. The hike features an unmarked trail and a bit of a bushwhack to an unnamed hill with open ledges just west of I-87 that starts from near the Lincoln Pond State Campground. There are views of Lincoln Pond from one ledge as well as views of Bald Peak, Rocky Peak Ridge and Giant Mountain from another ledge.
The unmarked trail is an abandoned woods road found 0.2 miles north of Lincoln Pond State Campground along County Route 7. The GPS coordinates are N44 08.594 W73 34.794 for those who have a GPS devise. The old road is directly across the street from a campground road that leads to two outer campsites.
