Hiking in Lewis County
Located within the 23,816 acre Pepperbox Wilderness is Sand Pond. A short 0.15 mile trail that is handicap accessible travels to the pond, which is the largest body of water in this wilderness. The pond is located in the northwestern Adirondacks in Lewis County, which is the only part of the Pepperbox Wilderness that is located in the county. This is a very easy hike to a scenic destination. The only draw back is that it is located in the middle of nowhere. Don't let that deter you as the dirt roads that travel to the trailhead are in good shape.
The trailhead is located along Fish Creek Road, where there is a small pull off parking area. The GPS coordinates are N43 56.926 W75 09.955. The trail is wide with crushed stone and two long wooden boardwalks that take you over wet areas. The wood was extremely slippery when I went to GPS the trail in late September 2016. Take extra care as you walk along the slippery boardwalk.
We suggest looking at a good GPS devise such as Garmin eTrex 20 Worldwide Handheld GPS Navigator or a compass to help keep you on the right track. You can find more information on this wilderness from the NY DEC website. Look below for a few pictures, map and video of this hike.
