The short 0.3 mile hiking trail to Sprague Pond is located in the Blue Ridge Wilderness, which is located in the Central Adirondacks, southwest of the hamlet of Indian Lake off NY 28/30 on Cedar River Road. This short 0.3 mile hike to Sprague Pond is a great short, easy hike to a beautiful, scenic pond. Don't miss taking this short hike if your in the Indian Lake area of the Adirondacks. This is a popular fishing spot.

The start of the trail is off Cedar River Road and is not marked, making it somewhat easy to pass by. There is a yellow gate at the start of the trail as well as a wide shoulder along Cedar River Road across from the gate. The GPS coordinates are N43 47.459 W74 22.913 for those who have a GPS devise. The trail is not marked, but is well worn and easy to follow. After 0.1 mile there is a fork in the trail. To the left leads about 100 feet to a fish barrier dam and the main trail to Sprague Pond goes right.

At 0.3 miles reach the scenic shore of Sprague Pond. There are rocks on the shore, creating a perfect picnic spot. This large pond is completely within the Blue Ridge Wilderness, so there is no sign of civilization in your view. This is actually a surprising wilderness view for such a short walk from the road. Look below for a picture and a couple of maps to help you plan your hiking adventure to Sprague Pond.
