Hiking in Adirondack Park
Aldrich Pond Wild Forest
Streeter Lake is located in the 26,702 acre Aldrich Pond Wild Forest of the NW Adirondacks. A short 0.5 mile hike takes you to a popular lean to and the shore of the lake. This is a great starter backpacking trip for novices or just a great day trip for a picnic. Don't expect to have solitude during the summer and on weekends for this destination at a beautiful Adirondack lake.
The start of this hike is at the end of Streeter Lake Road, which is a seasonal dirt road located off Coffin Mills Road in the small hamlet of Aldrich. There is a DEC sign for Aldrich Pond Wild Forest that marks the start of the gated road. The GPS coordinates of the start of the trail to Streeter Lake is N44 06.733 W75 04.265. The GPS coordinates of the start of the seasonal dirt road off Coffin Mills Road is N44 08.883 W75 06.533 to help you find the road. The road seems to be good for all vehicles, but you should still take care for low clearance cars.
From the parking area, cross the bridge over Streeter Lake Outlet. This is a kayak put in point, so you might see kayakers in the area. Go around the gate and follow the dirt road going up hill. In a short time you will reach a junction where the dirt road goes left and a wide trail goes right (straight). Take the right fork for the quickest route to the lean to. The trail goes through scrub land and in no time you will reach a clearing. Here the dirt road comes back into view on your left. Soon you'll see the lean to and a big grassy area on your right. Turn right to reach the lean to, which features a picnic table, privy and fire pit. There is trails that lead down to the lake.
