Hiking in Adirondack Park
Moose River Plains Wild Forest
The Arnold's Rock Trail was constructed during the summer of 2011 as a connector to the Uncas Trail and the Seventh Lake Trail. When we explored this new trail in August of 2011, the trail still had orange flags marking the path. We are unsure of what color discs the DEC will use.
To reach the Arnolds Rock Trail you can either hike to the eastern end of the Seventh Lake Trail at Arnold's Rock to reach the start of the Arnold's Rock Trail on the northern shore of Seventh Lake. Or you can hike along the Uncas Trail for 0.9 miles from Eighth Lake Campground to reach the other end of the Arnold's Rock Trail.
The trail was professionally built and has gentle grades as it makes its way from the Uncas Trail toward the Seventh Lake shoreline and the mammoth Arnold's Rock. Arnold's Rock make for a great picnic destination for hikers and you'll see informal campsites in the area. Further west along the Seventh Lake Trail are two lean to's.
Look below for some pictures, a video of the trail and a trail map of Arnold's Rock Trail. Arnold's Rock Trail is 0.9 miles long, creating a 1.8 mile one way hike from Eighth Lake Campground via the Uncas Trail to Arnold's Rock.
