Pickerel Pond

The trail that leads to Pickerel Pond is located along seasonal dirt Coreys Road in the northwestern section of the High Peaks Wilderness of the Adirondacks. This is a short and really easy, 0.2 mile hike to a small scenic pond in the High Peaks Wilderness. There was a small sign at the trailhead when I hiked this in the summer of 2013. You are following blue DEC plastic discs on this trail.

To find the trailhead take NY 3 east out of Tupper Lake, past Panther Pond. Turn right on Coreys Road. Coreys Road is a popular road for ADK 46ers looking to reach the Seward Mountains as well as for those looking for a FREE roadside camping experience in the Adirondacks. Follow the road past the bridge over Stony Creek, past a rather large parking area that is marked known as the Stony Creek Assembly Area. There is a small parking area for the Rock Pond Trail that you will also pass. There is a small pull off for the Pickerel Pond Trail on the right. The GPS coordinates are N44 11.822 W74 17.752.

Be sure to add Rock Pond to your itinery if you are hiking in this area. Look below for a few pictures and a map of the area.
