The trail that leads to Rock Pond is located off seasonal dirt Coreys Road in the northwestern section of the High Peaks Wilderness of the Adirondacks. This is a short, pretty easy, 0.5 mile hike to a scenic pond in the High Peaks Wilderness. I do not recall seeing a sign for the trailhead when I hiked this in the summer of 2013. We have been told there is a sign there now. You are following yellow 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 that can be easily overlooked near the start of the Rock Pond Trail. The GPS coordinates are N44 11.739 W74 18.304.

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