Ross, Big Bad Luck &
Whortleberry Pond


The trails to Ross Pond, Big Bad Luck Pond and Whortleberry Pond plus OK Slip Falls all share the same trailhead located off NY 28 about 7.2 miles east of the NY 30 junction in Indian Lake.  All three ponds are close enough to create a nice day hike to visit each of the ponds.  The Whortleberry Pond is the northern most and furthest pond at 3.1 miles from the trailhead.  There is a small parking area 0.2 mile east of the trailhead just off NY 28. The GPS coordinates for the parking area is N43 46.296 W74 07.849.

A visit to each of the three ponds and back to your vehicle will be a moderate hike of over eight miles.
