Between Blue Mountain Lake and Indian Lake. Turn off Route 28/30 onto Durant road. After 1/4 Mile turn left onto the dirt road just before the cemetery. Around 500ft there is a pull off on the right where the trail head is.

We really enjoyed this hike! It was a good distance with not a ton of elevation change. Make sure you block out time to enjoy sitting at the lake shores, but bring your bug spray! There is an opportunity to continue on a trail past Steven's Pond, but we turned around there which made it an accurate 8 mi hike.

Wet and black flies but worth every step.
1 hr 45 mns to Cascade Pond with 2 dogs and 2 rests of 4 mns each. Beautiful Loons on pond.
