Definitely, extremely buggy. Be prepared for that. The bridge, the lean to and the pond are nice touches. Look out for the dozens of orange “salamanders” underfoot. We saw a couple of frogs too.

Super buggy. The trail is great underfoot — soft pack and pine needles everywhere. Once you get to the lean-to and lake lookout, it's spectacular. Highly recommend.

Easy to follow trail. But bring lots of bug spray. Some major blowdown to navigate around in a spot on the trail. Other than that great hike and the reward at the end is beautiful view of the pond and mountains.

Trail is easy to follow and mostly flat with a few climbs. About a half-mile past the bridge at Berry Mill Pond, you'l lhave to bushwhack through a dozen or so fallen trees. Ends up at a beautiful, lonely Southern Adirondack Pond. Day was hot, a bit buggy. Only saw two other hikers the entire way.

HikingBlowdown

Pretty good. Well marked but buggy and a bunch of trees blew down and block the trail. It’s pretty easy to get around the blockage, though.

Very buggy. There is a large stretch of the trail that is completely blocked by downed trees, but it was easy to just walk around them and get back to the trail. The lean-to at the end of the trail is awesome!

At about mile 2.50 there are a couple of big trees down so you have to go up and around to get back to the marked trail. It was a nice hike. ( 6.50 miles round trip)

HikingBlowdown

Excellent easy hike to the lake. The lake is beautiful and a worthwhile destination. The streams along the way made the walk lovely. The published route on this walk is not correct as it definitely has a re-marked portion of the trail to carry the trail above the beaver pond. At mile 2.6, there were 10+ major trees blown down across the path - easy to cross below them and around one. According to the log, we are the first to encounter the blow-down since the 10/31/2019 windstorm. Didn’t phase us a bit ... nice hike!

We just hiked this trail last Friday and it was a great experience! And the lean-to at the end is great for spending the night. Also it's 4.23 miles each way, not just over 6 miles round trip.
