This is a nice hike from Putnam Pond Campground to Pharoah Lake. The route follows a well marked trail, passes several beaver flows and brooks. The foliage looks great in the fall.

Backpacked in and camped on the lake. Great, well marked trail through some truly wild forest passing a few streams and ponds on the way to my favorite lake in the Adirondacks. Took my friend and I about 3 hours with 30-40lbs of gear each and plenty of stops. Would recommend a full body bug net this time of year and be prepared to walk a mile to the trail head since overnight parking at Putnam Pond is temporarily closed due to COVID. Saw a mink and one of the largest doe deer I’ve ever seen, and had a raccoon casually walk through our campsite at night. Nighttime was like a different world, with loon calls, bull frogs, owls, and a coyote howl echoing across the lake. Only regret was not staying longer.

Hiked as far as Grizzle Ocean today. Trail was in great shape with no blow down until we got to the loop trail around Grizzle Ocean. Grizzle Ocean lean-to was in great shape.

Scenic, well marked trail but very buggy in June. Did this along with Pharaoh Mountain in less than two days. Stayed overnight at one of the sites on Pharaoh Lake. Did not see a single soul on the trail until heading out and ran into two guys heading in. I really enjoyed the solitude that this trail offered. Views on the lake were gorgeous and the weather was perfect. I would suggest making camp and then hiking Pharaoh Mountain because the views up top are breathtaking, just make sure you have a bug net.
