Spectacle Pond Trail is a 3 mile moderately trafficked out and back trail located near Schroon Lake, New York that features a great forest setting and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for hiking, walking, nature trips, and birding and is best used from March until October.
Hiked this on Jan 5, 2017. Easy walk up to the pond on microspikes. Trail was well packed down and a little icy. Walking across the lake was no problem. We bushwhacked over to Coffee Pond with no worries. Snowshoes were required in the woods as the snow as over a foot deep. Great views of Pharaoh Mt. from the surface of Spectacle Pond!
I was happy to see how well kept it was. Also, we went on a weekday but there was not too much traffic, which was nice. Very peaceful. Tons of picture opps, a nice little workout and a beautiful scenic route made for the perfect autumn hike ♡
One if the most beautiful hikes I have EVER taken!!
Nice easy trail, quiet and sweet !
Fairly easy, mostly flat trail to a nice pond with Pharaoh Mtn in the distance. Took about an hour one-way at a comfortable pace.
Very nice trail for a family hike with young children.
Nice easy trail! Great for a leisure hike.
