Length: 1.6 mi • Est. 40 m
NOTE: This is a combined paddle and hike. You cannot drive to this trailhead. You must kayak or canoe to the trailhead. The trail is well marked and maintained by the DEC. You can start at Indian Lake Marina (where you can rent a canoe if you don't have your own canoe or kayak) and paddle across the lake to a small bay just north of Kirpens Island. The trail starts at a rock with a white painted circle on the left side of the bay. It is 0.8 mile from the lake shore to the peak, with a fairly steep section near the end. There are beautiful views up and down Indian Lake and across to snowy mountain. Show more

Length: 5.2 mi • Est. 2 h 5 m
This well marked loop visits Clear Pond and John Pond. The main loop has yellow markers denoting an easy route, and the spurs that lead to the two ponds off the loop have red markers, for "difficult." It was a solid hike through some beautiful forest, and the views of Clear Pond are lovely. Some spots are really encroached on by flora, especially where sunny, but there are woodpeckers, and other birds flitting about.Show more
