Very nice, easy walk to a beautiful little pond. Toughest part is the drive on a beat up road. Out and back is 3.4 miles total, just a few slight inclines on the way there. The pond is a favorite of local trout fishermen. There is also a nice campsite at the end of the trail.

Beautiful, crystal clear pond, hike in is nice. You can drive in to trailhead with a vehicle that has all-wheel drive and some clearance, if you want to go to Crane Pond this way, be advised the road was flooded just past Alder Pond as of 9/13.

Nice, short hike with some steep spots, trail is well-marked and maintained. I was up and down in under an hour, view of Schroon Lake and Pharoah Mountain area is nice.

Only problem.....mosquitoes. Terrible. Use bug repellent. Also,spectacular,was 1.3 miles and continued on,end of trail, 1.7 miles
Great trail. Highly recommend.

The waterfalls on the road in are amazing. The walk through the woods to Goose Pond was filled with gorgeous boulders covered in moss and the quiet of the woods gave one a feeling of peace. Finally, the views and tranquility of Goose Pond led me to relax and enjoy the wonders of the Adirondacks.

A nice little trail that ends at a pond with some rowboats. Got to the pond, sat down, enjoyed the view and had a beer with the girlfriend. Saw two other groups.

It took us about 40 minutes to reach the top. It's fairly steep at times and you'll want to bring bug spray. The view over Schroon Lake is worth the time and energy.

Great hike- I wish we had driven in to the real starting point of pharaoh mountain- it would have saved an hour walking a flat car dirt road walk. The views at the top were so worth it.
