Brief Directions

A lost pond in the Adirondack Park's High Peaks Wilderness.

Description

This pond no longer exists. Less then two weeks later Hurricane Irene "blew out" the dam that held it in place. The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation in conjunction with the Adirondack Park Commission chose to remove the remains of the dam to further the Wilderness designation of the region and keep in line with the State Constitution's "Forever Wild" clause.
