Siamese Pond Wilderness

The Siamese Ponds Wilderness (SPW) is one of the larger Wilderness designated areas in the Adirondack Park. It extends some 24 miles north and south and 18 miles east and west and contains approximately 46,138.43 hectares (114,010.1 acres) of Forest Preserve lands. Associated with the SPW are the Dug Mountain, Forks Mountain and Chatiemac Primitive Areas. During the early part of the nineteenth century, logging became an important industry in the region, and most of the Wilderness was heavily cut over. Devastating fires at the turn of the century continued to significantly impact this natural resource.

Today, however, the area shows little evidence of these past impacts and has become known for its natural beauty. Popular points of interest include the Siamese Ponds that gave the area its name, Puffer Pond, Puffer Mountain, Chimney Mountain, Auger Falls, and Thirteenth Lake.

John Pond

"John Pond is reached via a former old road that travels to a lean to on the shore of a scenic pond. The start of the trail is reached via a maze of side roads in the outskirts of the small hamlet of Indian Lake. This is a pretty simple 2.2 mile hike to reach the pond that the whole family can enjoy. The pond is located in the very popular Siamese Ponds Wilderness in the central Adirondacks."
