North Hudson has a lovely bunch of pond hikes, and a particular set of three are worth investigating. They are all close together and good for any skill level.

Fans of fall foliage, (and yes, I am one) can fall into well-worn paths of enjoyment. Sometimes it is a great advantage to shake up the usual and take the road, or hike, or paddle...less traveled. One of the appeals of the Schroon Lake region is how very much fall we have, and in beautiful settings, too. This can be just a bit overwhelming. Here's some concepts which can help you get your arms
