Gull Pond
Your Adirondack Basecamp


Take the hike to Gull Pond, which is only a 0.4 mile hike along a marked foot trail with might have some wet spots in low areas. Stick to the trail!

Bushwhack around the pond to reach the rock cliff visible across the pond. Get great view of the whole pond from the top of the rock cliff.


From Exit 28 on Interstate 87, take Route 9 toward Schroon Lake. In 0.6 mile take a left onto Alder Meadow Road. Follow this for 3.8 miles to the Gull Pond Trail on the left. Park here.


A side trail on the left a short distance from the pond leads to a designated tent site. There is no camping allowed at the rock outcrop overlooking the pond.


It's well worth the added effort to have a pond all to yourself.

Shoreline Fishing

Most of the shore can be used for fishing. 

Boat Access

None without a portage. It would ideal to have a canoe to fish this pond in order to reach the deepest section, but it is not necessary. The trout tend to hang out more in the deeper waters during the hot months. 

Insider Tips

  • Use the boulders at the back end of the pond to access the deepest part of the pond. A herd path around the south end will get you there. 
  • Use the shallows for early season trout but the deeper area is for the summertime. 

Fish Species

Brook trout, bullhead
