To reach North Pond you will hike the trail back to Big Pond toward Hoffman Notch. Staying on a fairly flat trail you will cross a bridge near a small pond over an outlet. From here remain on the trail for roughly another 0.75 miles. From here take a heading NE to reach the Pond. The Shore of North Pond is only 0.25 miles off the trail. There used to be a very distinctive herd path in this area leading to the pond, but it can be very difficult to locate.
