Otter Pond

This short trail to a backcountry pond can only be reached via a short paddle across Eagle Lake.

How to get there

From the intersection of Route 74 and Route 9N in Ticonderoga, follow Route 74 west toward Schroon Lake. Continue to the small hamlet of Eagle Lake and cross over the bridge separating the two portions of the lake. In roughly 0.25 miles there is a launch on the left.

  • Hiking distance: 0.3 miles, one way. Be advised there is a paddle required before starting this hike.

Hiking

Once at the trailhead, you will be on a nice trail through a slightly darker forest. The trail climbs moderately for a bit to get you above the lake before it flattens out and brings you to the shore of the pond.
