Wild cranberries, pitcher plants, bears and great Northern water snakes are what may greet you on this paddling adventure. Mountain lions? Really? Maybe? Trails, lean-to's, terrific views of the ponds from campsites.
Size: 40 Acres. Quiet setting for camping with a new lean-to on the south edge of the pond. Not really a paddling destination, however, due to a 2.0 mile carry to reach the pond. Still, a nice hike and worth carrying a lightweight (under 20 lbs.) boat if so inclined.
Trailhead: 13.3 miles east from Exit 28 on the Adirondack Northway on Rt. 74, turn right on Putts Pond Rd. at sign for Putnam Pond Campground. Trail starts near the exit from the campground loop.
