The 40,036 acre Hamond Pond Wild Forest is located in the northeastern Adirondacks near Ticonderoga and Crown Point, NY. There are nearly 20 miles of hiking trails to explore as well as a section of the future North Country National Scenic Trail that will eventually travel through the area. The eastern terminus of the 4600 mile NCT is currently scheduled to be in Crown Point State Historical Site. There are also popular bushwhacks in this wild forest.

This area sees very little use compared to Pharaoh Lake Wilderness to the south and its other neighbor, the Dix Mountain Wilderness to the west as well as Giant Mountain Wilderness to the north. If your looking for some solitude, you'll find it on the few trails in Hammond Pond Wild Forest. We have an early look at the North Country Trail in Hammond Pond Wild Forest. Look below for list of destinations as well as a couple of maps of this area.
