Hikers and campers may access the 2.3-mile Wolf Pond Trail from Boreas River/Wolf Pond Parking Area on the Blue Ridge Road near the bridge over the Boreas River.
The gently rolling and easy to navigate trail, located in the Vanderwhacker Mountain Wild Forest, crosses Wolf Pond Brook and proceeds northeast. The trail ends at the outlet of Wolf Pond and a lean-to is located up a short spur trail on the southwestern side of the pond. The lean-to is available on a first come-first served basis.
Wolf Pond provides scenic views of the High Peaks and surrounding mountains, as well as excellent fishing opportunities. The 59-acre pond is home to brook trout sustained by stocking, common shiners, and white suckers.
Visitors are encouraged to practice Leave No Trace principles when recreating in the Adirondacks to enjoy the outdoors responsibly and minimize impact on the natural resources.
