Featured Cross Country Ski: East Mill Flow-Round Pond Trail, Schroon Lake

East Mill Flow Round Pond Trail MapEast Mill Flow-Round Pond Trail, part of the Hammond Pond Wild Forest, extends 5.2 miles between Round Pond Trailhead and East Mill Flow Trailhead in the Sharp Bridge Campground.

West of Round Pond, the trail is known as the East Mill Flow Trail, and south of Round Pond the trail is known as the Round Pond Trail. The trail undulates gently over most of the distance, descending 295 feet in a 0.6-mile section before the last flat 0.6 mile along Schroon Brook to the campground. Measuring from the Round Pond Trailhead, the trail passes Trout Pond at 0.5-mile, Round Pond at 1.5 miles, and crosses East Mill Brook at 2.8 miles.

    Awesome. Just got my wife back on skis after about a 35 year hiatus due to knee problems. Hills are not her cup of tea, so gentle rolling is what we are doing right now and this looks promising. Thanks for the article.
