Look for more boreal birds along the remote Blue/Azure Mountain Road. From the entrance gate of Paul Smith's College, take Route 30 a few hundred feet north and turn left (west) onto Keese Mill Road, until the paved road ends. From here proceed 4.1 miles (on what is now named Blue Mountain Road) to a parking area near a gate on the left, where there may be an Indian Rocks Canoe Access sign. Walk back a few hundred feet on the Blue Mt. Rd. to a gate on the opposite side. Walk around the gate and hike this dirt road about 1.5 mile to a T-intersection with an abandoned RR grade, taking a left on the rail bed to Madawaska Pond, just ahead on the right. Returning to the parking area, drive to mile 4.4 on Blue Mt. Rd. to a pullout just past a left curve warning sign. At 5.8 miles stop at a parking area by Quebec Brook bridge. Drive to 6.2 miles past a no dumping sign and park in the small wooded area to walk to Benz Pond on the right. Blue Mountain Road ends at Route 458 just south of St. Regis Falls.
