(3 mile RT canoe and 3.2 mile RT hike, difficult) From Paul Smiths follow NYS Rte. 30 south to Lake Clear. Continue on NYS Rte. 30 to Saranac Inn. Turn right onto Floodwood Road and follow for approximately 6 miles. This hike starts out with a short portage from the parking lot to the lake. The pleasant paddle on Long Pond ends at the marked trail that leads to Mountain Pond. From Mountain Pond an unmarked path follows the shoreline to the east and then heads due north climbing steeply to a flat grassy summit with great views of the lake-studded scenery below and the distant High Peaks. Parts of this route are unmarked, map and compass skills are a must.
