Madawaska Pond

1 to 2 Hours


Flatwater Paddles


This beautiful area of state lands has exceptional birding. Look for Common Loons, Common Mergansers, and American Black Duck. There's a long list of warblers which include Yellow-rumped, Pine, Northern Parula, and Common Yellowthroat.

This is one of the highlighted locations of the annual Paul Smith's VIC Great Adirondack Birding Celebration (GABC) which is a 3-day Adirondack birding festival. There are options for day-long birding workshops, naturalist walks and crafts.


The hand launch for paddling is 0.4 miles from the trailhead.


The pond is great for walking and paddling.

Getting there

Drive south on Route 30 to the intersection with Route 458, turning right. Watch for a left-hand turn 1.4 miles after the intersection. Follow this dirt road to the pond trailhead. Be aware the road is rough and in wet weather can be extremely muddy.

From the trailhead, walk the old road along the pond.
