    Bill Ingersoll
    "Cat Mountain Pond lies at the foot of the 500-foot cliffs of its namesake mountain; it is readily accessible by trail; and it is surrounded by a cluster of other small ponds. Despite all this, it is not generally seen as a destination in itself, but merely as something to look at from the summit of Cat Mountain. Actually, Cat Mountain Pond is one of the most attractive bodies of water anywhere in the Adirondacks, and it makes an ideal base camp for a winter overnight. Most people who snowshoe in this area head just to Cat Mountain, and few take the time to go on to Cowhorn and Bassout ponds. Together with Glasby Pond, which you inevitably pass while hiking to any of the other places, there is enough to see in this one location—four ponds and the mountain—to make it worthy of planning an entire weekend, taking your time as you explore all the ins and outs."
