Stony Pond Trail Professional Review and Guide
"This Adirondack Park trail north of Irishtown and Minerva traverses varied terrain to visit Stony Pond along with its neighbors: Little and Big Sherman Ponds to the south, and Center Pond to the north. A hardwood and conifer forest, beaver sites, and fall foliage complement the serenity of the blue ponds.
The trail wears a single track down the middle of the woods road that leads east, away from Highway 28N. Yellow snowmobile and red-disk markers help indicate this route, which slowly ascends. Fir, spruce, tamarack, birch, maple, beech, and hobble-bush frame the travel aisle. Beyond a site that appears to have been quarried, you’ll proceed forward, passing first a private trail to a small pond and then a closed woods road, both on the right."
