Middle Settlement Lake Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This peaceful forest walk passes a large pond en route to a
remote, scenic lake with both a primitive campsite and a lean-to on its northern and western shores. Middle Settlement Lake is located in the middle of the 26,528-acre Ha-de-ron-dah Wilderness, the westernmost wilderness area in the Adirondack Park. Ha-de-ron-dah is another version of the native word “bark eater,” from which the name “Adirondack” is derived.

The Ha-de-ron-dah Wilderness is part of a larger 210,000-acre piece of land known as John Brown’s Tract. There were two John Browns of historical significance in the Adirondacks: the abolitionist who lived and was eventually buried near Lake
Placid, and the millionaire John Brown of Providence, Rhode Island, for whom Brown University is named."
