At the back of the parking area there is a herd path that leads to the shore of the pond. The path is easy enough to follow but not marked. There is minimal elevation change as you hike the roughly quarter mile.
From the intersection of state Route 73 and 86 in Lake Placid, follow Route 86 toward Wilmington. Continue for 2.8 miles and park in the small pull off on the left, just a few hundred feet before Connery Pond Road.
