Horseshoe is possibly the most attractive pond in the Massawepie area and one that might be overlooked the most as well. 

Getting there

From the intersection of Route 30 and Route 3 in Tupper Lake follow Route 3 toward Piercefield. Drive through Piercefield into Gale and locate the Massawepie Boy Scout Camp on the left. Continue down this road for 2.4 miles to the obscure path to the pond.


The narrow waterline, wetland areas, birding opportunities, and interesting peninsula give Horseshoe Pond an amazing quality unseen on other ponds. Horseshoe can be reached via Long Pond from the north using a longer carry trail. 

Type of launch: About 100 foot carry along a path, steep drop to water’s edge

Type of water: Horseshoe Pond is narrow and its construction keeps it well protected by the trees, making this a calm flatwater paddle.
