Nicks Pond is easily reached and the footing on the carry is gentle with no elevation change. The shore can be a bit difficult to launch from, but once you are on this small pond it’s well worth it.
How to get there
From the intersection of Route 3 and Route 30 in the Village of Tupper Lake follow Route 3 toward and through Cranberry Lake. Continue on Route three toward Star Lake and locate Inlet Road on the left just before Star Lake. Drive down Inlet Road for 1.6 miles to the trailhead on the left.
There is a 0.1 mile easy carry along a foot trail. The pond is flat water, with low wind.
