Paddling Mud Pond in the Cedarlands Conservation Easement

Mud Pond

A peaceful paddling and birding destination 

Mud Pond, with a boreal bog mat bordering much of its western shoreline, is a scenic place to paddle. I count it as one of my favorite canoeing locations since it became accessible to the public over a decade ago. An agreement between the Cedarlands Boy Scout Reservation and New York State in 2002 made most of the 5,500 acre parcel publicly available 10 months a year, and Mud Pond and the lands surrounding it accessible year-round.
